A category of weapon target in the Command model.
A Helicopter is an aircraft with large rotary wings mounted on the fuselage. The rotation of the rotors provide lift, and the capability for vertical take-off and landing. Helicopters can also hover and pivot in-place. They fly horizontally by applying slight tilts to the rotor assembly. However, horizontal speed is generally less than that of fixed-wing aircraft.
Command uses the weapon target types to determine if a particular weapon and sensor system can engage a particular target. For example, targets on land will often require different sensors and processing than targets on water. And, mobile targets will require terminal sensors and guidance to bring the warhead to the target.
Command distinguishes the weapon target types into:
