USS John P. Murtha Flight by Lance Cpl. Israel Chincio (plus a question for aviation guys..)

Quick question for aviation guys.  The UH-1Y and AH-1Z I know are legacy designs, but why haven't they been given wheels for ease of shipboard movement?

A know that there was a massive upgrade proposal for the AH-64 for Marine Corps use that didn't include why didn't this ever make it over to the upgrade for the UH-1Y and AH-1Z.  I know its a little thing but its noticeably different from every other navalized helicopter and a throwback to the birth of these helicopters that I thought would have been banished  an easy design modification.
