The Russian and American approaches are not that different

Russia is the most recent country to embrace the American routine of making flight units with helicopters prepared and groups prepared for exceptional operations missions. These units focus on unique operations missions and answer just to extraordinary operations commandants. But instead than putting all the extraordinary operations helicopters in a couple of extensive units the Russians are making a preparation program to plan experienced helicopter pilots to utilize existing transport helicopters furnished with the uncommon gear that empowers them to fly during the evening and in terrible climate. These pilots and their helicopters will be doled out to at least ten separations of “uncommon operations flying” that will be positioned around the nation to bolster exceptional operations units that are comparably scattered. Numerous different nations, similar to Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Italy and Japan made units like the American 160 th Aviation Regiment. So has the U.S. Aviation based armed forces and U.S. Naval force, generally for battle protect missions they are approached to perform.

American commandos and Special Forces have had their own flying corps; the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, since 1981.The 160th started by changing over the flight detachment of the 101st Airborne Division. This included adding night flying apparatus to the vast majority of the helicopters and later extra hardware and exceptional weapons. By 2001 the 160th had 1,600 work force and over a hundred kept an eye on and unmanned airplane. They were nicknamed the Night Stalkers and had demonstrated so viable that after 2001 the armed force (to which the 160th has a place) multiplied the measure of the unit. That was mostly expert by adding extra legions to the regiment. By 2006, the 160th had more than 3,000 faculty and progressively a billion dollars was spent on this extension. In the most recent decade number of faculty shrank by no less than 10% yet new air ship (like twelve of the new expansive MQ-1C UAVs) and gear redesigns were included. The 160th has about 200 helicopters and UAVs.

The Night Stalkers are so named on the grounds that their helicopters are prepared for night flying, and the teams invest a great deal of energy preparing during the evening. The pilots of the 160th are likewise master at long range operations. In this way the bigger choppers, similar to the 37 MH-47D Chinooks can refuel noticeable all around. The size and capacities makes the MH47s makes them exceptionally mainstream so they are being moved up to the MH-47G standard and another 50 are on request. More MH-60 Black Hawks will likewise be purchased.

The new gear on the MH-47G incorporates a radar that shows territory beneath and permits more secure flight in all climate and around evening time. New cockpit controls and shows that diminish pilot workload and make it simpler to continue top of things. An as good as ever forward-looking infrared radar (FLIR). A 7.62mm six zoomed assault rifle (a Gatling weapon sort) that can start up to 66 rounds a moment. The MH-47G has auxiliary and hardware changes that expansion odds of surviving assault or a crash. There are likewise bigger fuel tanks.

The Russian and American methodologies are not that diverse in light of the fact that the American unique operations air ship work for the most part work in little separations while supporting operations everywhere throughout the planet. Be that as it may, whatever is left of the time the segments of the 160th are situated in three areas in the United States, which is more effective for preparing, support and confidence.
