A MH-60L DAP (Direct Air Penetrator) helicopter of the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR).

The DAP is a MH-60L Black Hawk which has been configured to act as a gunship.

A range of ordnance can be fitted to the DAP's various hardpoints.

This bird is armed with 2xfixed M134 miniguns, 4 AIM-92 stinger air-to-air missiles, 1x M230 30mm chain gun and a M299 launcher holding 2 AGM-114 Hellfire missiles.

The bulge under the DAP's chin is a FLIR (Forward Looking Infrared) pod which includes a laser designator for the Hellfires.

When so configured, the DAP is unable to carry passengers as all the cabin space is taken up with ammunition.
