A CH-53K "King Stallion" conducts an external lift of a 4,000 pound concrete block at Marine Corps Outlying Field Camp Davis, North Carolina, Feb. 3, 2021. Marine Operational Test and Evaluation Squadron One (VMX-1) tested the CH-53K’s heavy lifting capabilities in order to enhance their skills and proficiency with cargo movement and operations. The CH-53K will replace the CH-53E “Super Stallion,” which has served the Marine Corps for 40 years, and will transport Marines, heavy equipment and supplies during ship-to-shore movement in support of amphibious assault and subsequent operations ashore.
