      over priced hardware!
      US doctrine…. “over promise and under deliver”, “overprice and under perform”.
      The French make far better attack helicopters!
      So too the Russians!

      Deal with it!

    Either AH-64 is junk (Israelis Apaches, huh?) or Yemenis have good aims. Maybe both, good either way.
    A human death is not something to celebrate, but the pilots were tools of oppression, I’m sure very few shed tears for their death.
    1 less death machine and 2 less death mercenaries will benefit the world.

    By now attack helicopters is very vulnerable to ground ATGM and high caliber machine guns increasingly common in the region.
