New Air Lift

Post by Slash78 »

I don't know if you have the "CH-53X" yet. I guess it is a fairly new program to increase the lifting power of the current CH-53 Sea Stallion, as well as increase there range of operations.

Also, there is some talk about developing a four-engined tilt rotor aircraft, possible as a replacement/supplement for the C-130. It would also be needed to operate with the proposed "Sea Bases" the US Navy is looking into (and the US Army increasing as well). One figure thrown around was a lift capacity of 50,000 lbs.

I had the US101, but thanks for the link.

I've made note of the CH-53X. I had intentions to have a future version of the CH-53 so that will work well.
