You're making me revert to my days as a pathfinder! Anyways, the Army is presently recapping these aircraft. They will convert more CHs into MHs and expand the 160th's H-47 role (I believe it adds 1 x battalion of H-47s). If you want, I can try to huntdown new info for the F and G model H-47s, but it'll take a while.
-47 can operate at night and in nearly all weather conditions. The Chinook can accommodate a wide variety of internal payloads, including vehicles, artillery pieces, 33 to 44 troops, or 24 litters plus two medical attendants. The Chinook can be equipped with two door mounting M60D 7.62mm machine guns on the M24 armament subsystem and a ramp mounting M60D using the M41 armament subsystem. The center cargo hook can carry 26k pounds, the fore and aft cargo hooks can carry 17k pounds each (by themselves) or a combined 25k pounds.
-47 is provided with increased fuel capacity, including an aerial refueling capability, upgraded engines, improved terrain following/terrain avoidance radar, and a Forward-Looking Infrared (FLIR) imaging capability for low-level, night, adverse weather insertion and extraction of special operations troops. The MH
-47 has demonstrated superior range, lifting capacity, communications, navigation, and survivability. It can operate from a variety of Navy ships. The MH
-47 is armed with two M134 7.62mm mini guns. The MH
-47s cargo hook strength is not available.
