American latest HH-60W helicopter for MTR went into series

The promising HH-60W helicopter, developed by Lockheed Martin for combat rescue operations by MTR forces in the territory controlled by the enemy, went into series. The serial production decision was made after four HH-60W samples spent a total of 150 hours in the air.


American latest HH-60W helicopter for MTR went into series


The new American HH-60W helicopter for rescue operations was developed to replace the obsolete HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters, which were put into service at the beginning of the 1980's. The purpose of such helicopters is rescue operations in the territory controlled by the enemy, as well as search and rescue operations, medical transportation and the fight against drug trafficking.

The new helicopter was developed since 2012, it received increased fuel tanks, updated on-board equipment and secure communication systems. The machine, developed on the basis of the multi-purpose UH-60M with an electro-remote control system, also received an expanded range of weapons.

The US Air Force plans to acquire 113 new helicopters, which will replace the HH-60G as they become available. By the end of this year, Lockheed Martindo intends to deliver the first 10 new helicopters. Serial production is carried out at the Sikorsky company (Lockheed Martin division since 2015) in Stratford, Connecticut.

The beginning of flight tests of promising new helicopters was reported in May this year.

The MH-60G Pave Hawk multi-purpose helicopter, which was previously in service with the US MTR, was created by the American company Sikorsky Aircraft on the basis of the UH-60 Black Hawk multi-purpose helicopter. The helicopter in the MTR is jokingly called the "911 rescue team." He is able to reach speeds of up to 224 kilometers per hour and fly at distances up to 600 kilometers. The machines are armed with two 7,62 millimeter machine guns and two 12,7 millimeter machine guns. Helicopters are equipped with electronic suppression systems, thermal imagers, protected communication systems.

    Also, the American is not fast on time - from 2012 to 2019 he was developing. Another thing is that they make even highly specialized turntables and a rather big batch. Our rescue teams are still flying on the "twilight"

      Wonderful helicopter - figure eight. This is all recognized. And there is the 24th. It can also. But they don’t have that!

        Eight is a bus. And the Black Hawk is a special forces vehicle.

          You are here to be careful with the definitions, an Israeli fan of the technique of his Yankees breadwinners. Mi-8 is a versatile machine. It is universally recognized. Starting from the usual transport old man Mi-8 carrier shift workers and reindeer herders to crafts and camps and ending with the multifunctional Mi-8AMShT. Which and the special forces will deliver and gouges the tank column. Well, one doesn’t need to lick intimate places so popularly with their patrons. negative

              Yes, I’m calm. It’s you, the Israeli gang, together with the “professor” and “soldier-wow” who are trying to prove to everyone the superiority of your breadwinners' technique over everyone in the world.

      And to what height does this pepelats fly?
      Mi-8 just shows itself in the mountains as a reference - more precisely, all helicopters in the mountains are compared with Mi-8, as with a standard ....

        I fully support lucul. according to the RLE, the static ceiling mi-8mtv-1 with a take-off weight of 11100 kg under ISA conditions with the ROM turned off is 3980 m.
        the same is true for mi-8mtv-5. by and large, only the mass of an empty helicopter is greater than that of a unit.

      In my opinion, this is just a modernization.

      Curious helicopter. It seems that a lifeguard is his second profession.

      What is there that is curious? Doors set? It seems that the evacuation of terrorists from the environment is his only purpose ...

        Only here with the last column the problem is in the motor
        August 15, 2013 a record was set for raising the helicopter to the maximum flight height with a Mi-8MSB helicopter with TV3-117VMA-SBM1V 4E series engines, which rose to a height of 9150 meters

        The TVZ-117VMA-SBM1V engine was upgraded from TVZ-117 by the Ukrainian company Motor Sich. He went through a full cycle of state tests and received an international certificate of the type ST267-AMD, which Tatyana Anodina, Chairman of the Interstate Aviation Committee, personally handed to Vyacheslav Boguslaev, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Motor Sich. The Ukrainian engine meets the most stringent international requirements, is trouble-free in high altitude conditions, which means rarefied air, and high-low temperature extremes

        The purpose of such helicopters is rescue operations on the territory, ... and the fight against drug trafficking.
        They will be exporting heroin from Afghanistan, but don’t get too long on donkeys.

      Several times there was information that the Americans have already tested and are almost ready to manufacture a helicopter with a cruising speed of 400 km / h Why buy a decent batch of helicopters with "outdated" performance characteristics. Or with new developments, not everything is as good as they assure us.

        If you are talking about the S-92, then this is a completely different class of aircraft that has never been used in US aviation. In a hundred cases out of a hundred, this suggests that ahead - 5-10 years of eliminating "childhood diseases". Or more than 10 years - take a look at the Osprey, which is also a “new LA class.”
        And while childhood diseases are cured, on which all these years must be flown.

    Curious helicopter. It seems that a lifeguard is his second profession. With a wide range of weapons, he is more likely to become a drummer.

      The width of the range of weapons is limited, including suspension points. On this helicopter, not seeing enough places to accommodate so many weapons so that he could become a drummer. This is at least.
      Or am I wrong?

      It is shock-transport. He will never become a pure shock, he is simply not intended for this.

        There is such a version of the MH-60L DAP, here it is imprisoned for striking and is not intended for transportation of troops.
