Notes
1) 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.

2) These statistics are for the basic AH-1Z, with no external stores. External loads may be added to the airframe, with appropriate increases in Threat Value.
For example, a typical load of 8 AGM-114 Hellfires and 2 19-tube 2.75" rocket pods is equivalent in game stats to:
• HATM (fire arc FF) w 8 missiles, 2 MRP/18s (fire arc FF) w 36 rockets
(Modified OS: 3099.64, Modified TV: 1623)

Players are encouraged to fit other loads to the basic SuperCobra stats presented.
