Boeing is proposing the CH-47F to the German armed forces as a replacement to the CH-53G/GA fleet. the total requirement is for 40-70 new helicopters to replace the older CH-53G/GA model helicopters. Boeing also teamed up 7 local German companies: AERO-Bildungs GMBH, Aircraft Philipp, CAE Elektronik GMBH, COTESA, Diehl Defence, Liebherr-Aerospace and Reiser Simulation and training GMBH to build parts for the CH-47F, as well as being contractors to maintain Germany's potential fleet. also Boeing is allowing Germany to install Rohde &Schwarz's software defined airborne radio which will provide tailorable encryption, frequency hopping, agility and excellent voice and data connectivity. The German officials and other company owners complained that Sikorsky's CH-53K was not doing enough for German companies, (since Sikorsky was only teaming up Rheinmetall) which is giving Boeing the better chance of winning.

is the MKS-180 still planned or has it been canceled?
MKS-180 is still planned, ships should start construction in 2023. orginially the contract was for 4 Ships, but now they increased it to 6 but because of the wait, the defence minister decided to order 5 more Braunschweig class corvettes as a gap filler until the MKS-180s are ready.
