What COTs/GOTs "light helicopters" are transportable in a C-17III and can be quickly equipped for military operations?

DSIAC was tasked with compiling a list of light helicopters that are transportable on a Boeing C-17III Globemaster aircraft and can be equipped for a variety of military operations. Desired qualities include the ability to fit a fleet of four or more aircraft in the transport and that the helicopters are either commercial or government off-the-shelf (COTS/GOTS) equipped with a simple but proven intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) package. DSIAC compiled information on helicopter models, manufacturers, and the dimensions of the helicopters that met the inquirer’s requirements.
