    smells like a repost

    wouldn’t the down draft from the propellers drastically change the trajectory of the bullet?

    Probably not, the bullet would be out of the area of effect so fast I don’t think it would register any changes. But I don’t have any Science! to back me up, just a guess.

    Yeah, I think schulzbrianr is right, I don’t think the rotor wash would have any effect on the outgoing round. I’d think your biggest problem would be actually aiming a rifle with all the vibration and movement you’d be experiencing. And just forget about any kind of long range sniping from that perch…

    Why would anyone snipe off a gunship anyway? It has an array of giant amazing weapons for the job. Real reason is quite interesting, thanks Mr/Ms Duck
