The first serial. US Marine Corps replenished with the latest "Stallion"


King Stallion is a heavy transport helicopter with a maximum take-off weight of almost 40 tons. The machine is capable of carrying over 13 tons of cargo on an external sling, and can accommodate up to 55 passengers in its internal compartment. The crew of the helicopter is from two to five people - in addition to the pilots, it can include three arrows to provide all-round protection.

The maximum flight range of the CH-53K is 840 km, the speed is 315 km / h. The helicopter is equipped with active and passive protection systems - in particular, the armored hull protects the crew and passengers from small-arms fire weapons, and active protection systems can protect the machine from damage by missiles. In total for the Marines plan to buy about two hundred of these machines. In addition, CH-53K helicopters are interested in Israel and Germany.

Externally, King Stallion is not much different from its predecessor CH-53E, but at the same time it is three times “stronger” than it. CH-53K King Stallion is a continuation of the CH-53 line, which is available from 1964 onwards. The new modification is the largest and most powerful in the Stallion family (English Stallion - stallion).

In March last year, the US KMP received a pre-production test sample from Sikorsky, and now a serial copy, fully operational, has entered service.

      Congratulations to the US Marines with a new thing !!! In the near future, our Air Force should make a choice between the same machine and the latest version of Chinook

        Buy better Russian. It is cheaper and better. Simple arithmetic calculations give the unconditional victory of the Mi-26: the Russian machine surpasses the CH-53K in almost all respects.

            But, at the price of one American helicopter, you can buy five Russian, and for the delivery of another combat training aircraft Yak-130.

              It is necessary to buy weapons that increase the likelihood of survival of our soldiers. The probability of surviving on the Stallion is higher than on the Mi-26. If we were talking about the purchase of helicopters for civilian purposes, the purchase of the Mi-26, perhaps, would be appropriate ...

                What kind of kindergarten? According to your requirements, the Mi-26 will be equipped with a nuclear reactor and it will still be cheaper! But the Americans will never go for it, it’s a direct dependence on the enemy, which they so diligently expose us. So do not tell us tales about super helicopters.

      Maybe you wanted to say Mi-26? Then for your information - the Mi-26 can accommodate 82 paratroopers with weapons, carrying capacity up to 20 tons of payload. For comparison, the CH-53E Super Stallion - 55 paratroopers with a carrying capacity of 13,6 tons in the cargo compartment, and 14,5 tons on the external sling. Well, which should be in demand? And 40 tons is the take-off weight.

        for my information, I had in mind MI6, both cars in one segment 40 tons, mi 26 is another niche and redundant if you forgot the Indian contract, where mi26 flew by. I don't need to tell, Mi6 is the beginning of my working career, mi26 is somewhere in 89 they began to repair, on our repair shop. So why do I, each car has its own niche, like mi8 or chinook, mi6 was a very popular car like mi10

          Something a bit late began to repair the old man at "your rembase". Nevertheless, it began to be produced in 1959, and since 1963 went into production. Stopped releasing if I'm not mistaken in 1980. So what kind of niches are you talking about. Compare the old Soviet helicopter with the new American?

            you are not careful, mi26 began to be repaired with us, and mi6, here is the history of the rembase under the USSR in 1946, the aircraft workshops were renamed the 224th aircraft repair base (224 ARB) with a deployment in Konotop [4].

            In 1959-1960, overhaul of aircraft engines was mastered at an aircraft repair base [3]. The first type of aircraft engine, which the plant mastered overhaul, was the NK-12 aircraft engine for the An-22 [4].

            In 1963, the 224th aircraft repair base was transformed into the 535th aircraft repair plant of the USSR Ministry of Defense.

            In 1964, the plant began to master the repair of Mi-family helicopters [3], this year the overhaul and repair of the Mi-6 helicopter was mastered [4].

            By 1970, the plant mastered the overhaul of Mi-6, Mi-10 helicopters and their modifications [4].

            In 1976, the plant mastered the overhaul of Mi-24 combat helicopters [3].

            In 1989, the plant mastered the repair of the Mi-26 helicopter [3].

                a very long time, there is no longer HF21653, now it is AVIAKON, 25-26 cars a month came in for repair, I mean 24k, less MI6 and in Afghanistan they were beaten

      By your logic, then the Russians should say thanks to Mil. Kurchatov, Korolev ... And then without them nothing would have happened. So? If you are hinting at the emigration of Sikorsky, then you need to create conditions for bright minds, and not to drive behind the neck for dissent.

    hi If we compare the three-engine King Stallion with its predecessor helicopter CH-53E Super Stallion, then the parameters of both helicopters are similar. However, the fuel consumption of the CH-53K is less. At the same time, his combat load increased by more than three times. A helicopter can carry cargo weighing up to 27000 pounds (12,25 tons) over a distance of more than 203 km, in hot climates.
    The advantages of the CH-53K helicopter include an advanced glass cabin; electro-remote control systems; rotor blades of the 4th generation with a negative deviation of the profile of the rotor blades in the end part; more powerful engine; high survival rate; increased reliability; operational and repair manufacturability, suitability for long-term operation, etc.
    Under the U.S. Department of Defense Program, the U.S. ILC expects to receive 200 CH-53K helicopters, which will be distributed between 8 combatant units, one training and one reserve squadron to meet their operational needs.

    The Russian school of helicopter engineering is clearly visible, which is not surprising in terms of using Russian ideas. The USA has always been the first.
