Huey Cobra

«

This Huey Cobra is looking over our firebase. Their load of munitions was the largest of any helicopter and were welcome at any firefight. They carried an automatic machine gun, a grenade launcher and rocket pods on both sides. The pilots and weapons officer sat in a front/back formation like in a jet fighter. The Cobra was the only helicopter set up this way, resulting in a narrow profile that presented a smaller target to enemy gunners.
