    I'm sorry if someone already post this... but this seems to be the secret helo involved in Abbottabad crash...According to the Army Times, the helicopter used by the Navy SEAL commandos should be a special version of the Blackhawk, code-named "Airwolf. " entities to amend another secret of the U.S. Army. This is the 'Technical Application Programs Office, the department that provides technical assistance to the Navy Seals

    This is a little too much OPSEC for me. Especially since I have never heard/seen of this thing before.

    It couldn't have been all that stealth and quiet... There was a local blogging about the rotary wing aircraft coming in for the op.

    Although Army Times is a very unofficial type of media, people can confuse it with official Government sponsorship in their stories and information put out.

    That first photo was made up on MilPhotos as a possible contender IIRC and it's not actually a confirmed design or anything. There's actually quite an interesting thread about it over there if anyone is interested.

    Yep; remember when the Army Times ran an article that it was time for Rumsfeld to go? That somehow got turned into, the "Army" wants Rumsfeld out... :-|:thumbsdown:

    I always thought the Army Times was an official publication until about tens minutes ago.
