Default Please replace the UH-60 Blackhawk and MH-6J Littlebird with the UH-1Y Huey

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UH-60_Black_Hawk
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hughes_H-6

From what I understand, the UH-60 Blackhawk and the MH-6J Littlebird are United States Army Helicopters, and are not used by the United States Marine Corps. According to what I have read, the United States Marine Corps uses the UH-1Y Huey as a light transport helicopter, the V-22 Osprey (which is replacing the CH-46 Sea Knight) as a medium transport helicopter and the CH-53E Super Stallion as a heavy transport helicopter:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CH-46_Sea_Knight
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-22_Osprey
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CH-53E_Super_Stallion

It can be used either a transport or an assault helicopter so here some sources of information on its weapon capabilities:

Would the developers please replace the UH-60 Blackhawk and MH-6J Littlebird with UH-1Y Huey helicopters?

Until the US Army is in the Project Reality as a subfaction, we should not be seeing the UH-60 Blackhawk and MH-6J Littlebird in it, and assuming that they are made to be used exclusively by the US Army when it is ready, there is still the matter of what the heck the Marines will use. The USMC does not use US Army helicopters, even if it is working side by side with the US Army, which is rare, so whenever the USMC is the branch of the US military fighting and it needs a light transport helicopter, it should be using the UH-1Y Huey.

Yeah but until PRMM is in the 1.0 stage we should not criticise the current loadouts as they're clearly incomplete. Eddie and other DEVs have said many times that they're considering the Huey for a later release, but for now it's unconfirmed.

Oh, okay. Just as long as they are not using Army helicopters for the Marines in the 1.0 release. I am sure that such a thing would be a huge insult to anyone that has served or knows someone who has served in the USMC.

Who cares about insults. We need hueys so we can turn on the Hendrix, break out an M60 and pretend we're in Veitnam!

The key to modernising any weapon is covering them in glue and tossing them in a barrel of M1913 rails until they look "Modern" enough.

Many thanks to [R-DEV]Adriaan for the sig!

If we're gonna have army equipment, I wanna see army combat uniforms (ACUs).

People just don't understand how spec ops work. Even though force recon are not part of the JSOC they still work together all the time. That's right, the marines use the 160'th as a taxi service too and guess what they fly...

I understand the complaint and if you would like to model, skin, do the UV work, import and test new helos then give them to us, be my guest.
