Armored Heliborne Assault Marine Corps style! by Lance Cpl. Gabino Perez

Ok.  The title was click bait but I have to ask.  Has this capability ever been used in combat?  Have we even ever done an artillery helo-raid (did the Marines do it in Desert Storm...can't think of any other conflict where it was even a possibility)?

I can't even think of a reason to actually do it!  You'd be hazarding not only your gun crews but also the helicopters!  If you're gonna say ship to shore then I say this is pretty damn wasteful of resources.  Is this just one of those neat-O type things or does it have a practical application in the playbook?
