Military and Civilian Helicopters

Last Updated: 5/12/2015

The helicopter was born during World War 2 and entrenched itself in combat by the time of the Vietnam War.


The helicopter had been brewing in the minds of engineers for some time before their practical use was finally witnessed during World War 2. The category then saw an expansion in the years following the conflict which led to their service in the wars that followed. Today, the helicopter serves military forces and civilian market needs equally, with a plethora of designs available from proven key manufactures.


There are a total of (111) Helicopters in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below by alphanumeric order descending. Flag images indicative of country of origin.
