Lol yea, they're chinooks alright. The CH-53's are actually the US's largest helicopter transport in the inventory, they have a 73 foot large diameter main rotor and 20 foot diameter tail rotor.

The main rotor has 7 blades.

Shattered OUT...

Yep all correct ,tho from time to time you will see a USAF version of the
V-22 there also . Only 6, RAH-66 Built at this time (all are in West Palm Beach) .If we ever get out of Iraq ,and calm these Hurricane's down .
We may see the Commanche get started up again .

I don't think it's the USAF version of the Osprey. They just accepted their first one a couple of days ago.

BlueAngel (the man ) What happened was ,A year ago last april (so 17 months ago ) US Congress cut all money to the RAH-66 (Because of the
cost of the Iraq War ) Vertol now throws up.

In February 2004, the US Army announced that it plans to cancel further research, development and planned purchases of the RAH-66 Comanche stealth helicopter. It considers that the helicopter will not meet the requirements of changing operational environments. An amendment to Congress will be submitted for the 2005 budget request that would allow the Army to terminate the Comanche program and reallocate funds to restructure Army aviation programs. The Army plans to buy approximately 800 more aircraft and upgrade another 400 with the diverted Comanche funds.

Those are definately helicopters.

V-22


CH-53



Nothing but a bunch of CH-53s a Little Bird or two, and some CH-46/47s.
