The Eurocopter UH-72 Lakota (ICAO: EC45 / WAKE: LIGHT) is a twin-engine helicopter with a single, four-bladed main rotor. Created in Second Life by Spijkers & Wingtips, the aircraft was based on the real-life Eurocopter UH-72 Lakota manufactured by Eurocopter.

Background

The UH-72 is a militarized version of the Eurocopter EC145 and is built by American Eurocopter division of EADS North America. Initially marketed as the UH-145, the helicopter was selected as the winner of the United States Army's Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) program on 30 June 2006. In October 2006, American Eurocopter was awarded a production contract for 345 aircraft to replace aging UH-1H/V and OH-58A/C helicopters in the U.S. Army and Army National Guard fleets.

Spijkers & Wingtips's Eurocopter UH-72 comes in two versions - a combat and a medevac variant. Between them, the UH-72 is equipped with working winch with dual harness and rescue basket, anti-tank Hellfire and air-to-air Stinger missiles, working lighting, and doors. Like all S&W helicopters, the aircraft uses an incremental collective/cyclic flight system and is fully modifiable.
