So, I just recently found something interesting when searching for multiplayer military flight arcade game, especially with combat helicopters.

Heliborne is a tactical helicopter multiplayer arcade game developed by JetCat Games studio, based in Vilnius, Lithuania. Currently, it’s still in Alpha development, so only invited players can participate in the early development.

Even if it’s still in Alpha stage, JetCat devs have already introduced the early gameplay of the Heliborne on 29-7-2015.

Various bases scattered around the map and must be captured to gain victory points. You need a transport helicopter to capture, loaded with airborne troops, instead of a standard attack helicopter.
