The UH-1H Huey is a military transport helicopter found in DayZ.

The UH-1H Huey has a cruise speed of 280 kilometers per hour. A faster speed can be obtained at the expense of altitude.

Its fuel tank capacity is 1000 liters[1] - equal to fifty Jerry Can (20L)s or 200 Fuelcan (5L)s.

The UH-1H Huey has a seating capacity of six players. It has a cargo capacity of twenty five items, five weapons and four backpacks.

The UH-1H Huey has an armament of two M240 machine guns mounted on its side doors. The Huey has some armor that is resistant to small arms fire. One of the Huey variants has an olive drab camouflage scheme and the other has a desert camo scheme.

If the player ejects from the UH-1H Huey at sufficient height their parachute will automatically open and they will slowly descend to the ground. If the pilot is kicked from the server while flying, they will appear on the ground below where they were kicked - the helicopter, without a pilot, will crash. However, in update 1.8 players can change seats while in the helicopter.

The UH-1H Huey has nine possible spawn locations throughout Chernarus. These are located at:[2]

  • Northwest Airfield, at the northern end at grid coordinates 042 046.
  • Chernogorsk, near the apartment buildings at grid coordinates 064 126.

  • Krasnostav, at the airstrip at grid coordinates 120 027.
  • Skalisty Island, north-western side of the island at grid coordinates 133 121.

As of update, the Huey's machine guns can now be rearmed/reloaded if a player is carrying M240 belts in their inventory.
