Default Razbam Teasing CH-53 Sea/Super Stallion??

Well came accross this while surfing this morning. Interesting. Very interesting. So, it appears the cat is out of the bag, or the bunny is out of the hole, or something....

...anyway, so I can't really tell from that picture, I would love the Super Sea Stallion, but somehow I doubt we will be getting that, any ideas on which version/variant we will eventually be getting?

This is a nice chopper, which reminds me I really need to reinstall the Huey or Hind, and go for a fly in Normandy.

Fun fact: The CH-53 is designated as a "medium transport helicopter" in the german armed forces, and no, we don't have any heavier helicopter and never had.

That's interesting, did the German Armed Forces also field the CH-53E (Super Stallion). Because according to Wikipedia it actually has 1.8 times the carrying capacity of the "lighter" Ch-53 versions...

This beast has three turbine engines (turboshaft this case), plus the APU. And that's a helicopter...

I can't imagine this is for anything other than an AI asset to support their ships. RAZBAM has a ton on its plate already, adding in yet another module to active development when they've got 5 on this list already, none of those finished, and a sixth on "indefinite hold", seems farfetched to me.
