The Black Beanie Brigade!

Moving through the night - swift, silent, deadly - well not THAT deadly. Due to budgetary constraints, unlike the big boys, we are unable to afford nifty black helicopters. Hey, the BBB lives within its means. No major debtload for our outfit!
Our "Silliness Awards". You got to love these people and their ideas. Seriously! They are serious about this stuff. Coming Soon! Our favorite song:
"Mommas Don't Let Your Little Black Beanies Grow Up To Be Big Black Helicopters"
We dare you to say this three times, really fast!
The Facts

Who owns them?

160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment, based in Ft. Cambell, Kentucky, in Hopkinsville, KY. Why black? Its always in style. Only this one military unit gets this particular type of paint for its helicopters.

Protective Coating?

A substance similar to Downy Softener called, "CARC". It is used because it is chemically resistant and non-radar reflective. Unlike the private citizens' protective "Downy" coating, "CARC" does not repel the dreaded lint bunnies. Top secret research is working hard to solve the lint bunny problem. Rest assured your tax dollars are funding this project, but we cannot tell you how many of these dollars go to the project. Its top secret and you don't have a need to know.

Unit's Creation:

To bring to light to the intentional silliness of Self Importance covert, illicit and illegal arm of what was formerly called "Delta Force," which was a branch of 5th Group, Special Forces, and a "reserve" branch called 12th Group, the way special forces was FORMERLY set up. It was operated and funded through CIA and this alliance continues to this day.
