How to compare helicopter vs jet? In which situations is jet superior and in which situations is helicopter superior?
In general, jets are used for long range missions and for bombing raids. They are used to be able to travel to an area quickly and attack a force or fortification whilst also being able to leave rapidly. They are largely used against armored vehicles or fortifications.
Helicopters on the other hand are more maneuverable and are usually used for shorter range missions. They are also used more against infantry rather than fortified buildings, although they can also be used for this purpose. Helicopters are also better at landing in more difficult spots as they do not require a landing strip and are often used in hard to reach areas such as mountains or jungle.
