The MI-11 is a latest-generation utility helicopter now fielded by Red Star forces. It is multi-role in that its design fits civilian use as well, but the military variant has been given basic armor, side-door weaponry, and a military avionics package to adapt it to military operations.
It is a solid and capable vehicle, well-suited to the job it has been given in the RS military.
The holder sports dual 7.62mm Gatling guns in a defensive left and right 'doorgun' configuration, plus Domovoi Decoy Launchers for defensive measures. The door gunners also have laser target markers, to designate and 'hand off' specific targets.-- Field Guide text entry
The RSA's MI-11 is an agile and durable transport helicopter capable of insertion and extraction of RSA troops.
Within the RSA, it is available in civilian versions; however the military version is by far superior to its civilian counterpart, with advanced armor, weapons, and avionics that put it on par with its Western Coalition rival the UH-66 Seneca.
The MI-11 sports two door-mounted miniguns usable by passengers in the rear of the vehicle.
With an advanced Domovoi Decoy Launcher system, the MI-11 is capable of holding out in battle in the right hands.
