The Chinook is an unarmed transport helicopter used by both the Allies and the Soviets during the Second World War.

Background[edit | edit source]

The Chinook is an unarmed, versatile, twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter. It saw extensive use during the Second World War by both sides as infantry transports and ordnance delivery units. Dubbed "flying APCs", they were capable of delivering infantry to any location on the battlefield and evacuate vital personnel, such as doctor Albert Einstein.

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

After the war the Allies discommissioned them in favor of the newer Nighthawk transport. The Soviets lost theirs along with most of their airpower as a penalty of losing the war and have not had a transport plane until the Twinblade in the War of the Three Powers
