The AH-50 Hawk helicopter is a light transport/attack helicopter featured in Crysis 2 and Crysis 3, used primarily by C.E.L. L troops. It is also used by the United States Marine Corps.

Armaments[]

The gunship variant of the AH-50 is equipped with two HMGs, one on each side, which are controlled by two gunners. In Crysis 3 they can be either equipped with two wing mounted miniguns or two door mounted HMGs.

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.

The helicopters in Crysis 3 gameplay lacks the rocket pods and are only seen firing their rockets within cutscenes.

Usage[]

This vehicle is only featured in single player 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.  

Combat[]

The AH-50 attacks Alcatraz for the first time in the mission "Road Rage," but, at that time, the player sits in a heavily armored ICV and may just blast the Helicopter away.

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.

Trivia[]

  • 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 chain guns and missiles.
