Rotorcraft Rotorcraft are ASW Aircraft, being used to trigger some OASW and Land-based ASW attacks.

As they do not have any Dive Bombing Dive Bomber Attack stat, they do not participate to Phases 2 & 3 of Aerial Combat and are immune to shootdown. They:

  • Will launch during aerial battle if other planes are launched, but cannot start an aerial battle on their own.
  • Allow BBV, CAV, AV, and LHA to perform ASW attacks.
  • CVL and Kaga Kai Ni Go equipped with them will still require a Dive Bomber Dive Bomber or a Torpedo Bomber Torpedo Bomber to attack submarines, as they are unable to attack anything without a bomber.
  • AS, AR, and some CVB can equip them, but the former cannot attack SS, and the latter has a carrying capacity of 0 so they do not function.
  • AO can equip them, but their attack animation will still be a depth charge animation.

Their LBAS Combat Radius cannot be extended.
