Aviation Snapshots - MH-53J Pave Low III

The MH-53J Pave Low III heavy-lift helicopter is the largest and most powerful helicopter in the Air Force inventory, and the most technologically advanced helicopter in the world. The Pave Low is equipped with armor plating, a combination of three 7.62mm miniguns or .50 caliber machine guns, and a retractable in-flight refueling probe, as seen here.
