    The USMC ordered 200 CH-53K production aircraft (including the four SDTA aircraft) to stand up 8 active duty, 1 reserve and 1 training squadron to replace the CH-53E Super Stallion.
    First helicopter, SDTA #3, delivered for trials and testing on May 2018. Next 12, known as Low Rate Initial Production (LRIP) Lot 2 and 3, scheduled for 2022.
