Hey folks,
I am in a portion of a chapter where I have a mixed flight from 160th SOAR about to execute a mission.

The question is this.
Are the following birds the current platforms?
1. MH-60 DAP
2. MH-47G
3. MH-6

I just want to be sure, as always.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

They use a variety of flavors of the "basic" MH-60/MH-47/MH-6 airframes. I think the vast majority of the -47's are the Echo model with D's still in service.

Freefallin,
The novel will be taking place in mid 2008, will the G's be common place in 160th in the next couple years?

I want the book to be current as long as it can be, and the publishing date will be minimum spring 2008 as of now.

BTW thanks for your reply
Steve

I know the G is coming online but I'm not sure when. I'm just an information junkie so that's how I remember this stuff. :)
