Depends on how upgraded the cockpit is.

If it's that important then they shouldn't have been letting people sit in the cockpit and let their pics get taken, then yell at me for taking a pic.

Isn't the USMC getting new AH-1Z Vipers and UH-1Y Venoms? They seem like decent upgrades.

Obviously haven't seen the latest test build for PR


Disclaimer: this is a joke, and no, in the next test build we do not get C17s with combat capabilities, if anyone thinks this, and suggests it, or for that matter suggests a C17 in PR, I will set Thermis on you. If you do not know who Thermis is, then that is the best thing that has happened in your life. Also I have no idea what's in the next test build, see first 4 words.

Awesome, armed C17's in PR. What's the weapons load out?

More like: "If you want logistics, join the Army. Marines make due." When they were running low on PEQ2/Thermal batteries and Lube for their Mk. 19s...

But that's beside the point. My guess as to why the Marines use different equipment is because they want to be different than the Army. Different uniforms, custom/traditions, etc.

Either that, or like Solid Knight said, because they are cheaper. AFAIK, the USMC doesn't get as much funding as the US Army. (But hey, I could be wrong )

Oh well i still like both helicopters and they are still very useful, i am sure that eventually both will be replaced by black hawks and Apaches when companies stop fixing and producing cobras and hueys all though i may be wrong.
