The U.S. Coast Guard officially assumed responsibility for air intercept operations ... Coast Guard HH-65C helicopters and crews will be responsible for intercepting unauthorized aircraft which fly into an air defense identification zone surrounding Washington.In the Red corner, a 767-200ER: 351,000 lb, cruising speed 530 mph.
In the Blue Corner, HH-65: 9,200 lb, cruising speed 135 KTS max. Weapons ......... ummmm, errrrr, maybe a M240D or 50 cal sniper rifle.
Don't get me wrong, the HH-65 does ITS job very well. This is in the same book, no worse, as having something like a P-3 doing CAS. Please tell me there is something with a "F" in its name doing this as well. Please.
