Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron Nine (HSC-9) "Tridents" is a US navy helicopter squadron whose primary duties comprise support of the main battle group missions, search and rescue operations, vertical replenishment and medical evacuation. To fulfil the tasks the Squadron deploys the MH-60S multi-mission navy helicopter, produced by Sikorsky Aircraft and often referred to as the "Knight Hawk" or "Sea Hawk".
The MH-60S can be transported by aircraft carriers, amphibious assault ships, fast combat support ships and some other vessels. It is equipped with a number of advanced mine detection systems which help identify targets immersed in coastal waters. Besides, the MH-60S is the first US Navy helicopter that features a glass cockpit and four digital monitors transmitting battle information. The armament of the Knight Hawk consists of the M60D, M240 or GAU-17/A machine guns. Its crew usually includes a pilot, a copilot and two tactical flight crew members.
