Vietnam:

The utility of the Bell UH-1 series Iroquois, widely renowned as the "Huey," solidified air mobility as the primary means to insert infantry into combat environments.  The Huey began arriving in South Vietnam in 1963.  The UH-1H is a late variant of the Huey, the most common utility helicopter used in Vietnam.  To save weight, the Slick was fitted typically with M60 machine guns used by door gunners.  By the time the conflict ended, more than 5000 Hueys were introduced throughout SE Asia.  The Huey was a versatile aircraft and was employed in many aspects of operation.  They were used as air assault vehicles, command and control, medical evacuation, gun ships, counter-insurgency, and transport.
