Bell UH-1 Iroquois

First flown in 1960, the HU-1B (now UH-1B) carried a crew of two and seven troops or three litters, two sitting casualties and a medical attendant, or 3,000 pounds of freight. In Vietnam, many UH-1Bs were used in the armed support role, with a rocket pack and electrically-controlled machine gun mounted on each side of the fuselage. UH-1Bs were also used by the South Vietnam and Cambodia Air Forces. The UH-1B was superseded by the UH-1C on the Bell assembly line. Another version, the UH-1F, was used for psychological warfare missions in Vietnam. The final production version was the UH-1H. Deliveries of this version began in 1967 and totaled 3,573.
