One of the most famous helicopters in the world, the UH-1B Huey (also known as the Iroquois) in has seen intense combat action starting in the Vietnam War and to this day although by then, the United States had mostly retired it from frontline service. The Huey could adapt to main roles such as transportation, reconnaissance, as well as combat. The United States also developed a version of the helicopter for use in the civilian sector.

Like many other nations, Japanese bought the UH-1B for its own use and they served in the different branches of the Japanese Self Defense Force in times of peace and in a time of war when Godzilla reappeared in 1984 after a 30 year absence. During the fighting with Godzilla and the other kaiju, they mainly acted in a transportation and reconnaissance role although on some occasions they did see combat, mainly with the naval forces of Japan. In that capacity, they provided air cover for Japanese warships as they tried to protect the seas around Japan from kaiju threats such as Godzilla and Mothra.

The UH-1B Huey would serve in the crisis dealing with Godzilla from its beginning to its end.
