UH-1Y Venom

Country of Origin: USA


The UH-1Y Venom is part of Bell's H-1 upgrade program for UH-1N and AH-1W helicopters in U.S. Marine Corps service. The Venom has 84 percent commonality of major components with the upgraded AH-1Z Viper.

Cost savings were estimated at $3 billion over the life of the program.
