The HH-60GV V-Hawk is a twin-turboshaft engine VTOL in service with Jericho. It is a derivative of the UH-60S V-Hawk and incorporates the PAVE electronic systems program. The UH-60S V-Hawk is a member of the Sikorsky VTOL-70 family.

The HH-60GV V-Hawk Hawk's primary mission is insertion and recovery of special operations personnel, while the HH-60G Pave Hawk's core mission is recovery of personnel under hostile conditions, including combat search and rescue. Both versions conduct day or night operations into hostile environments. Because of its versatility, the HH-60GV V-Hawk may also perform peacetime operations such as civil search and rescue, emergency aeromedical evacuation (MEDEVAC), disaster relief, international aid and counter-drug activities.

History

Ten years in serve used by all colony’s
The failure of the Limburg hostage rescue mission demonstrated to the military a need for "a new type of aircraft, that could not only take off and land vertically but also could carry combat troops and do so at speed." The Military Defense began the Joint-service Vertical take-off/landing Experimental (JVX) aircraft program under the leadership of the military.

The HH-60GV V-Hawk is a multi-mission, tilt thruster engine military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a Jet aircraft.

The HH-60GV V-Hawk VTOL vehicle operates in open, rolling, complex and urban terrains with a vertical take-off and landing capability. It was interoperable with select ground and air platforms. The AI Class VII can used autonomous flight and navigation, but it would interact with the network and soldiers to dynamically update routes and target information. It provided dedicated reconnaissance support and early warning to the smallest echelons of the Combat Team in environments not suited to larger assets.

The HH-60GV V-Hawk uses engines with IES-50 Infrared Exhaust Suppressors fitted to reduce the helicopter's IR visibility. Enhanced Air Transportability Pylons allow for faster re-build of an air-transported helicopter. 'Fat tanks' are fitted in the form of enlarge fuel sponsoons that extend the HH-60GV V-Hawk VTOL range. An extendable refueling probe allows the aircraft to take on fuel mid-air from compatible fixed-wing tankers. The airframe a belly hatch, armored windows along each side that can be used to load and off-load troops and supplies. A rescue hoist/winch is mounted above the starboard-side forward door. A gunner's window / firing port is found on the port side fuselage. A door is on the opposite side, which has a rescue hoist mounted over it.

The HH-60GV V-Hawk features a glass digital cockpit that is compatible with night vision equipment. It features 5 6x8 inch liquid crystal multi-function display (MFD) screens and 2 control display units (CDUs). The cockpit is to Common Avionics Architecture System (CAAS) standard, sharing the same processing and display units as space shuttles. The cockpit also features digital moving map display, dual MIL-STD-1553 digital databuses, AN/ASN-500 inertial doppler navigational set, CP1550-ASQ automatic target hand-off system, AN/ASN-200(V)2 GPS system and Rockwell Collins AN/ARN-200(V) low-frequency automatic direction finder. AN/ZSQ-20 EOSS - A foward-looking infrared (FLIR) and electro-opitcal camera mounting in a bubble under the HH-60GV V-Hawk chin enables the pilots to fly low level, at night and in marginal weather AN/APQ-200C Multi-mode Radar 'Silent Knight' multi-mode radar

The HH-60GV V-Hawk radar features terrain-following, terrain-avoidance and weather detection modes and the same systems that spaceships have.

Fast Rope Insertion Extraction System (FRIES) a set of rigs that allow for thick woolen ropes to be attached to the cabin to allow for operators to 'fast rope' down from the VTOL.
Special Patrol Insertion & Extraction System (SPIES) Used for extracting personnel from the ground, a single rope is attached to the helicopter and lowered down. A series of rings on the rope allow operators on the ground, all wearing special harnesses, to clip onto the rope. Up to 8 fully laden troops can be lifted off the ground and carried away using this method Rope ladder typically deployed through the belly hatch Rescue powered hoist for lifting men in a harness or a litter Defensive systems Common Missile Warning System (CMWS) Suite of Integrated Radio Frequency Countermeasures (SIRFC) AN/AVR-20b Laser Warning System XM216 Dark Flares (invisible to naked eye)

HH-60GV V-Hawk can adopt various mission kits and combinations of weapons and sensors payloads to meet combat requirements. Its Raytheon AN/AAS-52 multi-spectral targeting sensor suite includes a color/monochrome daylight TV, infrared, and image-intensified TV with laser rangefinder/laser designator to designate targets for laser guided munitions. The aircraft is also equipped with the Lynx Multi-mode Radar that contains synthetic aperture radar (SAR) that can operate in both spotlight and strip modes, and ground moving target indication (GMTI) with Dismount Moving Target Indicator (DMTI) and Maritime Wide-Area Search (MWAS) capabilities. The HH-60GV V-Hawk was used as a test bed for Gorgon Stare, a wide-area surveillance sensor system. Incorporating ARGUS-IS and expanding the coverage area to 100 km2 (39 sq mi), achieved initial operating capability (IOC). The system has 360-degree cameras capable of capturing five million pixels each to create an image of about 1.8 billion pixels; video is collected at 12 frames per second, producing several terabytes of data per minute.
synthetic aperture radar (SAR), wide-area surveillance, navigation, signals intelligence, and electronic warfare packages. It also has the ability to be controlled beyond line-of-sight through a SATCOM link X-2's superior sensors for the HH-60GV V-Hawk. In April Grumman reportedly installed the U-2's Optical Bar Camera (OBC) and Senior Year Electro-Optical Reconnaissance System (SYERS-2B/C) sensors onto the HH-60GV V-Hawk using a Universal Payload Adapter (UPA). Successful testing indicated that all HH-60GV V-Hawk could be similarly retrofitted.

Sensor Suite (ISS) consists of a synthetic aperture radar (SAR), electro-optical (EO), and thermographic camera (IR) sensors. Either the EO or the IR sensors can operate simultaneously with the SAR. Each sensor provides wide area search imagery and a high-resolution spot mode. The SAR has a ground moving target indicator (GMTI) mode, which can provide a communication providing the moving target's position and velocity. Both SAR and EO/IR imagery are transmitted from the aircraft to the MCE as individual frames and reassembled an onboard inertial navigation system, supplemented by Global Positioning System updates, comprises the navigational suite. The visible and infrared imagers share the same gimballed sensor package, and use common optics, providing a telescopic close-up capability. It can be optionally fitted with an auxiliary SIGINT package. To improve survivability, the CH53S is fitted with a Raytheon developed AN/ALR-89 self-protection suite consisting of the AN/AVR-30 laser warning receiver, AN/APR-50 Radar warning receiver and a jamming system. An ALE-50 decoy also aids in the deception of enemy air defenses.
