I made medevac version of UH-60L.
Also, i added slime lights ;-) They are for aircraft flying in formation. You line the lights on the stabilator up with the ones on the tail and it will put you at about 45 degrees.
Looks awsome Yuri, Since your working on the 160th SOAR Blackhawks, any chance of one with stretchers and a few seats in it? If not its cool, Just an Idea.
Those medevac birds looks hot What about a c2 version of the mh-60l that would also be Nice too

any chances for Mk19 0.50cal Minigun ?
Gau-12 ? ;-)
Last I checked they did not put MK19's on choppers (Except the USMC, I think they put MK 19's on CH46's) And a the GAU 12 is the .50 minigun, but I could be wrong.
GAU-12 is Vulcan replacement for AH-130U Spooky and Harvest-Hawk-suitable C-130's, which include all latest KC-130's, HH-130's, and significant portions of MC-130, EC-130, DC-130. and such conversion is swiftly underway.
so soon, both USMC, SOCOM AF and Army, willl had about 109 AH-130's alone and about 400 others Hercules gunships, converted into attack-mission/configuration along with about 30's MC-12's. sadly ISRT UAV's production/deployment delayed. obviously spending/burning some more biomass/people/soldiers considered more "cost-effective" by politicians.
and no, both GAU-12[five barrel early variant] and GAU-22[shortened four-barrel F-35 version] are 25mm cannons not 20mm.
if you saw difference between vulcan/chaingun and bushmaster2 rounds you get what that mean. its just like how rounds from ZU23 differ from2A42/2A72/2A38.
LOT more punch/firepower per hit/shell, more accuracy/range.
main difference is US MC and AF crafts more rely on Griffin and Helfire missiles[and Jdam mk3 rounds later tnx 2 booster] rather than GAU-12, 40mm Bofors and 105mm howitver with DU-Frag rounds,that SOCOM/SFOD tend to.
for fire-support consistency aswell as for consistent/persistent surveillance/integrity of battlefield, in [usual]absence of satellite/uav/mc-12 support. so "weaker but longer fire-support" and "had eye on the skies" outweighs "had volcano burning skies to ground that disappear soon afterthat"
