Boeing HH-47H Chinook

The HH-47, a variant based on the special operations aircraft MH-47G, was selected by the USAF as the winner of the Combat Search and Rescue ( CSAR-X ) competition on November 2006 in procure of 141 aircraft to replace its ageing fleet of HH-60G Page Hawks. Four HH-47 prototypes were to be built with expected initial deliveries by 2012. However, in February 2007 the contract award was protested and the Government Accountability Office (GAO) ordered the CSAR-X project to be re-bid.

In 2010, the USAF has decided to buy 112 Sikorsky UH-60M (as HH-60W) instead, despite a standing requirement for a larger helicopter
