War helicopters are a stellar symbol of aviation, rescue, and warfare in our time. These aircrafts are of many designs and designations. Some pierce the cloudy sky with their rotors and blazing guns. Some others we’ve seen in films coming at the screen at top speed to rescue troops, a lost member of the crew, or to transport civilians out of harm’s way.
The US Army tends to categorize their military helicopters into two main types: attack helicopters and transport helicopters. Attack helicopters, of course, shoot missiles (and much more) on specific targets, fired by warrior pilots strapped inside a shiny glass cockpit. These helicopter fleets are also used in support of the infantry corps of army and to guard valuable assets for the two other modern warfare military domains, namely navy and air force.
On the other hand, transport helicopters are used for carrying cargo from a base to a drop zone, and are not used only in war time.
However, other types of helis include observation helicopters, such as those used by government institutions to observe, and report on, weather, and Maritime patrol helicopters, which truly save lives in the ocean when sailors get stranded or ships get destroyed in storms.
