  1967-69 - UH-1C "Stinger 236"  The "Stingers" flew UH-1B and -1C model gunships. The Stingers used the color red to identify their platoon. This C model gunship carried a red roof stripe, red skid markings, red tailplane outer edges, red tail leading edge, and red tail boom rear end. In contrast to the 116th lift platoon practice, a five-digit a/c number was painted in black on the tail. Stinger 236 was armed with the M157 rocket launcher system.
