As a soldier, getting injured on the battlefield is one of those probabilities one would face. This is why most countries develop technologies to help their war casualties survive injuries sustained during battle.
In this article, we will be taking a look at how the US Army has employed the aid of am armed aircraft to save her wounded soldiers during battle.
The US Army has transformed the fully armed UH-60 Black Hawk into an aircraft for medics in the US military. However, in as much as the air vehicle is used as a mobile health care facility, its lethal weapons are still intact to engage and counterattack while flying wounded soldiers to safety.
