- Tiger Gunship Pilot -
The first combat purpose helicopter designed by Eurocopter, it was a project which was collaborated between Germany and France as a requirement for a combat helicopter before the end of Cold War with prototypes built by 1991 for testing, first utilised by various factions including Australia during 2003.
Currently as of now, the Tiger is being utilised by the Eurasian Commonwealth Security Network for defensive purposes against terrorist threats and hostile forces who oppose the ECSN, whilst being agile due to its carbon fibre reinforced polymer and kevlar body, it is equipped with various types of weapons and the helicopter is also resistant to EMP based weapons.
Eurocopter Tigers have been utilised in heavy combat since the First Eurasian Conflict, France, Germany and even other parts of Europe including Spain participated in collaborating with the United States in their campaign against the Global Liberation Army, most of Europe utilised the Tigers for defensive use.
When the Eurasian Commonwealth Security Network was formed by Company of Liberty commanders and Osman Defenses Industries of Turkey, the faction was preparing to take combat roles against the new enemy known as the Global Liberation Resistance in order to keep Eurasian territories off GLRF Control; whilst the Tiger was used in most cases if combat is recorded and known to be dangerous, the helicopters along with the British WS-61 Commando Transport have been utilised mostly for dealing with the treats.
Introduction to the Boxer VTOL
Global Econox Aviation of Sweden introduced a functional combat VTOL gunship which replaces the Tiger for frontline service, known as the GEA-45 Boxer VTOL; the Boxer is known to be an inspiration from the old but still used Harrier Jump Jet, featuring a sleek and futuristic body shell and equipped with better weapons, this new aircraft sometimes outclasses the USA's F-35 Lightning II.
With the Boxer being introduced into the Commonwealth's main air force, several Eurocopter Tigers were placed in reserves and homeland defense operations, whilst the new Boxer takes roles for main attack and supporting various escorting missions to ensure things go smooth in Eurasia, several Eurocopter Tigers have also been seen on the field collaborating with several Tiger Gunships for combat roles during prototype stages years ago.
