Livingbrit, Cobras are comparatively rare nowadays. Though the USMC still uses them (mostly because the Navy keeps cancelling any planning for a replacement) there are just a few Cobra units still in the Guard- otherwise, the Army is all Apaches. Also, the Cobra is equipped with a three barrel 20mm cannon, not 30mm.
Whoops, my bad. Shame about the Cobra though, they were flying before I was born and I was sure they’d just keep going and going. In my mind, there are few aircraft as outright menacing nose on.
Mind you, it’s nice to know our airmen have all the shiny, up-to-date date death at their fingertips in the Apache]]>
