From the famous anti-submarine helicopter HSS-1 "Seabat" by the American Sikorsky, produced since the mid-1950s, a version dedicated to carrying out tactical transport missions was developed a few years later: the HUS-1 Seahorse. The helicopter was widely used, starting from 1957, by the Marine Corps and proved immediately reliable and robust. It could carry up to 16 fully equipped men or 1,300 kg of load. Thanks to its Wright R-1820 Cyclone piston engine, the Seahorse could reach a speed of 200 km / h. Its operational characteristics accelerated its spread. Also used by the US Army (with the initials H-34), a version armed with 7.62 mm M60 machine guns was made. widely used during the first phase of the Vietnam War.
