AIR COMBAT

The development of air mobile infantry created a need for helicopter gunships to protect the air cavalry. This DVD traces the evolution of the helicopter gunship from the AH-1 Cobra during the Vietnam War to the Apache that was deployed in the 1st & 2nd Gulf Wars.

Air mobile infantry revolutionized the speed and range in which infantry units could be deployed. Utilizing helicopters, air-assault units focus on seizing and holding key terrain that has not been fully secured, and are used to directly engage enemy forces.
