Pics of my 72nd helo
Posted by allan on Sunday, July 6, 2003 6:48 AM
Here are photos of my 72nd Italeri HH-60F. Italeri calls it a Seahawk, but its actually a Rescuehawk. Im at a loss as to the proper designation, HH-60F or HH-60H. My references contradict each other. Whats the low down?

Allan,
The H-60F is the SH-60F CV Helo. This version of the Hawk is based on carriers and uses dipping sonar for searching the 'inner zone' around the carrier for subs. The SH-60B does not have dipping sonar which is preferred in the high noise area around the carrier battle group. The HH-60H was created as a rescue aircraft (as you indicated) and has frequently been used as a special ops platform. I must admit I'm rusty on IDing the H and F model Naval Hawks but I'll check my book and get back to you with a positive ID of your variant.

Thanks, guys! Glad you liked it.

Paul,

Thanks for info! I'm a little confused with the H and the F designation.

Yes, an HH-60H, and a really nice one at that.
Well done job of opening it up and detailing it.
You should post the photos over at the Heli-Kit News Gallery too;
