The Bell 212 HP AH Mk1 derives from the Bell 205, the Huey UH-1.
The Bell 212 HP AH Mk1 was created by adding another engine to the single engine Huey and retaining the original teetering rotor system.
Army aviation operates a handful of Bell 212 helicopters, whose unique abilities include flying in hot and often humid conditions whilst also being able to carry considerable loads.
A winch on the side of the aircraft also enables medical evacuation in otherwise difficult terrain.
Consequently the Bell 212 is currently employed in predominantly jungle areas where its performance is a great advantage.
