Promising American heavy transport helicopter CH-53K King Stallion for the first time transported an armored vehicle on the external sling. According to Defense Aerospace, the aim of the tests was not only to check the helicopter itself, but also the new armored vehicle of the JLTV project, which in the future will have to partially replace the obsolete HMMWV in the troops.


The newest American helicopter for the first time raised the armored vehicle


During the tests that took place on 18 on January 2018 of the year, but the details of which were revealed only now, the CH-53K helicopter raised the JLTV armored vehicle weighing 8,6 tons to the height of 30 meters, went into the hover mode for ten minutes, then lowered the armored car and unfastened the fastening cables.

King Stallion, the largest US helicopter, has a maximum take-off weight of 39,9 tons. The machine can carry loads of up to 12,2 tons on an external load. The combat radius of the helicopter is about 200 kilometers. The CH-53K, equipped with three GE38-1B engines, is capable of speeds up to 315 kilometers per hour.

The world's largest heavy transport helicopter, mass-produced, is the Russian Mi-26T. The maximum take-off weight of the car is 56 tons. A helicopter can carry loads of up to 20 tons or up to 85 fighters. The Mi-26T is capable of speeding up to 295 kilometers per hour, and its range with a maximum load is 475 kilometers, reports "N + 1".

              almost all US transport helicopters can do this. Increases flight range by itself. Especially relevant when performing tasks over the sea or in desert areas, where there is nowhere to sit and refuel on land.

          Speed ​​and range are higher. By the way, about speed, it’s especially interesting: how did they attach such a truck? Our combat men don’t fly like that and are only going to invent a “super-fast” helicopter with the same cruising speed.

    "..Each such a helicopter costs $ 138,5 million, it is more expensive than the F-35 fighter, which is already known for its fabulous price .."
    “200 of these machines will cost $ 31 billion. Between March 2016 and April 2017, the price of helicopters rose by 6,9%, and customers were notified about this only at the last moment. Now everyone is worth $ 138,5 million, although another year back they cost 131,2 million. More than a quarter of the price was for new research and development of new technologies. For example, the latest F-35 fighter with a vertical take-off now costs $ 122,8 million. "

    The development of the multi-functional N-53 family began in October 1960, when the US Marine Corps announced its intention to replace its Sikorsky HR2S-1 with a new decked heavy landing helicopter.
    The first helicopter from a batch of 16 serial SN-53A arrived in September 1965 at the 463rd squadron of heavy helicopters of the Marine Corps at the Santa Ana Air Base, California.

    It is not quite true to compare ch53k with mi26. According to its characteristics, it is more likely an analogue of mi6 as well as its land counterpart ch47 and the developing ahl. The main feature of ch53 is that it is a deck helicopter, unlike the mentioned machines.

      How does it differ from the Mi-6 as a "deck"? And Mi-6s were landing on the same deck! I can not insert a photo. Although I’m an old hacker, the keyword is old!

        We have both mi8 and mi6 practiced landing on the deck, I absolutely agree with you. The Americans, I think, also practiced landing on the deck (if necessary) ch47. But the "land hunters" in the first place can only land on the deck, but then return to their base, because they cannot be thrown into the below-deck hangar. In the best case, they will continue the hike as a cargo) Secondly, the chassis of the deck machines are adapted for landing on a ship under rolling conditions, the chassis of land vehicles are designed without taking this factor into account.
        The ch53 family is a permanent deck-based car, like our Kamov cars. Here is a photo of ch53e with a folded beam and blades. If you pay attention to the photo in the text of the article, then consider the bold black line in the area of ​​transition between the tail and end beams - this is the loop of the swivel joint.
