UH-1Y Venom Attack Helicopter
The Bell UH-1Y Venom is an American military helicopter built by Bell Aircraft. It is intended to replace the Bell UH-1 Iroquois in the Marine Corps. Modernized version of the Twin Huey helicopters used by the Marines since the 1970s, this model has been refurbished and introduced in 2008. The main improvement is the installation of a four-bladed rotor instead of the two-blade of his predecessor. Composite fiber, it is designed to withstand multiple impacts directly by weapons of calibres up to 23 mm. The device also features turbines and improved transmission, upgraded avionics and electronics, with the addition of multifunctional LCD screens. Despite this, it retains 84% parts commonality with the combat helicopter AH-1Z. With these facilities, the UH-1Y has an increased payload of 125% compared to the UH-1N, a range increased 50%, greater cruising speed and reduced vibration the structure, improving stability of the apparatus. This aircraft is equipped with an infrared sensor type 3rd generation Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) produced by Lockheed Martin, also used on the AH-1Z Viper and KC-130J Harvest Hawk. This sensor guaranteed detection capability and target tracking in all weathers.
