I'm stuck on the game, I'm on the boat and after planting the bomb you then have to go to the front, and then you have to shoot down a helicopter, can someone help as I've now been stuck for some time & it's getting really frustating, I just keep getting killed

IMO the worst thing to do is to stay on the ship. Jump into the sea and swim as fast as you can to the shore. There are some lonely trees - get behind them, prepare your guns (a good thing is a grande launcher) and destroy the chopper. You can also park one of the armored vehicles on the beach before planting the bomb - then you'll be able to use the mounted gun or the grenade launcher.

There is a way to do it from on the ship, this is how I completed it: As soon as the bomb is planted, sprint up to and inside the bridge, with a light weapon so you run faster. Then wield the rocket launcher.
The chopper will get into a pattern where it will start from the rear and move forward to where Crow can shoot into the doorway where you are. If you practice, and lead the chopper a little, you can fire just when you see the nose of the chopper, leading it a bit, and your rocket will hit the chopper. As soon as you fire, scoot back to cover. After the chopper backs off again, you can scoot forward. You should be able to get one or two hits onto the chopper for each "back and forth" cycle. If you land somewhere in the neighborhood of 8-10 rocket hits you'll drive the chopper off and complete the level.
If you get the timing down, you should be able to win before the ship sinks. I definitely don't think this is the easiest or most reliable way to complete the level but it worked for me.
You can do a practice run without actually shooting rockets, just move back and forth and get a sense for the chopper's movements and timing (although I think your hitting the chopper with rockets will in fact influence what it does, versus if you weren't doing anything). It's critical to get a sense of how much to "lead" the chopper with your rocket to get a hit, this isn't too hard since the chopper is fairly close.

Go to around the bottom of page three of the sticky below. There is a video you can watch, and Several walk throughs. This is the most often asked question on the board!

Go get a 4wd vehicle. Park it behind the wrecked ship behind the boat. Pull it right up until it touches the wrecked ship. That will provide plenty of cover. Set the bomb, jump off the back of the ship and go get in the 4wd and then wail on the helicopter. After a bit it will start smoking and leave. You can't kill Crowe. I shot him twice in the head with a sniper rifle in another level and he didn't even bleed. You get to kill him later on from posts I've seen.

playing medium, finally got around it tonight. Need full armor and health, best if you have OICW with several explosive shells, and/or rocket launcher. I can't hit anything with grenade launcher.
Anyway, set charge, immediately jump off the BACK of the ship, stay deep to lessen impact of explosion and swim to closest beach with trees. Explosion will cost you all your armor and about a third of your health. Don't break surface until you reach beach. Your stamina should last
Mark the chopper with your binocs, Hide behind tree and bushes in prone position never letting them get a clear shot. Chopper will eventually spend most of the time low on the horizon. Stick your head out and hit it over and over with RL or explosive rounds from OICW. Should fly off and crash eventually.
Since your health is low you can't take many hits, so hide, take your time and hit them.
