AH-56 Cheyenne Attack Helicopters Kick Soviet Butt in 1970

See Godless hordes of communist tanks sweeping through Fulda and Hof! See them repelled by two American and two German Corps! Equipped with AH-56 Cheyenne, AH-1 Cobras, OH-6A’s, UH-1s, M60A1s and M551 Sheridans, we will prevail, fueled by our spirit, and by the purity of our precious..bodily….fluids. MS Media Player, 28 minutes, free. Download and view at your leisure. Mix a drink first for maximum enjoyment….

"Employment of Attack Helicopters to Defeat Armor Threat in Europe in the Mid-1970’s (U) "- That’s a mouthful! Cold War-era film made in 1970 on how we were going to defend against those Communists (28-minutes)

This is a very entertaining film. The AH-56 Cheyenne was somewhat of a predecessor to the AH-64 Apache, that was canceled due to its high cost and competition from the Air Force’s A-10 Thunderbolt II. It was much faster than the AH-64, being capable of 277 mph.
