As China had learned in their previous conflicts, fighting an enemy in remote and inaccessible locations was difficult using their largely conventional armoured forces. As such a design was drawn up for a well armed and armored attack helicopter which copied heavily from Russian gunships of the previous century and was designated Type-102 "HAN" by the PLA design comittee.
After some other trivial issues were solved (the rotor blades had the unfortunate tendency to snap off during turns) it was ready for service. The protracted development period paid off; troops in remote areas suddenly had the equivalent of a heavily armoured flying tank supporting them. The 100mm guns punched through the roof armour of tanks with ease, and the helicopter had enough ammunition to provide fire support over the battlefield for hours.
