Development[edit | edit source]
The UH-10 Buckler is a small and agile utilitarian helicopter, mainly tasked with transporting troops from and to the battlefield. Like the AH-4D, the helicopter embodies an attempt to create a superior version of its externally designed predecessors. It can carry a maximum of 5 passengers, and can be fitted with up to two side-mounted 50cal machine guns, operated by the door gunners. It is equipped with a short range radar system, capable of picking up on the subtle signature of enemy foot soldiers. On some occasions, the UH-10 has been fitted with some light fixed weapons for attacking ground targets, though that role is mostly reserved to the AH-4D broadsword.
