The Bell AH-1 Cobra is recognized as the world's first "attack helicopter." Following it first flight in 1965, it went into service with the United States Marine Corps in 1967. More than 1,250 have been delivered. The Super Cobra is a twin-engine attack helicopter that is the core of the US Marine Corps attack helicopter fleet. The AH-1 Cobra has been used by the militaries of more than a dozen countries. More recent versions of the aircraft are equipped with a three-barreled Gatling gun plus rockets and missiles. Interesting fact: Although the aircraft can be flown from either seat, the front seat is primarily described as the co-pilot/weapons operator's position while the pilot occupies the rear, elevated, seat.
