Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Osprey's study of AH-1 helicopters and their participation in the Vietnam War (1955-1975). Bell’s AH-1 Cobra was the first dedicated helicopter gunship to reach frontline service anywhere in the world. Developed as a private venture by the manufacturer, and based on the mechanics of the ubiquitous UH-1 Huey, the Cobra proved a huge success once introduced into combat with the US Army in 1966. Built as a key weapon in the Advanced Aerial Fire Support System concept of 1965, the AH-1 was one of the few aircraft to reach the combat zone after actual combat experience went into its design. The AH-1 helped reduce the losses being suffered by vulnerable troop transport helicopters by providing effective fire suppression during airmobile operations. This book explores its history, technology and crew.

Synopsis:

Bell's AH-I Cobra was the first dedicated helicopter gunship to reach frontline service anywhere in the world. It was one of the few aircraft ever to have combat experience incorporated into its design before it even reached the combat zone. This book reveals how the machine helped reduce American losses in Vietnam.

Synopsis:

The US Army AH-1 was the world's first purpose-built attack helicopter, and was used by the US Army in the Vietnam War. This manual discusses the history, technology and crew of the AH-1, and includes first-hand accounts, archival footage and scale plans of all major US Army AH-1 variants.
