Lockheed Martin unveiled a European-built Sikorsky BLACK HAWK helicopter at the Farnborough International Airshow, showcasing the types of weapons that can be integrated onto the multirole aircraft.

Armed external wings on either side of the displayed aircraft feature a total of four weapons stations, with launchers for a mix of air-to-ground missiles, a 19-shot Hydra-70 rocket pod, and an FN HERSTAL Belgium manufactured rocket machine gun pod.

For laser designating of a future weapons system as well as intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions, the aircraft's cockpit chin features Lockheed Martin's INFIRNO sensor system.
