United States Marine Corps

Creating an immersive, virtual training experience for CH-53E helicopter pilots

The Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion is the largest and heaviest helicopter in the United States military. It has the distinctive duty of providing heavy lifting and transport capabilities for both the United States Marine Corps and Navy.

The CH-53E Super Stallion is one of the few helicopters in the world configured with 3 gas turbine engines and inflight refueling capabilities, giving it an indefinite flying range. While a typical load would be a 16,000lb howitzer or a 26,000lb light armored vehicle, the helicopter also carries personnel and can retrieve a downed aircraft, including another CH-53E.
