The UH-1 ‘Iroquois’ is a light multirole utility and combat helicopter. Better known as the ‘Huey’ from its original ‘HU-1’ designation, the UH-1 is one of the world’s most iconic helicopters. A mainstay of U.S. forces in the Vietnam War, the Huey shot to fame following its starring roles in Hollywood blockbusters The Deer Hunter (1978) and Apocalypse Now (1979).
Known as a ‘slick’, the Huey’s primary mission was to insert and extract combat troops. Airborne assaults in Vietnam consisted typically of up to 10 slicks ferrying infantry, with two or three gunships providing protection and a ‘Charlie/Charlie’ Command and Control helicopter orbiting overhead. The Huey’s other missions included forward supply; search and rescue (SAR); reconnaissance and the medical evacuation (Medevac) of injured troops. The UH-1H can carry 4000 lbs of weapons & cargo including up to 14 combat troops or 6 stretchers. Armed with rockets and machine guns, it can also act as an ad hoc gunship.
Developed in the 1950s, the UH-1 entered service in March 1961. The UH-1H with the uprated 1,400 shp (1,000 kW) Lycoming T53-L-13 is the most-produced variant of the 16,000-plus that have been built since then. The Huey continues to serve worldwide in both military and civilian roles.
The DCS: UH-1H features an updated model of the helicopter armed with rockets and door-mounted M134 six-barrel rotary miniguns. The simulation offers superb flight and systems modeling. Helpful Easy Flight and other modes reduce the learning curve for new players. Player positions include pilot, co-pilot, and door gunners. A handcrafted storyline campaign is included as well as a number of single missions and a training course.
A robust and trustworthy work-horse, the UH-1 evokes enormous affection from former crews. When you fly it, you will immediately understand why.
