    Me and some friends of mine have been arguing for a bit lately over whether helicopters or jet planes are cooler. I personally believe that helicopters are the cooler vehicle, seeing as they are basically flying swords that have many different applications. They can be used to slay enemies in the battlefield, but they can also help friends out of dangerous situations, like when people fall out of boats or when buildings are on fire.

    Jet Planes, on the other hand, are not as cool as helicopters because they can only be used for violence. Have you ever heard of a plane helping somebody? I haven't. It's always helicopters that help people, not planes.

    What do you think, guys? You all are a bunch of reasonably smart people, I'd like to get you all to weigh in on this debate.

    I think you mean fighter jet, because THIS is a jet plane.

    This is a pretty dumb thread, even for us.

    Helicopters float majestically in the sky. Planes look like winged penises.

    Now if there's one thing you can be sure of, it's that nothing is more powerful than a young boy's wish. Except an Apache helicopter. An Apache helicopter has machine guns AND missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive complement of weaponry, an absolute death machine.

    I LOVE the Apache it's an AWESOME piece of machinery and technology. However, the only air to air kill any helo has is during Gulf Storm when a pair of Apache's came across a damaged Mil Mi-24 Hind, also a BAD ASS helo, and cross strafed the shit out of it to bring the Hind down. So ultimately Jet's have a cooler factor for me as they can take on anything. Plus if a jet/plane has the engine failure it at least has a chance of landing safely, helos.... not so much.

    I don`t necessarily prefer one over the other, but it`s hard to argue with the business end of an A-10.

    I'd much rather crash in a Blackhawk than a plane, considering crash survival was/is a key piece of initial design of the U/MH-60 series. ( Then again I was trained to jump in and out of helicopters under combat conditions so I'm biased- plus the door 240 ( machine gun) is so much fun)

    I choose automobile. There's a version that saves lives (ambulance), transports alot of people to work (bus), goes really fast (alot of them), Crushes other cars (Big Foot), goes back to the future (Delorean), and is most are affordable by normal people.

    Damn dopes on a rope always trying to start a debate ;) . While I don't mind riding in any Helos I lost a few friends when 2 CH-47's, Chinook's for the rest of you, went down in the Mountains of Afgahn due to the air being too thin and hitting a pocket of "dead air". Sooo maybe I'm a bit bias as well. Yea, the 240B or G is fun but I still prefer the M2.

    Its all good I'm not an official dope on a rope. We had a Batt SGM that came straight over from from 2nd Ranger bat at Ft. Lewis and we started doing train the trainer type things. - No badge or ASI.

    No BS- The most intense mission was us taking off from Taji 10k north of Baghdad in December 06 right when the insurgents found a cache of SA-7s and were downing rotary wing aircraft at a rate of like 2 a week for 6-7 weeks.

    I like the sopmod saw or my personal favorite Sopmod EBR. Hell my M-4 was mod'd to match grade and I used match grade 5.56.
