The Hostile Environment Protection (Desert) Perk represents the seals and preventative treatments applied to the SuperCobra to protect the airframe from saltwater corrosion. These measures also work well in keeping sand out of the aircraft.
The stats above are only for the basic AH-1W airframe; a variety of external stores can be carried.
A typical load of 8 AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and 2 19-tube 2.75" rocket launchers is represented in game stats as HATM w 8 rounds (arc FF) and 2 MRP/18s w 36 rockets (arc FF).
