The sturdy Sentinel proved it’s worth on the battle field during both World War II and the Korean conflict in such varied capacities as: delivering personnel to, and the wounded from, the battle field, aerial photography, controlling vehicle convoys, para-dropping food, supplies and ammunition, laying communication wire, distributing propaganda leaflets, spraying pesticide, transporting prisoners and directing fighter-bombers to ground targets.
