  Corgi Aviation Archive AA37604: Sikorsky CH-34C Choctaw #43026 in the livery of the 7th TG, US Army based at Fort Eustis, VA, 1966. Limited edition of only 1,510 pieces.

The Sikorsky H-34 Choctaw (also known as the Sikorsky S-58) was a helicopter originally designed for the US Navy for service in the antisubmarine warfare (ASW) role. It was developed from the Sikorsky UH-19 Chickasaw. It is a utility transport helicopter, with no armament onboard. It was powered by a single Wright R-1820- 84 radial engine, and could carry 1216 troops, or eight stretcher cases if utilized in the MedEvac role. The aircraft first flew on March 8, 1954. It was initially designated HSS Seabat by the Navy and HUS Seahorse by the US Marines. In 1962 all services adopted the US Army designation, H-34 Choctaw. In 1962, under the new unified system, the Seabat was redesignated H-34, the Seahorse as the UH-34 and the Choctaw as the CH-34.

Designed by Sikorsky as a US Navy anti-submarine military helicopter, the CH-34 Choctaw first flew on March 8, 1954. This prolific aircraft saw action in Vietnam and is one of history's most successful helicopters, flown on every continent with the armed forces of 25 nations. It has served in an anti-submarine role, as VIP transport, for troop and utility transport and as a search and rescue vehicle. Under various designations, Choctaws have been operated by the US Marine Corps, the US Navy, the US Army and the coast guard. The type also served with the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force as the turbine-engined Wessex.
