Description official descriptions
Take the Apache, the new Longbow Apache, The Blackhawk, Comanche Scout, Comanche Gunship, or the MD-500 Defender on campaigns or missions. The updated graphics engine provides much more detailed terrain variation, with true valleys/hills and even train tunnels that you can fly through. When you are promoted to a sufficient rank you can take along multiple helicopters to accomplish your objectives. The dynamic campaign generates new missions based on multiple maps. Attack, defend, sweep, scout, rescue, drop... Lots of missions to keep you busy. The crew learns and grows in experience as they continue to survive and succeed. A full mission recorder allows you to view every member of your team as they fight or die. Plenty of weapons are available for your side from the latest Hellfire missiles and Sidearm anti-radar missiles to the old-fashioned chain gun and gun pods are available for your use. The enemy can be well-armed as well, from deadly 2S6 gun/missile combo to old-fashion ZSU-23, even the occasional MiGs.

It is actually possible to perform a barrel roll in any of the helicopters in the game, given sufficient altitude, even the Blackhawk.
There are animals in each of the theaters (camels in Persian Gulf, Penguins in Antartica, and so on), and you can shoot the animals (indeed, splatter them with rockets should you choose to) unless you're using the German version. In the German version the animals are invincible.
Gunship 2000 is the first game where you can pilot a chopper and fly through a train tunnel... Long before the final scene in the movie Mission: Impossible.
If you click on the "monitor" in the main menu section (inside the base office), the screen will switch among three modes, one of them is pong, one is gunship, and third is some document... The electric outlet sparks when clicked.
Look for various "advertising signs" that you can destroy through the different areas. They advertise other MicroProse games, and you actually get points for destroying them.
