This chapter covers helicopter (rotary-wing) aircraft. There are a large number of helicopters covered since nearly all countries have them in their inventory.
Helicopters have been grouped together in this chapter because, with the exception of a few attack helicopters, most can be used in a variety of roles: attack, observation, heavy lift, cargo, transport, and surveillance.
There are many helicopter configurations. Only a few helicopters are similar in appearance and the differences make recognition of them easier for an observer.
For each aircraft, there are line drawings, general data, WEFT descriptions, user countries, photographs, and aircraft manufacturer information. The following illustration shows helicopter aircraft WEFT description features. Line drawings are not to scale.
