Looks like a UH-1B used for target representation of a Soviet aircraft, though there was already a UH-1H for that purpose, fitted with dummy gunner co.ckpit of the Mi-24 and fake armament pylons.

Nope, not a UH-1B.  I promise though that this one isn't some wierd variant you've never heard of.

Sorry, Echos were originally Marine helos, then they were transferred to the Navy as trainers.  No Army units ever flew Echos.  Last clue: that bird would have had a Lycoming T53-L13 engine by that time.  I think that info should be the clincher.  Sorry, I didn't think this one would be very hard.

OK, I'm gonna give you this one from back when you said it was a UH-1C.  I thought the bit about the T53-L13 wuld give it away, but I found this in your list 

"UH-1M Iroquois - US Army version fitted with Hughes Aircraft Iroquois night fighter and night tracker system to detect and acquire ground targets under low ambient lighting conditions. Three deployed with hunter-killer helicopter groups in Vietnam in 1970 to evaluate system."

The bird I posted is, in fact, a UH-1M.  The problem is that there is misinformation about what makes an M.  The Mike model was a UH-1C upgraded from the T53-L-11 engine to the T53 L-13 used on the UH-1H.  While it is true that all the INFANT (Iriquois Night Fighter and Night Tracker) birds were Mikes, it's not true that all Mikes are INFANT birds.  All, or nearly all, US Army UH-1Cs which remained in service into the 80's recieved the upgrade.  Specifically, the bird I posted is a UH-1M from White Sands Missile Range.  She was a drone as you can tell by the two white antennae (one on the roof and one off the center of the bottom of the tail boom).  I'm not sure if this one was used as a target or just as an OPFOR bird.  

On to you, Travis.

I'd say "Cierva W.11 Air Horse", although I do wonder where the tail fins have gone in your picture...

Nope.  It's not US (Was H-21 used for any foriegn variants) and there were only a few of this variant built.  The pic is from the web though so it can befound.
