The Pilot must be aware that he/she has no offensive weapons and must rely on friendly/gunner support in case attacked.

The WZ-9 in real life.

The WZ-9 is an armed utility helicopter built by the Chinese Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation for the People's Liberation Army. The helicopter is a licensed copy of the French Eurocopter AS365 Dauphin and has been in service since 1994.

Although originally manufactured as a utility helicopter under the designation Z-9, the helicopter was modified with hardpoints on stub wings to mount anti-tank rockets and missiles. The primary use for the armed version was to be an interim attack helicopter while the WZ-10, a dedicated attack helicopter, was being developed. It still serves its interim role while the WZ-10 is being put into full production.

Battlefield 2: Modern Combat

In Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, the WZ-9 takes on a role very similar to the UH-60L Black Hawk. It has a pilot who controls the aircraft, as well as having access to anti-tank rocket pods. Unlike the Mi-24 Hind, the WZ-9 has two gunner positions, each armed with an M134 Dillon Minigun. On top of that, the vehicle carries another two passengers that have access to their kit weapons and gear.

In singleplayer, the WZ-9 is used by the player in the mission Heavy Tonnage to destroy the cargo freighter, and is also seen in Air Traffic Control used by the PLA, although the player can kill the pilots before they reach their helicopters and steal one themselves.

In multiplayer, the WZ-9 appears on the maps Bridge Too Far, Cold Front, and Special Op; all at the Chinese Base on the respective map.

The vehicle handles much like the Black Hawk, although it is less maneuverable than the AH-64 Apache, AS-665 Tiger, or the Mi-24. With a coordinated team, the vehicle can be a very stable weapons platform, being able to take down enemy armor with the pilot's rockets, while the gunners deal with infantry, as well as being able to drop off two more infantry, or have its passengers repair the vehicle.

The WZ-9, known in-game as the Z-9 Haitun, is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 4.

Singleplayer

In Singleplayer the Z-9 Haitun appears first in Shanghai used by the PLA, delivering troops to the tower. It appears multiple times trying to fire at the player when Pac is trying to unlock the door. Later in the level as an escape vehicle for Kovic, Hanna and Jin Jie.

It appears later in South China Sea and Suez, often delivering troops via hovering and having ground troops rope down. In which they can be fired upon by the player to kill multiple enemies with a rocket.

Multiplayer

In the multiplayer section of Battlefield 4, the Z-9 Haitun serves as the PLA's air transport

The Z-9 Haitun main role is to transport infantry to certain parts of the map, similar to Battlefield 3, any person in the chopper can now spawn inside the chopper without having a person from the same squad in the chopper allowing for a single chopper to deliver more people at different location if players leave the chopper.

The Pilot must be aware that he/she has no offensive weapons and must rely on friendly/gunner support in case attacked. Mostly its best to avoid being seen (Enemies with air radar will have to be avoided via running away) by enemy choppers and ground AA as going up in a fight against one with no support in any way is suicide at best. Flying with care and trying to shake off an enemy with evasive maneuvers in urban maps such as Siege of Shanghai can work well if done right. The pilot has IR flares to deflect

The two gunners are armed with a mini-gun as the only defensive weapon. Unlike Battlefield 3, the gunners mini-guns cannot damage heavy armor such as MBTs and can only damage light vehicles and all air vehicles. Infantry may be hard to hit if moving at fast speed so training may be needed to use the guns efficient. Against choppers, communication is key with the pilot and gunner.

The 4th and 5th slots of the vehicle are players who can equip any gadget or weapon. This means an Engineer can turn a transport chopper into a improvised anti-vehicle platform use a lock on weapon such as a FGM-148 Javelin for grounds vehicles and an FIM-92 Stinger or SA-18 for air. A Repair Tool can be used in the correct spot to repair the vehicle after taking a hit.

As with all transports in the game, it has no unlocks or upgrades, and only the paint scheme can be customized. Its default paint/finish is a shiny black, similar to the WZ-10.

It is the equivalent to the USMC's UH-1Y Venom and the RGF's Ka-60 Kasatka.
