Do you recommend any good book about the CH53?

I already read this... it is good and interesting, but very short!!!

I would recommend On a Steel Horse I Ride. It is a complete history of Pave Low. We adopted the Bon Jovi song as our anthem so that’s where we get the book title.

Here is link to a you tube video that one of our guys did at the end of it all.

Pretty goddamn scary stuff I bet. It is neat to look back on something and see how your training kinda takes over in a situation that for the uninitiated would be "froze up" terrifying.

I like Ch-53 and other Helicopters, especially hope DCS have more support aircrafts, including not combat helicopter.
Only hope is If any team want to make new helicopter for DCS, please make helicopter based on DCS standard, I call it " DCS helicopter standard".
After I left SU-27 flank many years later, I came back to DCS by seeing a video clip, that is the preview video of DCS black shark. In that video a cold&dark Ka-50's blades were blow and react to the wind.
Till now, to myself, I believe helicopters in DCS are closest to reality, meanly because that preview.
I don't know it is true or not, but I think ED use a pretty advanced air dynamic engine. And that is why DCS's helicopters are so real and react to air.
Hope all helicopters use the same engine, I call it "DCS helicopter air dynamic engine" and reach same standard.
I think Helicopters in DCS are the best in flight simulation world.
before DCS blackshark I fly helicopter also in FSX and other simulation. After DCS, specially after Mi-8 and UH-1 in DCS, I have no interest to fly helicopters in other FS.
RAZBAM did great job in before projects, I like RAZBAM aircrafts. Hope RAZBAM team make good helicopter like CH-53 or .....
Thank you!

For what it's worth, I was kind of hoping part of the RAZBAM surprise would be a heavy chopper, or a heavy anything for that matter, but a CH-53 would have been aces with the Tarawa (once it can handle choppers).

Transporting Troops is a combat function, especially if they are making a hot landing! Combat Search & Rescue is also a combat function. Weapons like the minigun would be on the ramp of the CH-53.

Even a Chinook could open up some cool gameplay, especially with the new water.

I would probably buy it. A heavier lifter than the uh1 would make a welcome module.

However that would likely be contingent on progress in other (early access) releases made.
