A downsizing trend is squeezing out a critical component of the United States Navy's successful warfare capabilities. But no replacement has matched the MH-53E helicopter far lift capacity, range, and airborne mine countermeasures ability. Logistics is critical to an army or navy. The Navy recognizes the concept, as demonstrated by its vast supply corps, combat logistics fleet, the Military Sealift Command, logistic aircraft, and strategically located overseas bases. Although the Navy has a 600-ship infrastructure supporting fewer than 300 ships, certain components of that infrastructure are necessary regardless of total ships in commission.
