I heard somebody talking about a new version of the Huey helicopter called

Yes and yes.

glass cockpit.....

I don't think so. It may include some avionics upgrades, but it does not
result in a "glass cockpit", from what I have read. That is a pretty major
upgrade in and of itself.

A fully integrated, night vision goggle (NVG) compatible “glass” cockpit,
maximizes situational awareness, by easily delivering critical navigation,
threat, communications, and aircraft system data to the crew.

Nice try. That ain't the Huey II it is talking about, however--it is the
UH-1Y, a different USMC program to update their own UH-1's. Huey II is a bit
less ambitious program; new engine, new transmission and rotor, and possibly
some limited avionics upgrades (depends on which source you are reading).
