Abstract:

The past year has been one of marked change in the nature and intensity of the war in Vietnam. Significant events have been the continued phased reduction of USARV Aviation assets in conjunction with the drawdown of US Military Forces, the low level of friendly and enemy activity from 1 July 1971 until 30 March 1972, the invasion of South Vietnam by the NVA, and lastly the introduction of sophisticated weaponry and its subsequent effects on USARV Aviation assets. The invasion has again proven the efficacy of the airmobility concept and the ability of the helicopter and its crew to survive in a dense and sophisticated air defense environment. Author
