For anyone interested in the strap-on stealth features tested on the H-60 Black Hawk back in the very late 80s this article is for you: The Drive > Stealthy Black Hawk Helicopter

A friend of mine and fellow modeler at Fort Campbell was a crew chief on one of the EH-60 Black Hawks adorned with this stuff.  While I had the security clearance, I did not have the "Need To Know" to be "read on" to the program so all I had to was the verbal description and my imagination to go on as to what it looked like on the aircraft.  Now all of these years later, we have an image and it looks pretty much like I had imagined it to be.  Kind of chunky-clunky and an obvious maintenance obstacle for the maintainers of the aircraft.
