Welcome Aboard - So wots the goss on the 53X, are they going to go ahead with it.
I was at Pax River last year doing a photo shoot with the AH1Z and UH1Y and was given a brief about the X model 53 with its new glass cockpit, new trans, composite blades etc and sounds like it will be a whole new machine.
The only downside is the head of some unit was quoted the other day as saying he thinks it doesnt need the new glass cockpit. What do you think.

Hey Dragoon, I spent my enlisted days at Fort Riley and flew a couple of times in a UH-1 over to Leavenworth. I don't remember seeing that much water that would make a difference. Or did you used to be stationed in Hawaii and have to fly to the Big Island all the time like I do in my 60? I did the single engine over water thing in Egypt, not fun at all.
