The Blackhawk is a reliable USA transport helicopter, flown by aircrew assigned to General Thorn. Armed with a door-mounted minigun, it excels at engaging enemy personnel and light vehicles while relocating up to eight combat infantry.
The American Blackhawk has operated in many scenarios all over the globe and has proven time and time again it is an excellent transport helicopter. Not only can it sweep the landing zone clean, it can also lay down a barrage of covering fire for its passengers. The Blackhawk tactical transport helicopter is the army's unrequited quintessence of infantry insertion deep into enemy territory.
During the war on the GLA, the multifunctional Chinook helicopters had been used to this same end. However this unarmed and expensive helicopter sustained heavy losses to enemy RPGs and Stingers. With the Osprey being impractical due to the fact that it, too, is unarmed, the Blackhawk was uncovered and reassigned to the army of General Thorn to guarantee enemy inquietude. It mounts an anti infantry minigun and arrives with eight rangers ready for aerial insertion.
Order all Rangers inside the Blackhawk to rappel down onto the target. Can be used on garrisoned structures to clear it.
