Bell Helicopter Textron UH-1 Iroquois, commonly known as the "Huey", is a multipurpose military helicopter, famous for its use in the Vietnam War. The initial designation of HU-1 (helicopter utility) led to its nickname, Huey. The UH-1 was developed as an effect of US Army trials with the Bell Model 204. In 1955 the U.S. Army awarded Bell a contract to develop the next generation turbine-powered helicopter, designated the XH-40 (renamed the Model 204). The first XH-40 flew on October 22, 1956. Bell believed the YH-40 was ideal for troop transport and cargo carrying as well as the medevac role. It was first used by the military in 1959 and went into production in 1962 as the UH-1.The official U.S. Army designation Iroquois (Army helicopters are traditionally given Native American names) was almost never used in practice.
