Is this a new sling load setup?

I've seen all kinds of different setups for sling loading various gear/equipment.  I thought I was familiar with all the tools used to accomplish the task.  Ropes, Wire, Nets...even seen them use lifting beams on ships and construction sites.  WTF am I talking about.  First the pic as seen on the US Army Flickr Page.

Do you see it?  No?  Ok, then check out the pic below with it highlighted...

It's really no big deal, I just like to keep an eye on what Army aviation is up to.

Wonder if this is an attempt to increase both weight (trailer is attached) carried and/or speed while sling loading.
