The Kaman HH-43 Huskie was a helicopter with intermeshing rotors used by the United States Air Force, the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps from the 1950s until the 1970s. It was primarily used for aircraft firefighting and rescue in the close vicinity of air bases, but was later used as a short range overland search and rescue aircraft during the Vietnam War. Under the aircraft designation system used by the U.S. Navy pre-1962, Navy and U.S. Marine Corps versions were originally designated as the HTK, HOK or HUK, for their use as training, observation or utility aircraft, respectively.

More info:

The Kaman HH-43 Huskie was a helicopter with intermeshing rotors that was used by the US military for firefighting and rescue missions from the 1950s to the 1970s. The Huskie had a unique design that eliminated the need for a tail rotor and allowed it to hover and maneuver in tight spaces. The Huskie was powered by a piston engine or a turboshaft engine, depending on the model. The Huskie was deployed in various locations around the world, including Vietnam, where it performed search and rescue operations under the call sign “Pedro”. The Huskie was eventually replaced by newer helicopters, but it remains a remarkable example of innovation and versatility in aviation history.
