RAAF acquired eight Bell Iroquois UH-1B Huey helicopters in 1961. A unique version of the ubiquitous UH-1B Huey helicopter (in Australia identified as 'Bushranger') was converted to gunships by 9 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force during the Vietnam War.

9 Squadron's role was to support the First Australian Task Force (1ATF) in seeking out and destroying the Viet Cong. 1ATF consisted of infantry battalions plus support troops-engineers, signals, artillery, armoured and medical. The Bushranger provided the RAAF with the firepower to escort their medical evacuation operations, along with the ability to directly support the infantry; many soldiers, not only Australians, owe their lives to the bravery of the Huey crews.

Armed with two fixed forward-firing M134 7.62 mm miniguns and a 7-round rocket pod on each side. In addition, the aircrew was armed with twin M60 flexible mounts in each door. The helicopters featured a simple and very effective air weapons system created through typical Australian ingenuity. The last of the Huey helicopters were retired on 21 September 2007.
