Attack helicopters are helicopters that are armed with ATGMs ( look it up), rocket pods, and 20-30mm chain/miniguns. Two examples are the MI-24 Hind and the AH-64 Apache. They are used to blow the shit out of anything in range, including tanks, infantry, IFVs, and anything else unlucky enough to be near them ( unless the helicopter is an OH-58 Cayuse or an AH-6 Little Bird, in which case you are fine unless you manage to make it crash on you)
The AH-64D Apache Longbow is one of the best attack helicopters on the world!
