Helicopters/VTOLS (Transport and Cargo roles)
R-4 / Hoverfly
The U/AV-17 Hawk is a US VTOL combat transport and light armor. When delivering soldiers, the Hawk swivels its rotors to direct downwash away from the jump doors. This allows soldiers to fast-rope down while under cover of the .30 caliber door guns. Once its cargo is away, the Hawk's versatility means it can loiter to offer tactical support or quickly return to be loaded for another deployment.

Stinson L-5 Sentinel
Capable of operating from short unimproved airstrips, the L-5 "Sentinel" delivered personnel, critical intelligence and needed supplies to the front line troops. On return flights, wounded soldiers were often evacuated to rear area field hospitals for medical treatment, providing a huge boost to the morale of combat troops fighting in remote areas. L-5's were used for many other important activities, such as aerial photography, controlling vehicle convoys, para-dropping food, medical supplies and ammunition, laying communication wire, distributing propaganda leaflets, spraying pesticide, transporting prisoners, and directing fighter-bombers to ground targets. The L-5 was also popular with Generals and other high-ranking officers for fast, efficient short-range transportation.
