The US Department of Defense (DoD) is looking to address ongoing problems with the Sikorsky CH-53K King Stallion's main gearbox (MGB) by sourcing an alternate supplier.
If it was just a numbers issue they would have used the word additional not alternate. This appears to be more of the Navy has lost confidence in the ability of Sikorsky to fix and produce their own transmission.
