Chinook helicopter

The Chinook helicopter although good for heavy transport of arms, men and ammunition it is not good for stealth operations against nimble footed infantries in the eastern hemisphere.

1 single RPG from an Afghan Taliban brought this massive mammoth down on 6th August 2011. Mind you the accurate range of an RPG is hardly 250 meters

The crash killed 17 SEALs, 5 Navy special operations troops who support the SEALs, three Air Force airmen, a 5-member Army air crew, 7 Afghan commandos and an Afghan interpreter in August 2011
