No, it is US Army.  It was for a super quiet battlefield observation aircraft.  I would have to look it up.  But it was from the Vietnam conflict.

YO-3A. One of MANY programs my dad honchoed, while commanding CDC-AVN, during late VN war.

Thanks for the link CaptCav,

 

It was my turn to learn something new regarding RVN Army Aviation
