Built in response to the United States Army's needs for a medical evacuation helicopter, the UH-1B Iroquois helicopter was developed in the late 1950s. Arriving in Vietnam in 1963, more than 5,000 of the aircraft were used during the course of the Vietnam War, making it the most common utility helicopter at that time. Known by many Vietnam Veterans as the “sound of our war,” the Hueys were used for medevac, as well as for command and control and air assault, transportation of personnel and material, and gun ships. A testament to its excellent design, the UH-1B Iroquois is still in use in around 40 countries.
