Helicopters are one of the youngest types of fighting equipment. The history of the military helicopter barely exceeded half a century. Although, the nearest relative of the helicopter - an autogyro (hybrid piston aircraft and helicopter) was created a little earlier and its individual types were used since the beginning of World War II. Rapid development of helicopter industry gained in the post-war period, when helicopters were increasingly used in colonial conflicts of the second half of the twentieth century.At the same time, the main directions for using helicopters were determined: agriculture, medicine, transportation of oversized cargo in hard-to-reach areas, and for the military: the solution of transport-landing and anti-tank tasks. Helicopters plastic model kits for gluing are produced in various scales and look good next to models of military equipment.
