The Bell AH-1 Cobra is a two-blade rotor, single-engine attack helicopter manufactured by Bell Helicopter. A member of the prolific Huey family, the AH-1 is also referred to as the HueyCobra or Snake.

It soon became clear that the unarmed troop helicopters were vulnerable against ground fire from Viet Cong and North Vietnamese troops, particularly in a landing zone. Without friendly support from artillery or ground forces, the only way to pacify a landing zone was with an aircraft that could closely escort the transport helicopters, and loiter over the landing zone as the battle progressed.

By 1962, the Cobra started to be seen escorting Slicks to their drop zones.
