Computer programs have been devised to calculate both steady state pitch attitude and dynamic pitch response to a pulse, gun-initiated moment of a typical helicopter. It is shown that for large fixed gun pulses the resulting motions may be difficult to control. A critical condition is the ability to hold position and attitude at hover.
