Description: The UH-60 utility tactical transport helicopters provide air assault, general support, medial evacuation, command and control, electronic warfare, and special operations support for the US Army and allied nations. They feature lightweight armor to counter small arms fire, as well as hardened and redundant sub-systems design for improved survivability. The UH-60 airframe has been designed to progressively crush on impact, protecting the crew and the passengers. The UH-60 helicopters provide improved mobility to ground forces, due to dramatic improvements in troop capacity and cargo lift capability compared to previous utility helicopters. UH-60s also enable rapid deployment of infantry troops throughout the battlefield. Up to 11 combat ready troops and a crew of 4 can be accommodated inside a UH-60 helicopter.

The UH-60 helicopter can accommodate external fuel tanks to achieve extended range, small caliber guns typically for self-defense, and even Hellfire anti-tank missiles, as well as other equipment. They can operate in almost any weather conditions even carrying a 105mm howitzer, its crew of 6-man, and up to 30 rounds of ammunition in just a single lift. It has been exported under the S-70 designation and more than 2,660 units have been produced to date. The US Army is the largest UH-60 operator with an estimated procurement of 1,725 UH-60A/L helicopters and more than 4,600 aircraft produced for domestic and foreign operators. The US Army expects to upgrade the majority of the fleet to the UH-60M standard by 2020.

The HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter is a derivative of proven UH-60 Blackhawk designed to provide search and rescue capability in support of downed aircrews or other isolated personnel in hostile territory. The HH-60G and MH-60G can perform missions other than war due to their versatility. These missions include civil search and rescue, emergency medical evacuation, disaster relief, international aid, counterdrug activities and NASA space shuttle support.

The Pave Hawk features a modified communications and navigation suite including GPS/INS/Doppler navigation, satellite communications, secure voice, and Have Quick communications. Night vision goggles, a FLIR, and automatic flight control system have been provided to the Pave Hawk for low-altitude, at night operations, as well as other refinements for all-weather operations. A retractable in-flight refueling probe and internal auxiliary fuel tanks allow extended range operations. Two side-mounted 7.62mm machine guns provide self-defense. Folding rotor blades and a 8,000 lbs hook enables carriage of external load and shipboard operations.

For improved survivability the Pave Hawk is equipped with a radar warning receiver, an infrared jammer, and chaff/flare countermeasure dispensing system. Its rescue equipment includes a hoist capable of lifting a 600 pound load from a hover height of 200 feet. The Pave Hawks provided combat search and rescue capability for coalition forces during operation Desert Storm in 1991, and operation Allied Force in 1999. It entered active service within the US Air Force in 1982. The US Army has a similar aircraft called the MH-60K. In early 2006 the US Air Force released that the HH-60G replacement, called the CSAR-X, was going to enter service by 2012.
