MH_47E SOA Chinnok

The Boeing MH-47E Chinook is a derivative of the CH-47D Chinook heavy lift helicopter developed specifically for use with the Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (SOAR.) The MH-47E's primary mission is that of long-range, all weather, all altitude, SOF insertion/extraction platform with integral command and control capabilities.

Development of the MH-47E was authorized in December of 1989 with the first prototype (built from an existing CH-47D airframe) assembled and flying in June of 1990. The initial production aircraft was flown in 1992, but design and flight system software issues delayed delivery to the Army until January of 1994. The Army had initially requested 51 MH-47E helicopters (to be constructed from existing CH-47D helicopters) but this request was cut to 29 aircraft. The last MH-47E was delivered in April of 1995.

As part of the upgrade/modification process, the MH-47E was equipped with more powerful Honeywell T55-L-714A turboshaft engines, an aerial refueling probe, redesigned landing gear as well as improved and enlarged fuel tanks, and provisions for auxiliary fuel tanks in the cargo area.

The MH-47E airframe was modified to incorporate the nose section off of Boeing's civilian Chinook variant, which allowed the MH-47E to accommodate a color weather radar system, as well as a forward looking infrared imaging system. The MH-47 also features a rescue hoist, (equipped with 200 feet of cable, rated to 600 pounds), as well as the Fast Rope Insertion and Extraction System (FRIES.)

The MH-47E flight deck was rebuilt to incorporate newer "glass cockpit" technology (digital instruments, multi-function displays) and is completely ANVIS-7 night vision compatible. The MH-47E also features additional communications equipment, advance self-defense electronics, and terrain avoidance and mapping radar. The MH-47E also features a mission commander/navigator station.

 

The MH-47E is currently in service with the 160th SOAR.
