The highest-scoring gunship pilot of the war with more than 250 vehicle kills, Gorshkov and his unit, the 473rd Attack Helicopter Squadron, were the terror of the skies over Western Europe. During the brutal offensives through Germany and Belgium, Gorshkov mastered the tactics of close air support and precision strikes against enemy targets. Late in the war, Gorshkov's flight was the first to be equipped with the KA-69 Warthog attack helicopter, capable of knocking out any armored vehicle in the world.
