The 160th Special Operations Aviations Regiment specializes in carrying out its life-and-death operations under the cover of darkness, hence their nickname: "Night Stalkers." They are renowned for being swift, sure, and particularly deadly with their accuracy in using state-of-the-art aircraft and equipment to assist special ops from the air. Their specialty is covert insertion, re-supply, and extraction of Special Ops teams. They also take part in armed escort, reconnaissance, surveillance, and electronic warfare in support of missions. This book profiles the Night Stalkers and their special skills, techniques, aircraft, and equipment. It details numerous operational scenarios and describes in detail their equipment, including OH-6 light observation helicopters, MH-60 Blackhawk utility helicopters, and MH-47 Chinock medium modified Little Bird and Blackhawk helicopters.
