Sikorsky HH-60G Pave Hawk Military Helicopter

Based on the ubiquitous Sikorsky S-70 family of helicopters the Sikorsky HH-60G Pave Hawk is effectively a modified UH-60 Black Hawk to make it meet the requirements of a personnel recovery platform for use in adverse or hostile combat situations. The United States Air Force introduced the Sikorsky HH-60G Pave Hawk as a replacement for it's aging HH-3E Jolly Green Giant helicopters from 1987. Although the Sikorsky HH-60G Pave Hawk's primary user is the USAF it is notably also in use with the Korean Air Force.

PAVE (Precision Avionics Vectoring Equipment) is instrumental in the success of the helicopters missions as it allows the precise location of the rescue target to be located with relative ease.
