H-60s Convertible to Gunships

Not that I see us doing this any time soon, but if we ever decide we need to arm our H-60s against smaller targets such as fast inshore attack craft, it looks like it might not be too difficult.

The APKWS guided 70 mm rockets and Hellfire systems that are included in the program,appear appropriate for countering small vessels.

One thought on “H-60s Convertible to Gunships

  1. A good idea, especially since the USN doesn’t have enough gunshhips per se. Their SeaHawks are planned as convertible which means ship attack weapons may NOT be on them when needed~
