We can bring double the ordnance, We can extend 20 to 30 percent on both the range and the fly time, For a time on station for a ground commander. The biggest change again is in the sensor capability we have, the standoff, And our ability to mitigate a threat without entering in to its
I’m Capt. Mugnainii, I’m with HMLA-367, I’m a huey pilot. The purpose of the flight line during ITX is to basically support all the infantry units, all the guys on the ground. Units involved with the MAG, so HMLA-367 is a skid squadron, mixed sections of cobras and hueys. We have HMH, CH-53s. I think

Probably
Now we’ll have the world’s most advanced helicopter with the world’s best trained Marines. And so whenever a mission needs to get done, they’ll have confidence knowing that the best of the best are going to be the ones that are doing it now.
Being forward deployed has a much smaller margin for errors than we do in garrison. We spent workups and garrison training to build qualifications and flexibility into our plan, and that was while if we didn’t make mission no one died, so we had a little bit of room to breathe. Once we’re deployed, we’re
