Bell AH-99 Gunship is a helicopter introduced in Maximum Metal.

Sourcebook Description[]

The AH-99 is intended for one use: Ground Attack. Its array of weaponry is geared to that function, and all its weight capacity is sacrificed to it. Like all helicopters, it's not heavily-armored enough to slug it out with a ground unit, so it relies on long-range firepower to destroy targets from a stand-off position.
Special Equipment: IR baffling, damage control, ejection seats, environment control, chaff and flare dispensers, military radio with scrambler. microwave rangefinder, auto-pilot and navigation system, cybernetic linkage. ECM, ECCM, image enhancement, laser detector, military terrain-following radar, military radar detector linked to chaff dispenser, telescopic optics and thermograph.
Weapons: Turret-mounted stabilized 30mm autocannon (with two magazines), 40mm Auto-GL (with two magazines), and painting laser. Weapon wings hold 8 spaces of pod weapons; the normal load is two four-shot Hellfire pods, or four 19-shot 2.75" rocket pods.[1]
