Product Description

The United States Marine Corps UH-1E "Huey Iroquois" was a modified version of the Army UH-1B. The essential modifications were different electrical systems, radios, a rotor brake (for use on aircraft carriers where the thought of a spinning rotor on a rolling ship was not ideal), and an aluminum fuselage (again due to carrier operations and the presence of corrosives such as salt water). The new Huey quickly found itself embroiled in a controversy in the Marine Corps over tactical doctrine and the use of armed helicopters. Unarmed U.S.M.C helicopters were being shot up over hot LZs and increasingly had to rely on armed US Army gunships for escort. The UH-1Es were built with the US Army armament mounts, so that once the decision was made to arm U.S.M.C Hueys it was easy to do so. There were never enough U.S.M.C UH-1E Gunships in Vietnam to fulfil the countless missions they were called to perform. These included: Medivac Escort, Direct-Fire Support of engaged Marine ground units, and the insertion and extraction of Recon teams.
