That rear shot kinda looks like a sea bass.
Classic ramp droop!

Its bad to show up to a ramp which has settled to the ground and the grunts have had a shopping foray inside your aircraft.

Fixed it for more realism.

I can't believe you just admitted to that!

I've accused probably hundreds of grunts of "Chinook-hysterical-theft-syndrome"
But out of of all my accusations, chewing the butts off half a thousand of them, standing so many soldiers at attention while I give them a significant hearing loss to at least one ear, after all of that, I have never gotten one to admit to the heinous crime.

You know, even the bible commands you not to steal from Chinooks!

Hey now.....i am gonna have to give my leg brother some back up here!

Bobby at no point admitted to any such thing!  All he did was seek clarification of the assumption/accusation that you were making towards him and his brethren....

Its not our fault that 15 series folks do not comprehend physical security!

I'm not saying that I have any knowledge of shiny things disappearing off aircraft. I'm just saying I've heard Pilots, well Aviation in general like to lose things and if it's laying around unsecured it's free.

There was a line in the movie Courage under Fire, something along the lines of " the best way to beat pilots at poker, is to distract pilots, to get them talking about their helicopters... pilots LOVE talking about their helicopters."

Just because aviation can't keep track of MREs and shiny things. Don't blame us simple grunts who have to secure your birds.

No words needed

But

I have a few for our enemies

You try it and this is what waits patiently to steal your life away when you least expect it. Prepare all you want. Build your fortifications. Pray to your God and ask his protection. Train, weapon up, and stand as strong as you can. It won't matter. We will kill you despite anything you can do.

It's something
From my experience whenever someone or an engineer contractor who had the commander's ear wanted to bolt something on the side, they would.

Funny but the performance charts do not take into account all that parasitic drag burnin' extra fuels that cause helikopters to sometimes run ah-might short on fuel. And everyone knows, the mission will always go just as planned, right? I mean if that Captain said his Rangers could clear that building in 10 minutes, why, they never run into a snag and take more time...All while we helikopters are ah-circlin' overhead, 400 miles away from our next sip o-fuel.
Ya, extra drag and oh, how about a ton or two of extra weight and just let us pilots make it all majically work out

Engineers...

Grunts...

Taxes...

Liberals...

My guess is an Active Denial System (ADS)... Fly over the BLM terrorists and shoot a few good rays at them... scatter like ants..

I honestly don't know why don't have thousands of them... roam the streets and if you see three black hoodies gathered together... Zapp... LOL Watch them run like they are on fire.

Service in the 160th is a calling only a few will answer for the mission is constantly demanding and hard. And when the impossible has been accomplished the only reward is another mission that no one else will try.

As a member of the Night Stalkers I am a tested volunteer seeking only to safeguard the honor and prestige of my country, by serving the elite Special Operations Soldiers of the United States. I pledge to maintain my body, mind and equipment in a constant state of readiness for I am a member of the fastest deployable Task Force in the world, ready to move at a moment’s notice anytime, anywhere, arriving time on target plus or minus 30 seconds.
I guard my unit’s mission with secrecy, for my only true ally is the night and the element of surprise. My manner is that of the Special Operations Quiet Professional, secrecy is a way of life. In battle, I eagerly meet the enemy for I volunteered to be up front where the fighting is hard. I fear no foe’s ability, nor underestimate his will to fight.

The mission and my precious cargo are my concern. I will never surrender. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy, and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country.

Gallantly will I show the world and the elite forces I support that a Night Stalker is a specially selected and well trained soldier.

I serve with the memory and pride of those who have gone before me for they loved to fight, fought to win and would rather die than quit.

Night Stalkers Don't Quit!

That came about during desert storm. We started shooting ammunition called "Slap"
You probably won't find out a whole lot about it
But the plastic sabots pouring out of the gun were collecting on the engine inlets...ya, not so good

So with 4000 rounds per second streaming out, we had to keep the junk out of the horsepower makers which kept the crews and Lycoming happy

I am somewhat familiar with the 30 cal sabot rounds. Good way to get a small hard projectile traveling at really high speed. Alas. Not for civvy use.

And of all the small caliber weapons not available to civilians the gattling has to be my favorite. Feeding it would be a different story. An entire weekend of reloading up in smoke in less than a minute.
