Bell 209 ah-1 cobra

The AH-1 HueyCobra, the first true gunship put into production, rushed into service during the Vietnam War and remained the backbone of the US Army attack helicopter fleet until it was replaced by the AH-64 Apache during the 1980s.

A twin engine variant, known as the Sea Cobra, was soon adopted by the USMC too and as of 2010, remains in production in the far more sophisticated AH-1Z variant.
