Online news: The Ukrainian intelligence service claimed by publishing photos that the country's army is equipped with American U-60 helicopters known as "Black Hawk".
In the image published by the Ukrainian military intelligence service of the Black Hawk helicopter, we see this famous bird next to a Russian 24-mile Hynd.
This helicopter is at the disposal of the Defense Intelligence Unit of the Ukrainian Army, which is used in high-risk operations. In the meantime, a video of the flight of the Ukrainian black falcon has been circulated on the Internet, and its authenticity cannot be said with certainty.
The overall design of the helicopter seen in this image is very similar to the UH60A version. This two-engine, four-bladed helicopter is designed and manufactured by Sikorsky.
Blackhawk protective seats protect the pilot and co-pilot from attacks and hazards, and its external protective shield can withstand well against 23mm bullets.
Two General Electric T-700-GE-100 turboshaft engines bring the Black Hawk to a speed of 294 km/h.
This multipurpose helicopter is armed with M240 machine gun, M134 minigun and GAU-19/A heavy machine gun. Hydra rocket, Hellfire and Stinger missiles are among the ammunition that can be used in this famous helicopter.
The Black Hawk has a history of supporting special operations forces and is best known for its participation in US Army special forces operations.
