Hs-7 Dusty Dogs Sikorsky H-34 Model,HS-7 Dusty Dogs Sikorsky H-34 Fly with the HS-7 Dusty Dogs in this H-34 model,Each piece is carefully crafted from wood and hand painted to provide a unique piece youll treasure,16 inches Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron SEVEN The name of this squadron can be a bit confusing,based on the,HS-7 Dusty Dogs Sikorsky H-34,Fly with the HS-7 Dusty Dogs in this H-34 model,Each piece is carefully crafted from wood and hand painted to provide a unique piece you'll treasure,16 inches,Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron SEVEN,The name of this squadron can be a bit confusing,based on the reference used,Early references called the squadron the Big Dippers,based on the fact that the primary antisubmarine sensor used on board the helicopter was a dipping sonar,back then a relatively new device,The squadron emblem and patch displayed a seven star big dipper constellation,What is certain is that for most of the its existence HS-7 was called the Shamrocks,Although the name was the Shamrocks,the radio callsign used,at least through much of the 1980s,was Dusty Dog,For example,if the individual helicopter being flown on a mission was number 610,the radio callsign would be Dusty Dog 610,often simply Dusty 610,At some point,perhaps in the late 1990s,it appears that HS-7 adopted the Dusty Dog name as its official name,Cheers,Dave Powers,In January 2008,HS-7 was scheduled to become Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron SEVEN,HSC-7,The change took effect in 2011,Completed a deployment -
