Video Transcription

Speaker: We're good to go.

Speaker: Roger two, two, on the go.

Speaker: Together with the United States Marine Corps, Sikorsky has pioneered the heavy lift segment for rotary aircraft, beginning with the recovery of downed air vehicles and the transport of heavy weapons. The 53 mission set has since evolved to include non-combat evacuation, maritime interdiction, and gas and oil platform operations among many others, driving an entirely new and expanded set of dramatically increased aircraft requirements.

A totally new design, the Sikorsky CH-53K meets or exceeds all of the Marine Corps' heavy lift replacement requirements. Digital fly-by wire avionics with fully integrated flight and navigation displays, net-centric and tactical data-link integration, correlation, and fusion, three General Electric GE38-1B 7500 shaft horsepower engines, tripling the hot day lift capability versus current heavy lift aircraft at 110 nautical miles. Advanced rotor drive system, including split torque transmission, elastomeric main rotor head, and next generation composite main rotors, advanced directional infrared countermeasures, and three GAU-21 .50 caliber machine guns and redesigned composite air frame significantly increase aircraft and crew survivability. The use of advanced composites and fully integrated digital health and usage monitoring systems increases operational readiness, dramatically reducing direct maintenance and decreasing the per aircraft cost of ownership.

Fully marinized with a large capacity L-palate ready internal cargo bay and independent triple hook external cargo handling system, the CH-53K has a max gross weight of 88,000 pounds and supports the full range of current and emerging Marine Corps mission requirements.

Speaker: [inaudible 02:25] up at 10,000 feet.

Speaker: Three minutes out. LC Hawk coming up at 10 o'clock.

Speaker: Roger. Got it.

Speaker: Hold you fire, sir.

Speaker: Looking good, sir. Free and clear.

Speaker: On the go.

Speaker: [inaudible 03:10] pilot loaded, sir.

Speaker: Takeoff checklist complete.

Speaker: Roger.

Speaker: [inaudible 03:16] sir, zero, zero, and flight. Taxi to duty. On the go.

Speaker: [inaudible 03:25] zero, zero, [inaudible 03:27] tower. Looks like they got another IED down on Highway 1A.

Speaker: Got a SAM. One o'clock. Got a missile launch. Got another one at nine o'clock. [inaudible 03:51] fire. 508 Iron Horse, zero, zero. Enemy contact. [inaudible 03:57]

Speaker: 00508, data received.

Speaker: Targets destroyed. Engaging sand blaster.

Speaker: [inaudible 04:25] coming up, too.

Speaker: The CH-53K delivers significantly increased performance and capability across five key areas: multi-mission flexibility, state-of-the-
art avionics, increased lift, and increased survivability, with decreased cost for fuel and maintenance. The Sikorsky CH-53K heavy lift helicopter is the Marine Corps choice for the 21st century. We pioneer flight solutions that bring people home everywhere, every time.
