The gunship variant of the AH-50 is equipped with two HMGs, one on each side, which are controlled by two gunners. The AH-50 also has two rocket pods, also one on each side, one located directly above each landing gear. A single hit from a rocket causes a great deal of damage, but these are seldom fired.
This vehicle is only featured in singleplayer and is not drivable or usable by the player. AH-50s are seen on many levels, but only attack the player in some levels. The AH-50 is seen in usage by the Marines as they redeploy to Manhattan after the Ceph are defeated.
JAWs, dismounted HMGs and L-TAGs are effective against the AH-50. Usually, killing the HMG gunners will also cause the AH-50 to retreat. However, the AH-50 may come back and fire its missiles at you.
- The AH-50 is unique in that it is a Notar (a helicopter with no tail rotor). However, unlike other notars that use air jets, the AH-50 has dual counter-rotating main rotors with one situated above the other.
- In Crysis 2, one can witness AH-50S taking down a Ceph Gunship with chainguns and missiles.
