    Default Secret Stealth Helicopter used in Bi Laden Op

    It looks like a new piece of stealth technology was used in the Bin Laden operation. That's why the SEAL team destroyed the bird that crashed. Unfortunately they left one big piece of the puzzle in place. It's thought to be based on the UH-60 Blackhawk internal structure with stealthy panels on the fuselage along with an entirely new main and tail rotor structure.

    Looks like a cross between a comanche and a blackhawk.

    I'm more interested in the rumored Aurora - replacement to the SR71 that can fly at Mach 12 (or 8000mph) at supposedly 150,000ft.

    Why is every one freaking out over the tail rotor and some "stealth helicopter"?? its most likely just a Sikorsky Silent hawk aka a special kitted Black hawk. Its a concept that has been in development for a while now and was first proposed quite a while ago this is just the first confirmation of it in use.

    I noticed the tail rotor on a few images that were floating around the web and thought that is a really weird tail rotor. Tried googling the "stealth helicopter" and no luck.. very cool find. I wonder if these copters have the new "silent" rotors.


    yes, military tech and history is very cool to me.

    I read that the noise these copters make is far reduced from a regular mission copter. This is what allowed them to get to where they needed to be without the Pakistani gov't intervening with their own aircraft.
