UH-1Y Venom

The UH-1Y Venom is one of the newest additions on the famous Bell Huey's "family" of helicopters.
Being the "brother" of the new AH-1Z SuperCobra/Viper, the UH-1Y's main user is the United States Marine Corps (just like the AH-1Z).

This helicopter was developed from the (now aged) UH-1N Twin Huey, and can be considered to be a major upgrade over the older Twin Huey's standards, this upgrade can be considered as a parallel with the upgrade the older AH-1W SuperCobra is currently undergoing (to be upgraded to the AH-1Z SuperCobra/Viper).




The main users for this helicopter in TAOW will be certain special units within the USMC and will be obviously used and deployed on naval maps.
It's main purpose is rapid, tactical and specialized transportation (so this helicopter can be considered to be the "Special Operations Transport Helicopter" of the USCM).
