The "Black Helicopters" are generally Sikorsky Black Hawks, which are the most common military copter in the US. These are devoid of any external
markings, which lend to use for SpecOps, DEA, CIA/DIA, and many other applications. They are in fact used by the Blue Berret Crash Retrieval
Taskforce, although they are used in that role specifically so that they cannot be told apart from any other covert agency using them.
As far as shooting one down, that would be a VERY bad idea... There is likely at least an M-60 machine gun on board each one, and they wouldnt
hesitate to return fire. At the very least, each crew member will be armed. Not to mention the fact that shooting at a government aircraft is a
felony, and they can easily track you if you do shoot at them (they are equipped with FLIR, as well as all kinds of other sensing equipment.)
