Not sure if it's related, but "slam, drop and Go" was the doctrine developed for the UH1's, and it was very much in effect when I was in.

Other than the "guns" your task was to shit troopies and rtb for more.  My job was "shooting at everything that looked offensive".

(other than the helicopter, that is).

Not sure if Mi-24s are supposed to rtb after delivering troops, as it was "flying IFV" in concept.

 

Also.

Now here's one I wouldn't have called. Boeing/Leonardo won the Huey Replacement contract with the AW139.  MH-139 will be the designation for it, apparently.
