About MH-60T Jayhawk - United States Coast Guard Multi-Mission Helicopter:
A mainstay of the United States Coast Guard, the MH-60T Jayhawk is an iconic image of search and rescue operations along with maritime law enforcement. This red and white helicopter is often seen on nightly news programs during hurricanes, floods, and other natural disasters. The Jayhawk is equipped with a sophisticated radar and sensor system for locating and tracking surface targets, day or night. The Jayhawk also comes equipped with a hoist system capable of lifting up to 600 pounds. This equipment is crucial in rescuing civilians during an emergency, typically used for “plucking” people out of flooded areas, stranded vehicles, or damaged sea vessels.
The Jayhawk is also used by the Coast Guard for patrolling US shorelines to intercept smugglers, drug traffickers, and other criminals. For these dangerous operations, the Jayhawk is equipped with a 7.62 machine gun and a .50 caliber sniper rifle. The sniper rifle is deployed to disable engines in case a sea vessel attempts to outrun the helicopter.
