1/72 Unimax US Navy F18F Superhornet, VFA 41 (Black Aces Squadron)

End of February is the perfect time to me to end this month with this collection that I get few weeks ago. Unimax produced the target scaled model that I want to collect. F18F Superhornet from VFA 41 Black Aces Squadron US Navy. Well about the finishing and workmanship this model I think is not much better than Witty Wings Brand Hornet Fleet Collection. I think some of you maybe agree with my comment right?. Unimax need to do some research and research before come out their product to market. Come on Unimax.. Witty Wings and you come from same country man. Please do better next model ok.

Syark Defence Force (SDF) - 1/48 Unimax US Army MH-60G Pave Hawk 1st SOW, 55th SOS, Eglin AFB, FL

1/48 Unimax USAF MH-60G Pave Hawk 1st SOW, 55th SOS, Eglin AFB, FL

Good days everybody on early of February 2014, The MH-60G's primary wartime mission is combat search and rescue, infiltration, exfiltration and resupply of special operations forces in day, night or marginal weather conditions. The MH-60G Pave Hawk provides the capability of independent rescue operations in combat areas up to and including medium-threat environments. Recoveries are made by landing or by alternate means, such as rope ladder or hoist. Low-level tactical flight profiles are used to avoid threats. Night Vision Goggle (NVG) and Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) assisted low-level night operations and night water operation missions are performed by specially trained crews. The basic crew normally consists of five: pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer, and two PJs. The aircraft can also carry eight to 10 troops.

Pave Hawks are equipped with a rescue hoist with a 200-foot (60.7 meters) cable and 600-pound (270 kilograms) lift capacity. The helicopter hoist can recover survivors from a hover height of 200 feet above the ground or vertical landings can be accomplished into unprepared areas. The hoist can recover a Stokes litter patient or three people simultaneously on a forest penetrator.

The helicopter has limited self-protection provided by side window mounted M-60, M-240, or GAU-2B machine guns. Pave Hawk is equipped with two crew-served 7.62mm miniguns mounted in the cabin windows. Also, two .50 caliber machine guns can be mounted in the cabin doors. An APR-39A(V)1 radar warning receiver, ALQ-144A infrared jammer, Hover Infrared Suppression System (HIRSS), M-130 chaff dispenser, and precision navigation equipment (GPS, Inertial Navigation System (INS), Doppler) afford additional threat avoidance and protection.
