US Army 160th SOAR Night Stalkers, 2014

Boeing MH-47G Chinook   16.5"   10"

The Boeing MH-47G is the "Special Operations" variant of the Chinook. It has many of the features of the modern CH-47FF, but differs from its Sister model with the incorporation of combat systems designed to make the helicopter more survivable on missions deep into enemy territory, at night and while flying at low level. It is primarily used for the insertion, extraction and resupply of Special Forces troops while in service with the US Army Special Operations Aviation Command (USASOC). The first new-build MH-47G helicopter was delivered to the U.S. Army in September 2014.

Boeing MH-47G 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.
