Cobra gunship

The Bell Huey AH-1 Gunship, often referred to by its nickname “Cobra,” was developed from the basic propulsion system of the UH-1. Heavily armed with rockets, missiles, and machine guns, the Huey Gunship was developed to protect troop carrying helicopters such as the UH-1 from enemy antiaircraft fire and to provide direct fire support to troops on the ground. The success of the Huey Gunship has resulted in a service life of more than half a century.
