Hollywood take on the stealth helicopter

Recommended Posts

a trio of senators -- John McCain, Dianne Feinstein and Carl Levin -- complained the film was "grossly inaccurate."????

Well, DUH!!! It's Hollywierd, what do you expect?!?! :rofl:

I was shocked to see that Feinstein & McCain agreed on something. :shoot:

"grossly inaccurate."

Politicians complaining about accuracy? I would go, on but I think I am getting sucked into a black hole of irony. :woot.gif:

Anyway I´m very curious about the real appearance of that helicopter. Probably it will be very different from what people and "internet experts" are thinking.

I'm very impressed that we still haven't seen it yet. Usually they're terrible about keeping secrets.

It is my understanding the helicopters by their nature don't steath that well (something about the whirly bits on top). It wouldn't surprise me at all if the modifications were really more about visual stealth to make it harder to identify as US (look more like an Mi-8, Huey or whatever the Pakistanis use). As the mission was planned for darkness it wouldn't have to be that good of a disguise, just enough to provide doubt.

As I haven't even seen the fake photos I could be way off on this.

Dust of the memory banks and remember what they (meaning John Q. and everyone else) thought the F-119 looked like.....and then the actual article looks like....the defense rest your honor.
