Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron 15 poster art.
Helicopter Mine Countermeasures Squadron 15 (HM-15) is a United States Navy helicopter squadron based at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia. Nicknamed the “Blackhawks” and flying the MH-53E “Sea Dragon”, it is staffed by both active duty and reserve personnel. It is the sister squadron to HM-14, the “Vanguard”, based a half-mile away at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia. HM-15 is the first U.S. Navy squadron to combine and consolidate training requirements between the USN and the USNR. Changes here had ripple effects all the way up to the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) as instructions were researched and updated. The Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low series is a long-range combat search and rescue (CSAR) helicopter. The series was upgraded from the HH-53B/C, variants of the Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion. The HH-53 “Super Jolly Green Giant” was initially developed to replace the HH-3 “Jolly Green Giant”. The helicopters later transitioned to Special Operations missions.
