Except your theory only has two helicopters as part of the operation. When, in fact, there were a total of four.

Im sorry, but this reply does not fit my question.
I wish to know where these were built or tested.

My guesses are above in my original post.

Anymore thoughts?

There are already numerous topics on this. I believe this was the original one www.abovetopsecret.com...

Why can't you just post your question there?

Here are a couple:


Osama bin Laden's final night began with a group of four helicopters slicing through the night skies over Pakistan, making their way toward Islamabad from a U.S. base in northern Afghanistan.

www.time.com...




ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan — Four helicopters swooped in early Monday and killed Osama bin Laden in a fiery American raid on his fortress-like compound in a Pakistani town that is home to three army regiments.

There are many more sources. Just Google "Bin Laden Four Helicopters"

Thank you maybe i should have looked a little deeper into this it would make sense to bring back up. but i thought it was just too top secret and they would only use enough to get the job done

Guys...come on....Your not answering my question.

I would wish to know where did these stealth modified choppers built?

Was it Groom Lake, Palmdale, or Edwards? Or, maybe at the TNX test base?

I have been doing some digging on this but so far all I know is that it looks like it was being tested in Groom lake in the 1990s under the code name T.E.K standing for Test and Evaluation Project K. Backed up by the F117 and B2 was codenamed TEB. www.globalsecurity.org... and after an incident called Cheonan the Navy requested to buy 8 multi helicopters under the code name MH-X project. www.globalsecurity.org... here's an article on the Cheonan incident for those that don't remember. sitrep.globalsecurity.org...

That is all I have found so far.

I imagine they were "built" all over the place. Boeing undoubtedly machined some parts, which probably took place in Washington state. General Electric probably built the motors. If the basic design differed much from the original UH-60, the body was probably mostly done in California. Probably put together/tested/outfitted in Utah or Nevada.

Clues you say?
You haven't provided any clues, you have simply posted a list of places.
The "stealth version" of the BlackHawk is still unconfirmed.

Although for me it does prove one thing. The US Military has toys which we have no clue exist. This was just an unlucky accident for them that we got to see part of one.

Agreed.
But being tested is another thread.
ps
LSW1, did you ever join the wizards after work at In-and-out burger?

there is many manufacturers involved that supply pieces right down to (for example) PCB component level that are shipped to be assembled elsewhere. birds like this that have to handle the wide range of temperatures from sub-arctic cold to scalding desert heat demand incredibly tight tolerances & high level of quality control and testing.

sub-assemblies of many sorts come from across the country. I can only guess there is a major assembly point but aircraft aren't exactly like an automobile assembly plant knocking out a long line of Camaros.

Well, of course they do.

Some of them are sort of gadgety but useless, some are pretty damned cool, others are the sort of thing you look at and say 'why in Thor's name is THAT classified?'.

One of my personal favorites was that camera ball thing you shot into/onto buildings with the big slingshot. Classified at the time, but useful and sort of unexpected.
