A promotional video released by EADS North America showcases the capabilities of the UH-72A Lakota. The UH-72A is a utility helicopter that has entered U.S. Army and Army National Guard service and fulfills a variety of missions such as security and support, MEDEVAC, and counter-narcotics operations. UH-72A also participated in the disaster response to Hurricane Sandy and to the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma. The video also spotlights the array of equipment that enhances the capabilities of the UH-72A, such as the L3 Westcam MX-15i EO/IR sensor system, Sierra Nevada data downlink, twin Cobham RT-5000 radios, and a high capacity hoist. The UH-72A is considered a candidate to replace the venerable and iconic UH-1N Twin Huey in U.S. Air Force service.
