The VH-60 Seahawk presidential helicopter is a multi-mission aircraft equipped with a twin turboshaft engine. It is easily recognized because it is the navalized version of the more famous UH-60 â€œBlack Hawk.â€ However, the VH-60, being a maritime aircraft, features over-water capabilities that its more popular brother does not. It has folding appendages for onboard stowage, strengthened understructures, and specialized coatings to protect against the corrosive effects of the sea air. The VH-60 was introduced to the public in 1979, featuring the ability to deploy aboard any air-capable cruiser or aircraft carrier. This presidential helicopter can also handle antisubmarine warfare, naval special warfare insertion, combat search and rescue, and medical evacuation. The VH-60 Seahawk is mainly used today by the US Navy and Coast Guard, and also by the Maritime Self-Defense Force of Japan.
