New Air Force helicopters that can ‘defy Armageddon’
Defense Specialist Allison Barrie has the inside scoop on the us Air Force the new MH-139 helicopters which will be replaced by the UH-1N ‘Huey’ and the take of two very dangerous, but incredibly important, missions.
Ever wondered what would happen to the US leadership and the nuclear missile arsenal if the nation was attacked? New helicopters will keep these two very dangerous – and very important – missions.
When the war broke out and American home soil is threatened, then shall the land a profession at the cutting-edge military flying machines that were just announced by the U.S. air force.
The air force is replacing the UH-1N “Huey” helicopter fleet. The iconic Huey is often associated with military missions, such as search and rescue during the almost five decades of military service.
The Hueys are used for the protection of America’s intercontinental ballistic missile bases and take the key of the government leadership to safety, so that continuation of the management board.
And the Hueys, while widely popular, have been in service for nearly half a century.

The bet for these two missions are huge. Should the need arise, then these missions should never fail.
The US air force has just unveiled the Boeing-Leonardo partnership MH-139 as the Huey’s replacement MH-139 is a militarised version of the commercially available Leonardo AW139 Helicopters.
The Boeing-Leonardo-team draft, faced with competition from the Sierra Nevada Corporation “Sierra Power” and Lockheed Martin Sikorsky’s Black Hawk approach.
USAF plans to buy 84 of these new helicopters, with the first arrival in 2021.
The Huey is made by Bell Helicopter and the air force has 59 active. Powered by two Pratt and Whitney T400-CP-400 turboshaft engines, it can reach speeds of 149 mph and has a range of more than 300 km. The helicopter can fly at an altitude of 15,000 feet and carry approximately 10,500 pounds.
WEAPONS UPGRADE SET TO MAKE OUR OPERATIONS EVEN MORE DEADLY
The MH-139 is expected to have more speed, range, endurance and payload – as well as a number of useful new developments to improve “continuity”.
The stop of the political VIPs of the result of a reaction to an attack and disrupt the continuity of the board would certainly be an attractive target for an opponent. A new helicopter with upgrade possibilities would be able to offer more benefits for a successful escape to safety.
To the defense of the missile sites, a helicopter can fly faster, farther and carry more defenders would certainly be useful.
Here is a look at some of the upgrades in this recently unveiled aircraft, which can also be used for USAF missions, such as testing, training, and the survival of the school.

Machine Gun Windows
The MH-139 design contains special tactical windows that slide up and down. In place of machine guns mounted on pintles blocking some of the space to go in through the door of the cabin (as they can on a number of helicopters), this means that the windows can be used.

Uncluttering the access point can be useful, for example, the loading of the leaders of the government needed to quickly board of directors, while the machine gun as he fired to protect them.
The square cabin has enough space for up to 15 persons. There are sliding doors on both sides of the cabin that can be useful for fast loading and unloading of Vip’s.
To the defense of the missile sites, the ability to transport large numbers of highly trained military teams will be useful. The 54th Helicopter Squadron, for example, could deliver the 91st security forces Group, defenders, and together provide a rapid response to threats.
Or the helicopters evacuating personnel or the defense of nuclear missile silos, opponents would no doubt be interested in the locate and follow them.
The design takes this into consideration. For example, the airflow and the direction of the exhaust be used to help reduce the helicopters’ IR signature.
Less Collisions Of Birds
The design also includes side-to-motors which help to reduce collisions of birds that can lead to serious problems and even down aircraft. The engines are mounted in separate turbine engine burst containment compartments.
5 Blade Rotors
The main rotor has five blades. To improve performance and reduce noise, it has a fully articulated fail-safe system.

Both the tail and main rotor for a high ground clearance, which helps in the safe evacuation of personnel.
Mission – Ensure the follow-up of the Presidential Leadership
The nation should not be without leadership, and the army has an incredible plan in place to ensure that this never happens. The mission is to ensure that the government of the United States.
How does the continuity of the follow-up work in practice?
In principle, it should be a serious national emergency situation arise, then the President of the united states (or the person who has had to succeed him or her) can allow a temporary government to keep control of the essential functions of the Federal Government. This is often referred to as the “shadow government.”
Of a hostile nation submarines suddenly rise off the coast of Virginia and the launch of rockets due to a potential deadly virus outbreak … there are multiple scenarios that could possibly put the President, the Vice-President and other high political and military leadership is in danger.
LARGEST EVER IN A BRITISH WARSHIP JOINS FORCES WITH THE MOST POWERFUL AMERICAN STEALTH FIGHTER JETS
For example, on Sept. 11, 2001, President Bush activated the shadow government soon after the World Trade Center incidents.
The name “The President of the Wing,” the 89th Airlift Wing supports Andrews AFB Air Mobility Command wing. In addition to the American political and military leaders, Andrews also takes care of the foreign royalty, prime ministers, presidents, popes, and foreign military top brass.
An emergency alert can notify 1st Helicopter Squadron at Andrews Air Force Base to the head of the Capitol building and the evacuation of the top leaders of the congress to a place of safety.
The very talented pilots at Joint Base Andrews in conjunction with the new MH-139 helicopters will ensure that if something were to happen to the president or others in the chain of leadership succession – is the next in the row will have reached the safety and is ready to instantly take over.
Mission – to Protect and Defend Nations’ Nuclear Missiles
If a “Red Dawn”-type scenario in which a powerful, well-armed country invades US house of the soil occurs, then it is particularly important that the nation’s missiles to be defended and kept out of the hands of the enemy.
A MILITARY HELICOPTER DRONE THAT CAN FIGHT FIRES
But threats to the missile silos come in all shapes and sizes over a full invasion.
These new helos will take over the mission to these threats. They defend this mighty nuclear missile arsenals that could launch strikes against opponents over the entire oceans – and they will protect it against such strong, destructive weapons fall into the hands of the enemy.
Within Air Force Global Strike Command, the Hueys are used by the 90th Missile Wing, F. E. Warren AFB, Wyoming, the 341st Missile Wing, Malmstrom AFB, Montana, and the 91st Missile Wing, Minot AFB, North Dakota.
