25px-Disambig.png This article is about the Chinook in the Tiberium universe. For other Chinooks, see Chinook.

The CH-47 Chinook was a versatile transport helicopter used by GDI and Nod during the First Tiberium War.

Due to possible legal reasons over the Chinook name owned by Boeing Defense, Space & Security, the unit is renamed to transport helicopter in Command & Conquer: Remastered. References to Chinook are kept on this wiki.

Background[edit | edit source]

The contra-rotating rotors eliminated the need for an anti-torque vertical rotor, allowing all power to be used for lift and thrust. Its top speed of 170 knots (196 mph, 315 km/h) was faster than 1960s, and even many contemporary, utility and attack helicopters. Its primary roles included troop movement, artillery emplacement and battlefield resupply. There is a wide loading ramp at the rear of the fuselage and three external-cargo hooks.

Chinooks first saw extensive use during Second World War by both Allied and Soviet as infantry transports and ordnance delivery units. After the Second World War, they remained in service of the Global Defense Initiative and Brotherhood of Nod during First Tiberium War, which overhauled their design and made them even more powerful, capable of delivering tanks to the battlefield. Due to cost cutting measures to keep Chinooks cheap enough for battlefield construction, they could only carry a maximum of 5 soldiers.

Legacy[edit | edit source]

After the First Tiberium War, the CH-47 and the CH-46 were decommissioned in favor of the Orca Transports. Nod however had decommissioned these units completely.
