The Marine Corps is working together with Sikorsky to bring down the price of their new CH-53K helicopter. The CH-53K is in production to replace the Corps’ CH-53E helicopters. Although currently, the price is sitting at $95 million per helicopter, it has the potential, due to cost growth, to accumulate to $122 million. The Marine Corps is working to bring this price down with the help of potential foreign buyers, reports The Hills.
