Blackhawk

U.S. Soldiers and Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) cadets with the 1st Battalion, 125th Infantry Regiment, Rear Detachment conduct an air assault mission using a UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter at Camp Grayling, Mich., June 21, 2012. The Soldiers and ROTC cadets honed their infantry skills so they could integrate into their assigned rifle companies. The objective of the training was to allow the Soldiers to maintain their skills and for the officer cadets to lead combat patrols in a high-stress training environment.

  1. I’ve always thought the Blackhawk looked good and this picture confirms that. On a side note, I always thought the USMC should have bought the Blackhawk instead of pouring money into the Osprey. They could have had a proven workhorse and saved the taxpayers billions while making the DoD supply chain that much more efficient.

  2. Couldn’t agree more 11 bravo.

    They may try to make the Osprey look like it’s the perfect solution to every air assault situation but eventually they’ll find maintenance of these critter too expensive and the down time unacceptable.

    Bone yard here they come.
