Mexican Express On-the-Go

Vietnam — This is the UH-1C Shark "Mexican Express" with the XM-21 minigun system. The artwork is a yellow Mexican sombrero on a red background, with the word Mexican above the sombrero and the word Express below. It looks like the Shark is "drawing a bead" on the Dolphin slick as he's taking off. (Maybe the guy in the white shirt looked like VC to them...)
