I'm not sure entirely what it could do differently but it certainly would be very cool to have it in game. Maybe give it an increased spotting distance as it can just hover to spot enemy ships and would not have to fly around at the cost of a lower duration. To help it spot ships further away or in stealth.

as of now, Wargaming did not gave helicopter to any ships despite some having helipad on deck (like the Republique). Tho it would be nice to have such consumable on some ships, even if it would be only for ASW.

At the end, it's just a spotter. Visually cool, perhaps, but that's about it.

I would implement it as an ASW consumable for the coming subs (and give it to more ships with helipad).

I agree on this idea :Smile_medal:

If anything, I’d expect a helicopter to provide less spotting and range than a plane because it would circle at a lower altitude. I am amused by the idea of any of the 150mm-armed German cruisers with a spotting consumable that increases their firing range, though. They already are very good at burning BBs at max range. :fish_haloween:

We might just be getting some ASW consumables. Note that the special features of one of the ships in the upcoming special mode next patch is the mortars we first saw tested in Key Battles. I wouldn’t be surprised if WG is testing the mechanics for ASW mortars. There’s also the fact the two other ships can submerge and has variable torpedo armament, respectively, so subs seam to very much be on the developers’ minds.

I would love to see it. Honestly, the floatplanes in the game don't really behave differently from helicopters anyway. They could implement them as a simple re-skinning with no trouble.

Truthfully I always thought the Fl-282 was a gyrocopter rather than a helicopter but I was wrong. It looks like a gyrocopter but it is indeed a true helicopter. It would be cool to see them in the game.

Looks like it would be a harsh experience driving that in a storm.

There were some models with enclosed cockpits and various other attachments.
