U.S. Aerospace is Back and Wants to Offer Chinese Chopper as New Marine One

by John Reed on February 4, 2011

In case you didn’t see this earlier, U.S. Aerospace is back. You know, the shady company that was disqualified from bidding in the Air Force’s $35 billion KC-X contest with Antonov-based designs. Now they’re apparently teaming with China’s state-owned Aviation Industry Corporation to bid on the Marines’ VXX presidential helicopter replacement effort.

Apparently, they’re going to offer China’s knock-off of the half century-old Super Frelon (pictured above) as a replacement for the half century-old Sea Kings that are currently flown as Marine One.

Yup, this one will go far.

Let’s see how they get disqualified from bidding this time.
