Helicopter vs. jet fighter
How is an Air-to-Ground attack helicopter going to take out jet fighter?
- Apparantly, by firing unguided rockets at it, according to the movie (which is actually how jet interceptors were designed to take down other planes in the late 50's, using a special radar-assisted targeting computer to lead the shot). More likely, the helicoptor would use any Stinger SAM missiles it might be carrying to defend itself against the jet. Still, unless the helo pilot found a very good place to hide until the jet had zipped past, it's in a somewhat untenable position against a jet fighter, which not only has dedicated air-to-air weapons systems, but is much much faster.--Raguleader 05:52, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
I see gross box office take in the article but not production costs which are typical of articles about films. Also, I can't find that anywhere else online. Any takers? 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:20, 1 November 2013 (UTC)
