Team US101 Delivers Marine One Helicopter Proposal To Navy
If we were only so lucky. A combat proven EH101 helicopter
landed last week at Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR), Patuxent
River (MD) bearing Lockheed Martin's proposal to provide the
president of the United States with a new Marine One helicopter
fleet. The 5,000-page proposal describes the US101 team's technical
solution for a Marine One helicopter. The aircraft delivering the
proposal is one of two Royal Air Force helicopters that served in
Bosnia last year in support of the United Nations security force.
Four countries currently operate 92 aircraft in a variety of
mission roles. The US101 medium-lift platform offered by the US101
team will be an American-built variant of that proven platform.
