Abstract:

Presently, two airframes, the UH-1N Huey and the AH-1W Super Cobra, are combined into composite Marine light attack helicopter squadrons HMLAs. With the introduction of the UH- 1Y, the Marine Corps must reconsider the composition of the HMLA. In order to implement the lessons learned from Viet Nam, maximize training during high operational tempo, and enable effective task organization for the MAGTF Commander, the HMLA must be decomposed.
