Fear my howl!
- Wolfhound pilot on the attack
Wolficon
The Wolfhound is a powerful Russian attack helicopter capable of engaging both aerial and ground targets.

Description

The Wolfhound is a powerful airborne weapons platform capable of tackling the toughest of adversaries, whether on the ground or in the air. Once the Wolfhound has locked onto its quarry, a flurry of HE missiles or bullets from its high powered machine guns will be sure to rip its target apart. Though powerful, Wolfhounds are sluggish and will fall victim to anti-aircraft fire if caught up in it.

Overview

In spite of its official designated role, the Wolfhound is one of the few units in the game that is strong versus everything (in the case of the Wolfhound, it is weak against base defenses however). Therefore it is a common strategy for Russian commanders to build squadrons of these notorious units. The Wolfhound may not kill as fast as other tier 3 Russian units, but makes up for it in flexibility.

Although it is an aerial unit that is useful in nearly any situation, it is best sent in to escort slower Russian units (particularly Scud Launchers), as well as provide anti-air support to Russian armies. On the defensive, it is the prime Russian unit against enemy aircraft, especially anti-structure bombers such as Epsilon Basilisks. This is supported by the Wolfhound's slow speed compared to other helicopters, and since it cannot fire on the move, it will face difficulty chasing down faster opponents.

The Wolfhound is not viable against heavy anti-aircraft defenses, which forces the Russian player to use inferior flak weaponry.
