Abstract : The purpose of the evaluation was to determine the suitability of the shelter, utility, tropical for use in the counterinsurgency environment of Vietnam as a UH-1 helicopter maintenance shelter. The UH-1 helicopter was used extensively in all areas of South Vietnam in counterinsurgency operations. Frequently, units were required to operate away from their permanent base, and aircraft maintenance was conducted in the field without adequate maintenance shelters. This problem was aggravated during the rainy season.
