Things like rockets and other armament were attached to the helicopter to make it more effective in battle.

Highly detailed and acurate model of the MD 500 Defender for Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
One of the world's most successful and useful light turbine helicopters, the Hughes/McDonnell Douglas/MD Helicopters 500 series began life as Hughes won the US Army observation helicopter contest with the YOH-6A Cayuse, which first flew in February 1963. The engineering and certification designation for all military and civil variants of this helicopter type is Hughes Model 369. It was offered in basic five and seven seat configurations.
In 1970 the 500C followed with a more powerful turboshaft. From 1976 deliveries were of the 500D, an improved version with again a more powerful engine, a T-tail, and new five blade main and optional four blade tail rotors. The 500D was followed by the 500E from 1982 with recontoured nose and various interior improvements including greater head and leg room.
From 1984, when McDonnell Douglas acquired Hughes Helicopters, the Hughes name disappeared and the 500E and 530F were built as the MD-500E and MD-530F Lifter. Military variants are marketed under the MD-500 Defender name.

"This to me is Nemeth's premier aircraft, and could easily be their flagship release. The dangling feet on the military models are just a small example of the quality throughout this aircraft. Tilt her left or right and you will see simple physics applied to their shifting bodies and dangling feet. Several different models and a great price. PERFECT for anyone wanting to simulate military operations, or for a very nice commuter helo. Get this package now if you don't have it. HIGHLY recommended. " - FlightSim
