Overview
 
101 OV-1B were produced and they operated all over Vietnam. Some units were equipped with both the OV-1A and the OV-1B. They were intensively used in 1965 in Operation Tiger Claw, providing surveillance and air support along the Ho Chi Min Trail. They were also used with the B-52 strategic bomber and the AH-1 Cobra helicopter as a pathfinder. The enemy is said to have referred to the OV-1B as the 'Whispering Death' because of its extremely quiet turboprop engines. The OV-1B won a reputation of invulnerability so any Vietcong soldier who brought one down was recommended for a high decoration.
