What a coincidence, I used to be one of those nasty men in camo - loved sitting in the door, feet haning out, with only a sling rope tied around my waist and secured to a tie down on the floor keeping me and my usually 100+ pound ruck from exiting before the aircraft had come to a complete stop! During 8-years of mil service and numerous hops, other than Chinooks and MH-6, I never saw a helo that had seats in the back. Sort of related, but I always get a kick out seeing movies where the actors are being transported in various military rotor-wing aircraft and usually are shown sitting on comfy seats. Also, there always seems to be a scene in which key characters are portrayed holding a normal conversation (sans headsets) in the back of something like a UH-1, UH/MH-60 (with the doors open), or even on the pallets above the skids outside the fuselage of an MH-6!
I wouldn't call the stretched canvas torture devices in the Black Hawk and in the $hithook 'comfy'.
OK, now it's personnal. I resemble that remark!
Actually, if you had to spend the night in the field, we would fold the seat backs down and sleep on the seat backs. We called it the Boeing Hilton. Sleeps six very comfortably.
