Gonna go through and respond to a lot of the posts here.
They don't. I even googled it! The only references to aircraft usage was when they hijacked them, and they only lasted briefly before being shot down.
Practically speaking, anything bigger then a littlebird wouldn't survive long enough after its hijacked to make its way to the battlefield.
Absolutely no. Not only isn't there any reference for in real life, it just doesn't make sense RP.
With the new rules, it will make it so that US Officers won't be able to spawn attack helicopters, with them being limited to non attack ones. The attack ones will be donator only at this stage. There is stuff coming down the pipeline in relation to the non-attack helicopters.
When it comes down to it, Taliban don't need attack helicopters. There's one simple reason. US doesn't have a counter for it. At the moment, Taliban currently has a counter for helicopters (Guided RPGs) while US has to rely on bullets. The only way I would even consider supporting the idea would be if US got rockets too (I.E Javelin or something similar).
Before we start making changes, lets see how we go with the new regiments first yeah?
