    1. Do landed helicopters count towards friendly stacking?
    2. A Hovering Helicopter can fire any weapon, A Landed Helicopter can fire any non-Green ATGM weapon, A flying Helicopter can fire any weapon on its flying side. A flying NOE Helicopter can fire no weapon?!?
    3. The only weapon that can shoot NOE helicopters is Non-missile AA weapons?

    1. Yes!
    2. Correct on all counts. NOE flying was pretty intensive, only 10 feet off the ground (or above the woods, or other terrain). One small mistake with the cyclic and you hit the ground or trees.
    3. Correct. Helicopters at NOE are too close to the ground for missile targeting systems to resolve them. Even a stinger has a minimum altitude at which it can shoot, being IR based. Radar? Too much ground clutter. But you can shoot them with tanks...
