The US-made reconnaissance/attack MD 500 helicopter was shown for the first time in Poland during the MSPO 2021, International Defense Industry Fair.
It is worth noting that the MD 500 series is an American family of light civilian and military helicopters. The MD 500 was developed from the Hughes 500, a civilian version of the US Army’s OH-6A Cayuse/Loach.
This light commercial helicopter can accommodate five passengers comfortably and is mainly used by the military, being very flexible and offering good all-round capabilities. Its other tasks include: direct air support, anti-tank, reconnaissance, surveillance, and light facilities.
