The CH-47F Chinook, a twin-engine twin-rotor helicopter, has been in service with the Royal Canadian Air Force since 2013. Recognized as one of the heaviest and fastest helicopters to date, Forces of Valor introduce this powerful variant of the American-made whirlwind bird into your collection!
Boeing CH-47 Chinook Designed as a turbine replacement for the Mojave CH-37, the CH-47 was piloted for the first time on September 21, 1961. This iconic helicopter has a long history of service, seen actions in many wars, from Vietnam to Afghanistan. The Chinook is the US Army's heaviest transport helicopter, serving primarily as a troop carrier, with secondary roles including the location of artillery and battlefield replenishment. He has a crew of three and can move 55 troops ready for battle. Its wide loading ramp can be opened in flight for paratroopers, and three cargo hooks can pass through a floor hatch, allowing the Chinook to be used as a flying crane.
