After a lot of experimenting and changing my Jayhawk around, I just decided to create another version all together. This one, which I think looks really cool, is a version of a US Navy HH-60H Seahawk, more affectionately known as the Rescue Hawk. Enjoy!
About this creation
The Sikorsky HH-60H Rescue Hawk, is essentially a Jayhawk in body design, however they both have their own distinguishing features. What's different about the Jayhawk vs. Rescue Hawk? Well, for one, the Jayhawk's primary mission is search-and-rescue, used exclusively by the US Coast Guard, and does not typically carry weapons. The Rescue Hawk, used exclusively by the US Navy, is a combat search and rescue helicopter, meaning that it's job is to fly into hostile enemy territory and rescue a downed pilot, or injured soldier. It's mission requires it to have more armor and bigger weapons, giving it the ability to protect itself and its crew.
My version is actually pretty versatile, as it was built to be able to carry two different arms packages. The first, a Force Protection package, includes two M240s, a Barrett M107, and a RGM-84 Harpoon anti ship missile that allows it to be prepared to handle just about any threat, either land, air or sea based. The second package is the Landing Zone Clearance package, that allows the helicopter to carry two very large miniguns, the GAU-16/A for, as the title suggests, clearing a potential landing zone of any hostile forces. Of course, if the helicopter were to be stationed stateside, or in a location that doesn't call for mounted weapons, all armaments can be removed.
This HH-60H Rescue Hawk is stationed at US Naval Air Station Foster Lake, near the City of Lego Heights, Ohio. As part of an agreement between the City of Lego Heights and NAS Foster Lake, the City of Lego Heights Fire Department provides the base with full time fire/rescue services, and the US Navy provides the City of Lego Heights with an airborne asset for medevac, search and rescue, and other services. The NAS Foster Lake Search And Rescue division is also available for any nearby fire department or police department in need of a helicopter for search and rescue or SWAT support.
I'm currently debating whether or not I want to put stickers on it, you know, like "US Navy' and the tail number, things like that. I may do it, and I may not, we'll just have to see.
This helicopter features a fully constructed cabin and cockpit, complete with equipment compartments, fold down seating, a complete medical kit (the yellow box) and crew seating in the rear.
Here, the crew chief and rescue swimmer show off their Rescue Hawk's Barrett M107 anti-material rifle, used to disable fleeing enemy vessels, or to take precision shots at enemy combatants on the ground.
Again, the crew chief and rescue swimmer are showing off the RGM-84 Harpoon anti-ship missile that comes loaded on their helicopter, as well as its port side window mounted M240B
Just because of the immense amount of time and effort spent on this helicopter, and all four previous versions before it, I'm not going to post or distribute any full LDD design files for this helicopter. If you're looking to use elements from the Rescue Hawk for your own MOC, I welcome you to do so and under certain circumstances I may be willing to assist in the design if needed. But again, NO FULL LDD FILES WILL BE GIVEN. TO ANYONE.
