The MH-6 Little Bird is the military variant of the civilian OH-6 Cayuse, developed and manufactured by an American Aerospace Company called the McDonnell Douglas Helicopter Systems, a sub-company of the McDonnell Douglas which is the company behind the legendary F-15 Eagle and the F-18 Super Hornet.

Because all of its remarkable perks and the small fuselage, the helicopter was generally utilized for Special Operations and to date, it has a total of nine (9) variants including a special UAV variant.

Appearance in Medal of Honor Edit
The Little Birds appeared in the mission Shore Leave and acted as AH-6 and bombarded the building of the Al-Shabaab into debris.
The Little Birds made appearance again in the mission of Connect the Dots, acted as the insertion helicopter for Mako as MH-6, fire support as AH-6 and finally, the extraction helicopter at the end of the mission.
The AH-6 Little Bird is a Tier 3 Support Action for the Point Man class. It has the RQ-7 Shadow as the opposite Support Action. Calling in a Little Bird puts a respectable amount of Mini-Gun fire and rockets in-and-around the radius designated by your SOFLAM when you call in the strike. What distinguishes this from the Spec Ops A-10 Warthog strike is that, though the Little Bird doesn't drop as much ordinance as the A-10, it does come back for a second pass to mop up much of what it missed on the primary attack run.
