The Boeing CH-47 Chinook is an American twin-engine, tandem rotor, heavy-lift helicopter developed by American rotorcraft company Vertol and manufactured by Boeing Vertol (later known as Boeing Rotorcraft Systems). The CH-47 is among the heaviest lifting Western helicopters. Its name, Chinook, is from the Native American Chinook people of modern-day Washington state.
The ACH-47A (nicknamed Guns A Go-Go) is a variation of CH-47 Chinook helicopter configured to a gunship role.
The ACH-47 is a vehicle featured in Battlefield Vietnam, operated by the United States Army and the Army of the Republic of Vietnam. It can transport up to 6 players and is heavily armed with a wide range of weaponry, ranging from light machine guns to rocket pods. The Chinook can also airlift any US vehicle, such as the M551 Sheridan or the M151 MUTT. It also has the ability to land and operate from the surface of the water.
Battlefield 2: Modern Combat Edit
The CH-47 Chinook makes a brief appearance in the campaign mode of Battlefield 2: Modern Combat. It is parked in the main hangar of the Almaty airfield, and can be seen during the Almaty Region NATO missions where the airfield is accessible, namely Air Traffic Control and Rolling Thunder. The Chinook is never usable by the player.
Battlefield 3 Edit
- There's a glitch that makes it possible to run up to a Chinook that is taking off and throw a grenade in the back. The grenade will go all the way to the front of the crew compartment, and the force of the explosion will go through the doors separating the crew compartment from the cockpit, killing the pilots and causing the Chinook to crash.
