|The UH-1C represents the third generation of Bells iroquois series. Of all Bells UH-1C machines, this was the most heavily armed. It carried an M-5 40mm grenade launcher on its nose and the M3 Rocket System. Each of the two M3 rocket pods carried twenty-four 2.75 inch rockets and the M-5 grenade launcher held over 300 antipersonnel grenades. Used extensively as escort for unarmed transport helicopters, the Heavy Hog was able to provide especially effective cover and offensive firepower during unloading and recovery operations. The UH-1C saw its combat tour through to the close of the vietnam Conflict, deadly to the enemy and essential to U.S. forces in its capacity as a most formidable gunship.|
