AH-60 Battle Hawk can apparently now detect pantsir tracking radar

Been playing the battle hawk since it came out and it could never detect pantsir tracking. Now its able to detect bands C-M which means pantsir K band tracking antenna is detectable. Pleasant buff thank you gaijin.

Erm ☝️🤓 it’s actually a pave hawk thank you very much

It most certainly is NOT an HH-60 Pavehawk. Just because it retains the refueling boom does not mean it is a Pavehawk. It also lacks the door guns necessary to fulfill the Pavehawks role.

Yes, I am a former US Air Force helicopter maintenance mechanic (2a552). Also known as a helicopter crew chief. I was qualified and worked UH-1N’s, MH/HH-60G’s, and MH-53A/B/J’s. Also the significance of the number at the end my name is for aircraft tail number 82-23718. She was the first helicopter I was the DCC on (dedicated crew chief) but what makes her significant? She was the first and only HH-60D Night Hawk. She started off as an A model. Modified to D model. Unfortunately, the nighthawk program was canceled. And she was demodified to a G model. She was retired April 21 2021.

This can’t be real. This game’s playerbase has a staff member of one of the most interesting,unique and almost secret aircraft variant ever conceived?

Now you got my full attention,sir.

That’s honestly rad,the only thing i can “”“flex”“” on is having a uncle that served as a ground crew during Desert Storm for the Italian Air Force,my grandfather that served in the Italian Navy and went to the rescue of all the Vietnamese that were escaping after the war and my dad that helped the implementation pf the Captor-E into the Eurofighter.

That’s it,i do not know further details simply because they didn’t wanted to tell me anything else

The only thing I have to “””””flex””””” is I’m in the airforce, I was a sere instructor for the past 10 years, now I’m transitioning to Tacp, love the people I work with like family. Never want to leave.

My dad was a sere instructor for 25 years, fun
Guy, cool story’s.
I’ll provide some photos of him





This one here he was teaching astronauts lmao
He’s the one leaning back watching in black.

I kinda felt the responsibility to follow his footsteps after my sisters didn’t, so I did it, I can tell you I never walked more in my life, Never met so many cocky Pj’s or force recon guys. To be honest it was fun breaking them down. Those guys were in over there head

Nah bruh you can definitely flex your stories and your dad’s,you are both awesome!

First of all,thank you for your service.

Second of all, teaching SERE is one of the most hellish things you can do,and honestly it baffles me that you’ve encountered even one cocky guy.

If i was recruited,i would’ve listened to you like a fkn puppy simply because you have A LOT of experience,both personal and indirect from your father.

I’m not into any branches, although i have a lot of friends enlisted (from SAR pilots to AF instructors to retired sub privates and officers to Radar/AA specialists)i simply don’t have the attitude to follow my country and the blatant nepotism. But damn if their stories interests me a lot.
I really want to post some photos of my grandpa,but unfortunately they’re part of his last will that is now property of my dad,so yeah they’re pretty hidden. For my uncle,i could ask him and see if he has the time to give them to me
