The Royal Air Force's main attack helicopter is the T-129, called the H-16 Hachoir by our military. Our main utility helicopter (used for reconnaissance, transport, and search and rescue) is the NHI NH90, referred to as the H-15 Condor in the Royal Air Force. Our heavy transport helicopter is the MI-26M, known as the H-14 Aves here.

I'll only post one, as my helicopter fleet is becoming extinct, being an FT nation. Even so, helicopters had never let us down, due to their reliability and their easiness to repair than our updated jet gunships.
We use authorized copies of tuned and overhauled Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche ( Known in Portugal as the Bravia HA-153 Shadow-Dragon).

Nervous fingers strike the keys. A hand wipes the sweat from brow. Lambrini wonders again if he should be exposing so much of his nations military secrets. Eventually they'll catch me, but the world must know! He thinks. He closes the screen with haste once he presses "send," rises from his desk, and hurries away from his desk as if its mere existence betrays him to the authorities.

Here is some sort of gunship/transport hybrid. I am unsure what it is armed with.

These are some of the many Vtol attack planes the military operates. I realize that, compared to some foreign nations this tech seems antiquated, but don't be fooled! Most of the photos I have been able to obtain are only of the militias. I have no Idea what the actual military uses. And since they outsource to Private Defense Firms.... it can only spell bad news. I do know that the government has the capability of manufacturing higher tech goodies. Ornithopters patrol the cities. Ive never seen one act aggressively, but they certainly scare the crap out of me.
