CH-53K is a mess right now.
V-22 is too big and won't do what they want the medium and light FVL.
Also, with the exception of the Chinook (and possibly the new mega ultra Sea King, I haven't seen the numbers) all those things absolutely suck hot and high, which you might have noticed is where the Army currently finds itself in combat.
The Army rotorcraft fleet has no relevant role to play in the Pacific, regardless of range.
