    Since its essentially an anti-tank missile, its will slice yhrough armor, the entry point will be a small hole, but it will turn the inside into an inferno with red hot metal, flames and shrapnel shredding and burning everyone inside. The other vehicle/ship may not be sinking, but no one is alive inside.

    They should have bought these instead of the Polish SOKOL choppers, considering the Presidential Airlift Wing had 2 Blackhawks since Marcos regime...

    PHL Air Force Black Hawk pilots to train in United States – Mintfo


    The training of Philippine Air Force (PAF) pilots who will operate the 16 Black Hawk helicopters to be acquired from Lockheed Martin Sikorsky will be carried out in Florida, United States, National Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said on January 16 during the plenary discussion on DND’s 2019 budget.

    The defense chief made the statement when asked by Senator JV Ejercito regarding the training materials and trainors. “Since [the manufacturer is] Sikorsky, will this already be in English? I assume that these (manuals) will not be in Polish,” Ejercito said.

    Though built in Poland, the S-70i Black Hawk helicopters will be certified by US-based Lockheed Martin Sikorsky.

    Lorenzana added that PAF wants delivery to start in six months after the contract signing.

    “According to the manufacturer, they can produce the whole lot in two years time, but what our Air Force want is once the contract is signed they want deliveries in the next six months – even just couple of choppers to be delivered, maybe monthly thereafter until the whole lot is delivered,” he said.
