The Hogs validated the concept of helicopter gunships leading Bell to design a purpose-built gunship version. The US Army turned them down in favour of a planned heavy gunship that could do just about everything. The unworkable complexity of their design and the accelerating war in Vietnam changed their mind forcing them to accept the lightweight Bell design as the AH-1G Hueycobra.
