The NCH-47D Chinook testbed helicopter has flown for the first time with the more powerful GE T408 engines of the CH-53K.I wouldn't be surprised if Germany also hops on the French interest for the Chinook, so that both forces will have a joint fleet just like with the joint Franco-German C-130J Super Hercules squadron based at Evreux, France. But I really want to know, how well the CH-47 performs with the GE T408 engines of the CH-53K.
