AH-1Z Attack Helo & UH-1Y Multi-Role Helo
Capable. Flexible. Multi-mission. The ultimate in attack helicopters. The powerful AH-1Z delivers state of the art dynamics, weapons and avionics to incorporate the latest in survivability. With anti-armor capability, it engages and defeats the broadest array of threats at standoff ranges that defy imagination. The legendary Bell UH made better, that's the Bell UH-1Y. It has all the effectiveness, safety and reliability of the original UH. Like its predecessor it operates in the most extreme environments, from Arctic cold to desert heat. But the UH-1Y is an upgrade from the legend. Bell Helicopter has incorporated the latest aerospace technology into the UH-1Y, outfitting it with airframe improvements, twin General Electric T700 engines, an ultramodern glass cockpit and many more advanced systems. The original Bell UH set a very high standard. The Bell UH-1Y sets that standard even higher.
