The Huey is the iconic helicopter from the Vietnam War. From the day I started making KSP helicopters, I knew I’d try to make one some day, and here it is ! It’s one of my favorite helicopter because of it’s historic role and because it reminds me of many movies and video games. So fly it while listening to your favorite Vietnam War era music and enjoy the ride !
