The 170th Assault Helicopter Company was formed for Vietnam Service at Fort Benning in September 1965 and arrived in Vietnam on the 22 December, just three months later.

With two platoons (Gunships named the Buccaneers) the Unit's 1st Platoon was named 'Bikini Blue' and the 2nd Platoon, 'Bikini Red'. Taking the name BIKINI on early in 1966 this patch design not used until mid 1967 when the unit had already joined the 52nd Aviation Battalion. The patch depicts the 'Flying Dragon' mascot of the 52nd and 'Little Annie Fannie' a famous Playboy cartoon strip of the time wearing a Blue and Red Bikini in recognition of the Flight Platoons.

The Unit was based variously at Qui Nhon, Camp Holloway, Pleiku and Tay Ninh. For the latter period of their time in Vietnam the BIKINI's were responsible for the transport of MACV-SOG Recon Teams into and out of combat mission areas and during their period of service with the US Special Forces the Company awarded 2 Unit Presidential Citations.

The Unit was deactivated on the 16th of March 1971 with their departure from Vietnam.
