MH-60 BLACK HAWK ARMAMENT The original Black Hawk specification was for a utility, multi-mission helicopter, and they can be fitted with an array of weapons systems to suit mission requirements. The Black Hawk’s hardpoint ‘stub wings’ can be mounted with Hellfire missiles, rocket pods, GAU-19 gatling guns, M-134 miniguns, as well as additional fuel tanks for long-haul missions. Where hardpoints are not required, crew-operated, doormounted 7.62mm or .50-calibre machine-guns are installed to provide supporting fire, or other mission-specific functions. 65
