Are there any eco friendly helicopters in the military?

    Earlier this year the Navy did successfully run an MH-60S Seahawk on a mixture of conventional fuel and algae-derived fuel. Technically, though, there was nothing eco friendly about the helicopter itself, since the fuel was designed for use in any conventional engine with no need for modifications.  This means that a great number of military vehicles could be run on greener fuel at a relatively low cost.  This flight is part of a general trend in the US military towards greener practices.  So far green principles have primarily been applied to buildings, in the form of more efficient lighting, better insulation, solar panels, etc. But in recent years the Navy and Air Force have shown a strong commitment to research into biofuels to power their air- and oceancraft.
