Add Japenese BlackHawk Mitsubushi H-60

Many other types of blackhawks but japan only have 4 helicopters so why not give them one of the 20 billion blackhawks they used in war thunder it would be alot better and have more helis then just 4 + premium

True, although the armaments are quite limited, mostly naval, only picture i can find of it carrying A2G weapons is this, which are just 2 hellfires, maybe it can carry another 2 on the other side

i mean to be fair thats good enough just give japan a blackhawk and some other japenese blackhawk options are there

I mean yes, it could probably be at 10.3, considering that the kiowa warrior is there too with like 4 agms

Exactly plus japan has 1 crappy huey and 2 apaches which are some what okay performance and good armaments’ but then again the AH-64 DJP is good but theres literally 4 when every nation but britian and japan have more then 4 research helicopters

There is only one fin capabble for carrying AGM-114, but it can carry up to 4 Hellfires. On the reverse side, the only useful (for game) thing that you can attach is a 7.62 machine gun.

I mean it goes a little deeper than that. MHI has full license production rights for the Armed Black Hawk and are basically just waiting on the word from the MoD to start production.

  1. 武装型ブラックホーク 現役で活躍しているのは UH-60J や UH-60JA 部隊などのシコルスキー H-60 ブラックホークのシリーズ機です。主に捜索救難用途に UH-60J を、またUH-60JA型を多用途ミッションに運用しています。



It’s just a question of if having full production rights and already producing the base model is enough to justify it’s addition to Gaijin.

This is a project for the armed military UH-60. As far as we know, it was canceled at the concept stage due to budget constraints, and no prototypes were built. As a result, the UH-60JA model cost only the installation of external fuel tanks and 7.62 machine guns.

The little bird also

From everything I know it’s not canceled at all. The latest appearance was at JA2018 where it was advertised under the MHI name, meaning MHI has the license rights to advertise and produce it outside of LM control. The link I posted above of the LM website lists Japan as an active customer of the Armed Blackhawk, so Mitsubishi maintains production rights on it.

After the retirement of Japan’s attack helicopter fleet, the plan is to arm utility helicopters in the place, so we will likely see a JA ABH appear in the near future.
