The Transport Helicopter is equipped with Hydra 70 general-purpose unguided 70 mm (2.75 in) rockets and AGM 114 Hellfire anti-tank guided missiles.
Early on, Blackhawk transport helicopters are the key component of strike teams, arriving at location and deploying soldiers before providing support fire with rockets. As the island slides into chaos, Gunships replace the Blackhawks in their strike team role.
During "Men Like Gods", it is advisable to escape the base by trying to get into the transport helicopter and flying away. You may be able to keep it after the mission. Notable mission appearances include "Biological Imperative", "Things to Come", "Shock and Awe", "The Last Man" and "One Thousand Suns". Transport helicopters are rarely seen flying round in the skies. If you start the mission "Things To Come" and exit to free roam, Gunship Strike Teams will be Gunship helicopters instead. This also applies to the helicopters assaulting a hive.
In Prototype 2, the model used in the first outbreak has been modified to become two variants:
- The first is reminiscent of the model seen in Prototype. A basic setup with two machine guns, as well as two Rocket Launchers.
- The second variant is only encountered in the mission "Project Firehawk". This variant is equipped with the standard machine guns, but instead is outfitted with two highly powerful Thermobaric cannons in place of Rocket Launchers.
- The in game transports bear more resemblance to Direct Action Penetrators (DAP's) a variant of the Blackhawk, designed to carry more weapons and serve in basic fire support and ground attack roles, while retaining the ability to transport troops.
- The UH-60 is not used by the Marines in real life, but rather the Army. The UH-1Y Venom is the Marine's standard issue transport helicopter.
