The Canadian Forces Bell CH-146 Griffon is a typical utility helicopter

A utility helicopter is a multi-purpose helicopter capable of fulfilling many different roles.

A utility military helicopter can fill roles such as ground attack, air assault, military logistics, CASEVAC, medical evacuation, command and control, and troop transport.[1] Some overlap of terminology is inevitable with transport helicopter.

Prominent examples of utility helicopters include the American Bell Huey family, Russian Mil Mi-2 series and the French Aérospatiale Alouette III.
