I recently made a helicopter gunship and it said I could position it over mountains. So, I moved it onto one of my mountains. A few turns later, my gunship dies of attrition.

How does this happen - How does attrition work?

I was not at war with anyone at this time, and it would have alerted me if there was a barbarian (i'm not even sure if there are barbarians anymore).

Helicopter Gunships receive damage if kept on a mountain tile. They state this in their informational view.

  • This applies to any unit that ends it's turn (or remains stationary) on mountain terrain. I think it's 50% for all units, but check the tooltip in case it varies. Aug 27, 2013 at 0:32
