[Video] Royal Jordanian Air Force AH-1F Cobra Helicopters

An interesting video filmed during recent military exercise shows the old AH-1F Cobra Helicopters at work in Jordan.

AH-1F Cobra are quite obsolete machines that have little in common with the more recent AH-1W SuperCobra and AH-1Z Viper of the U.S. Marine Corps.

That’s why the examples still flying with the Royal Jordanian Air Force are interesting.

The following video was filmed during Exercise Eager Tiger 2014, which brought together U.S. and Jordanian aircraft including U.S. and Royal Jordanian Air Force F-16s and U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18s.

The drills included also Special operations featuring Royal Jordanian Armed Forces AS332 Super Puma and UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters escorted by AH-1 Cobra attack choppers.
