The Boeing CH-47 Chinook medium/heavy lift helicopter was a reliable workhorse for Special Operations Forces (SOF) in Afghanistan. It was used for force deployments, insertion of equipment and resupply. Able to carry three times the number of troops than a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter, Chinooks were regularly used to insert SOF operators on direct action missions, particularly deep into insurgent dominated areas.
