Boeing CH-47 Chinook   19.75"   12"

The CH-47D has seen wide use in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq. The Chinook is being used in air assault missions, inserting troops into fire bases and later bringing food, water, and ammunition. In combat theaters, it is typically escorted by attack helicopters like the AH-64 Apache for protection. Its lift capacity has been found of particular value in the mountainous terrain of Afghanistan where high altitudes and temperatures limit the use of helicopters such as UH-60 Black Hawk; reportedly, one Chinook can replace up to five UH-60s in the air assault transport role. Despite the age of the Chinook, it is still in heavy demand, in part due its proven versatility and ability to operate in demanding environments such as Afghanistan.

Boeing CH-47 Chinook

Designed as a turbine-powered replacement for the CH-37 Mojave, the CH-47 was first flown on September 21st, 1961. This iconic helicopter has had a long service history, seeing action in many different wars, from Vietnam to Afghanistan. The Chinook is the U.S. Army's heaviest-lifting helicopter, primarily serving as a troop transporter, with secondary roles including artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. It has a crew of three and can move 55 combat-ready troops. Its wide-loading ramp can be opened in-flight for paratroopers, and three cargo hooks can extend through a floor hatch, which allows the Chinook to be used as a flying crane.
