The Sikorsky S-70 variant in reality

The UH-60 Black Hawk is a four-bladed, twin-engine, medium-lift utility helicopter manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft. Originally known as the Sikorsky S-70, it won a contest to be designated the UH-60 Black Hawk and spawning a large family in U.S. military service. New and improved versions of the UH-60 have been developed since. Civilian versions, and some military versions are produced under various S-70 model designations.

The UH-60A Black Hawk entered service with the United States Army in 1979, to replace the Bell UH-1 Iroquois as the Army's tactical transport helicopter. This was followed by the fielding of electronic warfare and special operations variants of the Black Hawk. Improved UH-60L and UH-60M utility variants have also been developed. Modified versions have also been developed for the U.S. Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard. In addition to U.S. Army use, the UH-60 family has been exported to several nations. Black Hawks have served in combat during conflicts in Grenada, Panama, Iraq, Somalia, the Balkans, Afghanistan, and other areas in the Middle East.

TriviaEdit

Battlefield 2: Modern CombatEdit

  • The Black Hawk is armed with rockets and side mounted miniguns unlike the other transport helicopters.

Battlefield: Bad CompanyEdit

  • In the Bad Company series' singleplayer, almost every Black Hawk the squad rides on gets shot down.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2Edit

  • When a gunner kills a player with the UH-60's minigun, the game shows the UH-60 as the AH-60 in the killcam and as UH-64 in the killfeed.
  • In singleplayer, the UH-60 has guns that the pilot can fire, however in multiplayer, only the side-mounted guns are present.
  • If there are squad members in the Gunner Seat, for every kill they get the driver receives an assist of 50 points, the same amount as getting a normal kill.
  • A friendly engineer riding in a passenger seat can repair the Black Hawk, allowing players to stay up in the air for long periods of time. However, helicopters are only able to be repaired while flying level, since the game perceives it as idle if on the ground.
  • If someone such as an Assault or Medic drops a Medkit/Ammo box while in the Black Hawk, it will fall through the floor towards the ground.
  • On servers with adjusted spawn time, the players sitting on the Black Hawk's miniguns experience a bug named the Zoom Bug, which occurs when the server has a spawn time of 10 seconds instead of the default 15 seconds. On the occurrence of the bug, when the player spawn on a squad member inside the Black Hawk, the zoom reverts in a 1.0x magnification, making it easier to follow and kill the enemies than the normal zoom level. It behaves opposite to the available zoom in feature, giving you enhanced view but keeping crosshair at moving hostiles is harder.
