Rhodesians and their use of the Alouette III.

The Aerospatiale Alouette III was initially designed as a Light Utility helicopter by the French Military. With a crew of two, and seating for five additional passengers, the Rhodesians had seen this helicopter as a workhorse aircraft that would be used to provide CAS, Aerial Observation, and MEDEVAC, while also doubling as mobile command posts. They would fit these aircraft into their venerable “Fire Force” roles, where Alouette III’s from the No. 7 Squadron would drop in RLI fire teams before guiding them to their targets when airborne again, often providing CAS during their orbits around the AO.
