The Coming of the CH-53K to the Israeli Defence Force

By Robbin Laird

The CH-53K comes into the USMC and into the Israeli Defence Force as both are in the process of transformation.

The two forces are on different transformation paths with different adversaries as focal points, but this platform is coming to both forces as they are working new ways to operate and evolving their concepts of operations.

And the two forces clearly interact with one another and will certainly cross-learn thereby taking lessons being learned about using the new aircraft as they shape their evolving concepts of operations approaches.
