Looks like a hard landing only... There is a reason why helo with non retractable landing gear has better survival rate and is rated a better design. Almost all attack gunship used non retractable landing gear design despite less aerodynamic.

Broken tail boom right beside the cockpit, probably the tail rotor malfunctioned causing a spiral hard landing.
