"SCU8 system capabilities include the addition of Helmet Mounted Integrated Targeting (HMIT), Small Diameter Bomb (SDB), the AIM-120D missile variant and Center Display Unit (CDU) Integration. SCU9 capabilities include finishing HMIT and CDU integrations, support of Threat Symbology/Correlation (TS/C) file import (commonality with F-16 Block 40/50) and the addition of the Laser JDAM." Page 17 Sound like major updates to me :)

REPOSTish
Hello,

I'm looking for an F-16 driver who dropped ordnance in support of an Army HH-60M Blackhawk on a MEDEVAC mission to get an Air Force 5 January, 2016 in Marjah, Afghanistan. So far, I've failed. I can give additional details, but the Airman that the mission was for, SrA Ryan Rynkowski, was saved, but in the process, a Soldier, SSG Matthew McClintock, lost his life. I'd like to thank the pilot of that aircraft and there are a few other people who would like to as well. People in the Air Force have told me that it shouldn't be a problem and that they could square me away but...here I am.

I'd appreciate any help anyone can offer.

CW3 Kyle Straker
Tactical Operations Officer
F/1-214th AVN REGT
"Cheating Hookers" MEDEVAC
