Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk

This four-bladed, twin-engine, medium-lift utility helicopter is arguably the most popular combat aircraft in the world. It was the focal point of the hit film and book 'Black Hawk Down.' Used extensively in the United States Army, this legendary chopper has also served several armed forces all over the world, including Taiwan's. Even today the demand for Black Hawks is very high by militaries around the world.

CH-47 Chincook

This twin-engine, tandem rotor heavy-lift helicopter can travel at speeds of up to 315 kmh. Currently used by the United States Army, Japan and the Royal Netherlands Air Force, the unit price of this helicopter is a staggering $35 million. It also happens to be one of the longest serving choppers in modern combat history--it was first used way back in 1962!
