I Want This Helicopter!

UPDATE:

Sorry, folks. Thanks to a tip from FOTM co-founder Steve, I just discovered that this is NOT an American helicopter. It’s a specially painted Mi-24 Hind helicopter in the Hungarian Air Force, which was not intended to be used in military operations and thus carried no armaments. It is strictly used for display in air shows, etc. [Source: Snopes]
I still think it’s awesome!

I ‘think’ the Gatling-type machine guns were commonly known as Vulcan “mini-guns” Lots of the Vietnam-era attack helos carried rocket launcher pods, too.
Irregardless-I’ll take two of those fantastic looking helos please whilst they’re still cheap! LOL!
