Abstract:

The United States Marine Corps heavy-lift is extremely relevant to its 21st century warfighting plan. Using Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare, Operational Maneuver From the Sea, Ship to Objective Maneuver, and Seabasing, the Marine Corps future depends a great deal on the capabilities of the CH-53 and the amount of logistical support it can give to the Marine on the ground. The CH-53s modernization is essential to achieving that goal.
