The helicopter in the Vietnam Conflict certainly came into its own, fulfilling a variety of roles for both sides.

Several types of helicopters were used during the Vietnam Conflict- from observation and MEDEVAC to gunships and dedicated attack types. This is alongside the standard troop carrier which also doubled as supply aircraft and artillery transports. Even some drones, like the DASH, were in play for the United States Navy. The American Bell UH-1 Huey is the most famous of the Vietnam helicopter types and proved a workhorse for air cavalry units throughout the war. The attack helicopter - embodied by the HueyCobra, was also used for the first timein warfare. The U.S. Marines liked it enough to adopt it as the SeaCobra.
