Marine One replacement

The Navy is to announce their selection today. More is at stake than just the 20 plus fleet of Marine One helicopters. The selection will also most likely be the Marine Corps and USAF medium lift helicopter for the next 25 years or more. The Marines in particular are in urgent need of a replacement for their aged CH-46 medium lift helicopters. While there are significant political considerations to respect I hope the Marines are given what they need.
