    RHEINMETALL JOINS WITH SIKORSKY ON THE CH-53K OFFER [(Germany)]

    Lockheed said in an emailed statement to Reuters that it had chosen Rheinmetall as its “lead teammate” for the bid because of the German company’s “wealth of experience and knowledge.”

    It said it would name other German partners in coming weeks.

    “The goal is to offer German military forces as a comprehensive solution that includes the CH-53K helicopters as well as additional services in maintenance, service, training and program support,” Rheinmetall said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

    Rheinmetall Chief Executive Armin Papperger said the team would offer “the best possible state-of-the-art aircraft for the German Air Force as successor for the legacy CH-53G fleet.”

    Leonardo reveals new ‘weapons-wing’ for Lynx Wildcat
    I can only imagine what detrimental effect that's going to have on hovering performance. The chord of the wing looks enormous, two big flate plates interfering with the downwash.

    Oddly the article doesn't mention the advantages. I suppose it generates lift to help offset the weight of weapons, but why not use a lighter extended pylon? Basically just the spar of that wing.
