AH-1G Huey Cobra in Vietnam

The AH-1G or "Cobra", was the high performance attack helicopter in Vietnam. Although not officially sanctioned for such maneuvers, the photographer saw one pull a full loop down in the Delta. This one has the TAT-102 turret which house a single 7.62 mm minigun, visible below the nose in this picture. It also carried side pods for a variety of armaments from rockets to gatling guns.
