The Bell model 47 was one of the most famous light utility helicopters ever built. It was used for surveillance, training, ambulance and communications purposes. The Bell model 47 was produced continuously from 1946 to 1973, and in other countries through 1976. Produced in 20 different configuration, with model numbers ranging from A to T, the Bell model 47 was used in 40 countries. The combined total of commercial and military versions(H-13/HTL-4 Sioux)of this series was over 5,000. The H-13 Sioux was used for observation, reconnaissance and in the MedEvac role as a litter carrier in Korea, following initial fielding in 1951.
In the MedEvac role a cocoon-like stretcher pod could be mounted on each skid. The H-13 earned the nickname "Angel Mercy" for evacuating some 18,000 United Nation's casualties during the war.
The H-13 Sioux also could be armed with twin M37C.30Cal. machine guns or twin M60C 7.62mm machine guns.
