currently right now Boeing is offering the CH-47F and Sikorsky with the CH-53K
many companies in Germany as well as the Army and somewhat the Government, is really eyeing the CH-47F because Boeing promised 10 different companies to help maintain, build and deliver the Chinooks for the Army, while Sikorsky is only teaming up with Rheinmetall for the bid.
however, even if Sikorsky fails in the CH-53G/GA replacement, our Navy is highly interested in the MH-60R as a replacement for the Lynx and again teaming up with Rheinmetall.
I believe Boeing will end up winning this contract, while Sikorsky will win the new Naval Helicopter project just to keep both parties happy.

Sounds, like a Plan. Keep us updated!
