Watch U.S. Army Apache Helicopters Land On A Moving U.S. Navy Ship

November 07, 2016

This is something you don’t get to see everyday, U.S. Army assets on U.S. Navy carriers. To the normal citizen with limited military knowledge and experience, this sight wouldn’t raise any eyebrows. However, for veterans and military knowledgeable citizens, this picture would create an immediate sense of curiosity that must be addressed. Traditionally, U.S. Army and U.S. Navy assets rarely cross paths. The quintessential land-based mammoth unit, the U.S. Army moves its equipment by planes, and once it has set up shop, its operations are mostly exclusively focus and fixed on dry land. Not known as constantly deployed, the U.S. Army moves its assets from the mainland straight to the battlefield.

The U.S. Navy in the other hand is constantly on the move. U.S. Navy units are sea-bound since the very beginning, with periods on dry land of very limited and measured duration. While you would find U.S. Army units on the mainland and the battlefield, U.S. Navy units are normally all over the world. Always on the move, cruising the oceans, touching every corner of the planet. So this video is one of those rarities seldomly seen. U.S. Army Apaches helicopters trying to land on a moving U.S. Navy ship. So you gotta watch it since you won’t get to see this everyday.
