The Danish Air Force has released an incredible footage which more looks like a video game than like a real-life action. The Danish Air Force is conducting a testing drives of their new Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk helicopters which are subjected to the various tests in the extreme conditions of the North Atlantic Ocean.

They had the unenviable task of test-flying the choppers in “wild” conditions to find out whether they could cope and to push it to its limits. The video shows a landing of the Seahawk on a Danish Navy patrol vessel in choppy waters around the Faroe Islands, halfway between Norway and Iceland in the North Atlantic Ocean.

Despite strong swells, powerful gales, and crashing waves the Danish pilots manage to expertly guide the helicopter down on the back of the patrol vessel without any mishap. The Danish Air Force ordered nine MH-60R Seahawks in 2012. So far, they have received a three of them. The remaining choppers will be delivered in 2018. The total cost of the machines, plus logistical support, is reportedly $686 million.

It’s a lot harder to shoot when your heart is racing and you are breathing heavy, which is far more realistic than just bench shooting.
