InformationEdit

The UH-60 is a transport helicopter used to transport troops into battle. It has a pilot, co-pilot, a crew chief (which operates one of the side guns), a door gunner and room for up to eleven troops - about a squad or two special operations squads.

It is armed with two 7.62 mm M134 miniguns mounted on the side doors for defence. The UH-60L FFAR variant replaces these miniguns with fin-folding aerial rocket launchers.

VariantsEdit

There are several variants of the UH-60.

MH-60SEdit

The MH-60S is a version used by the USMC in ArmA 2.

« The Knighthawk is the US Marine Corps' front-line utility helicopter used for transport roles, medical evacuation and even air support. It is capable of carrying 11 combat equipped soldiers and is armed with two M240D 7.62mm door-mounted machineguns. Easy to maintain in the field the Knighthawk performs well in all roles it finds itself in. »

UH-60LEdit

The UH-60L has a crew of three: a pilot, crew chief and door gunner. The crew chief and the door gunner each use M136 7.62mm miniguns mounted on both sides of the helicopter behind the pilot. The pilot of the UH-60 sits on the right in the cockpit.

In a mission it is mainly used to transport friendly troops. It sees little use in direct combat.

UH-60L FFAREdit

The UH-60L FFAR is a version of the UH-60L armed with Hydra 70 FFAR (Folding Fin Aerial Rocket) rocket pods. The crew is reduced to one, the pilot. The door miniguns have been removed to accommodate the Hydra 70 rocket pods; however the cargo capacity remains the same as the regular UH-60L.

It is normally used in game as a long range support platform providing support to friendly troops far away with the Hydra 70 rockets. The UH-60L FFAR is  also used to transport friendly troops when a normal UH-60L is not available.

UH-60MEdit

The UH-60M is operated under the US Army in ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead.

UH-60M MedevacEdit

The medical version of the UH-60M operated under the US Army in ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead.

TriviaEdit

The ArmA series' UH-60 is based off the real-world Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk - a four-bladed, twin-engine, medium-lift utility helicopter manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft [1]. The modern US Army squad size was designed such that all members can fit into one Black Hawk.
