Need Info for Book


I am writing a book and want to be accurate. In the book, there is a short section where a team of 7. Two pilots drop off and pick up 5 troops with a Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk. I want the Black Hawk to be equipped with the advanced weapon system to allow pilots to identify and engage static or moving targets with forward firing guns, rockets and laser-designated air-to-ground missiles. My questions are:
1) What model Black Hawk should be used?
2) How does the pilot aim the guns? Can it be with a helmet?
3) Does the pilot shoot the guns with a center console mission grip?
4) For the laser guided missiles, does the co-pilot keep a laser on the target and then fire a missile from a center console mission grip?

Thank you very much for your response. I really just want to be accurate.
