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

Background

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

After the war the Allies decommissioned them in favor of the newer Nighthawk transport. The Soviets did not utilize air transports until the Twinblade was used in the Third World War's third iteration.
