Please disregard Halb's post. He has failed to identify an aircraft or a reason. Yes, it is required even if you deem it "obvious". Additionally Halb, please refrain from including SUVs, etc. in the future. This is 360 Degrees of AVIATION.

If God had wanted the army to fly, he would have made the sky brown.
If God meant man to fly, He'd have given us bigger wallets.
If God had meant for men to fly he would have made their bones hollow and not their heads.

The Piasecki H-21. It has a similar double rotor "tandem" layout as the Chinook and also both helicopters were supporting US troops in Vietnam during the war.
