"Cobra" Helicopter

The AH-1F Bell "Cobra" helicopter traces its lineage from the UH-1 Series helicopter. The original "Cobra" replaced the Huey's bulky fuselage with the thin-profile fuselage and tandem seating. For more than 40 years, the "Cobra" struck fear in the hearts of the enemy. The "Cobra" is an aerial weapons platform that provided direct and indirect fire support, armed reconnaissance and aerial escort and cover for transporting aircraft and ground convoys.
