This is what taking part to a U.S. Special Forces raid on board a 160th SOAR MH-60 Black Hawk looks like

The following picture provides an interesting point of view: that of U.S. Special Forces (USSF) soldiers scanning the ground below for threats while flying on a 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment‘s MH-60 Black Hawk during a Fast Rope Insertion Extraction System training exercise.

USSF fast roped onto a specific target during the Special Forces Advanced Reconnaissance, Target Analysis, and Exploitation Techniques Course, John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School on Fort Bragg, N.C., Aug. 28, 2012

The Black Hawk of the 160th SOAR (A) barely visible in the picture is believed to be only loosely similar to the advanced stealthy MH-X “Silent Hawk” (or Stealth Black Hawk) that the “Night Stalkers” used to infiltrate and exfiltrate U.S. Navy SEALs during the Osama Bin Laden raid in May 2011.

  • This Black Hawk seems to be flat dark green and not flat black as you wrote. The handle of the door is black but not the door

    The paint is dark flat olive drab. It is not black, but at night has that appearance.
