The WZ-10 is a Chinese attack helicopter built by Changhe Aircraft Industries Corporation. In development since the mid-1990s, the WZ-10 was introduced to the People's Liberation Army in December 2010. The helicopter was designed out of the need of a dedicated anti-tank helicopter, as China had only the WZ-9 as an interim attack helicopter, that was better suited as a utility helicopter.
The WZ-10 is armed with 57mm rocket pods, the HJ-10 anti-tank missile launcher on stub wings, and a 23mm cannon mounted in the nose. The helicopter has also gone into full production since its acception to the military.
The helicopter itself performs nearly identically to the AH-1Z, as its cannon is not as powerful as the Havoc's. Its rockets are also better suited for anti-infantry roles as they have a higher blast radius, while the gunner's guided missiles can easily destroy enemy armor.
Battlefield 4EditThe WZ-10, known in game as the Z-10W, appears in Battlefield 4 as the People's Liberation Army's attack helicopter. It can be seen on the map Siege of Shanghai opposing U.S. AH-1Z Vipers.
