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 has still seen service in the US military even when more advanced helicopters such as the UH-60 Blackhawk became operational. At first the specifications that the military was looking for was a new general utility helicopter with the focus on medical operations in the field. In action, the Huey could adapt many different 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 called the Bell 204/205.

In 1998, the US military dispatched a team of scientists and soldiers to Central America due to a series of strange incidents that had just recently occurred in the region. Operating in Panama and then in Jamaica, and using a mix of cars and helicopters, mostly UH-1 Iroquois, the search teams covered a lot of ground in their attempt to track to large number of enormously large footprints, which was at the present time their only clue. Soon though, the perpetrator of the strange incidents, an enormous lizard-like creature called Godzilla, appeared in New York. After the monster suddenly disappeared, scores of helicopters, among them the UH-1s attempted to search for Godzilla but what they did not know was that he had disappeared underground. Other than that, they did not participate in any combat against Godzilla, leaving the burden of the battle to the more modern AH-64 Apaches.
