With the new version of K-Max, Kaman intends to develop a dual technology capable of meeting civilian and military needs. Kaman Aerospace exchanges with the US Marine Corps to best meet the needs of the armed forces. The industrialist already collaborated with this army corps. The K-Max has been used in Afghanistan, for example, where it has delivered more than 2 million kilos of equipment. The current aircraft is able to lift a payload of over 2,700 kilos, which is more than the helicopter's empty weight.
