Knocking out the HIND:
Got this angle from an Apache pilot who is quit familiar
with the HIND....
"the Hind is underpowered, sluggish and much less
manuverable just about anything else you can fly against
it. However, it's like an Abrams M-1 with a rotor, a flying
tank. Guns won't take it down if fired at the body of
the craft, although a stinger missle's are effective there.
Small arms fire from the ground is useless against it.
However, the HIND is an easy kill. All you need to do
is get your craft above it in the high 6 o'clock position
and fire down through it's rotor system. Guns or cannon
are all it takes to bring it down from above."
Since the Interactive Magic's HIND simulation is extremely
accurate, this becomes a great and effective tactic to
use, (or beware!) while playing the game, especially in
