SA.316B Alouette III
Unit: Esquadron 94, FAP
Serial: 9306

Like in Guinea, the FAP deployed a large number of SA.316B Alouette III's in Angola, and used them for all possible purposes. All the helicopters of this type were operated by Esquadron 94 and were camouflage in overall green colour, similar to the US Army's 'Forrest Green', and wore only simple national markings and a four-digit serial (the example depicted here, 9306, was seen at Luanda IAP, together with a Fiat G.91R, in the late 1960s). The camouflage would soon be quite worn out to different shades of olive green due to the sun, sand and rain. In some operations also a piece of tarpauline with a large number 1, 2, 3, or 4 was applied on the lower window of the cockpit doors. Several Rhodesian and South African 'advisers' supported the Portuguese COIN operations, but these never succeeded in goading the Portuguese into employing some of effective Rhodesian combat tactics.

SA.316B Alouette III
Unit: FAP
Serial: 9339

The versatile SA.316B Alouette III bore the brunt of Portuguese COIN wars in Africa: it could be said that the Portuguese operations in Guinea, Mozambique and Angola were 'helicopter-oriented'. Wherever the ground troops were sent, the helicopters led or transported them, flew reconnaissance and liaison, CASEVAC/MEDEVAC and other missions.
