This is a bit new for the Cartels, RPG's against other Cartels Vehicles and even Police and Military vehicles have been going on for years, now at Helicopters, and with regular gunfire as well. gun fire did not bring down the black-hawk in a crash, but it could not fly anymore. The military is going to have to change it's tactical use of the Helo as well, since the normal hovering and intimidation model will not work with people firing at it, even with AK rifle fire, let alone the Barret 50 cal rifles that seem to be found all over Mexico now days. Now the RPG, and it is believed they have access to SA's as well. Perhaps even 18's.
