The Vietnam War’s ultimate weapon.

The UH-1, or the “Huey,” was used in various roles throughout the Vietnam War, such as battlefield ambulance, search-and-rescue aircraft and supply transport. However, the Huey is most famous for its use as a gunship. Outfitted with rockets, grenades and machine guns, the Huey became the U.S.’s ultimate Vietnam War weapon. Kit features a highly detailed cockpit and two figures, rotating main and tail rotors, assorted plated parts and authentic Vietnam War-era U.S. Army squadron markings for the 114th Assault Helicopter Company and the 1st Air Cavalry Division.
