As the title says....Sikorsky's small helicopter submission to the US Army flew today in Huntsville.

That thing looks S L E E K.

I know nothing about helicopters but have always been fascinated with them and flying them.

Any thoughts on this beast ....

The Raider X looks impressive. However it is relatively wide, a step back compared to the narrow Apache.

Neat. It looks like someone put a Blackhawk in the dryer.

No matter what, it’s old and slow, but I still love the Huey, the sound of it coming in is just a special kind of music you can’t get out of your head.

Cue the AF getting butt-hurt because the Army is getting a pusher chopper. Perhaps, like the AH-56, this will make the AF take CAS seriously and keep the A-10 flying.

A-10 Re-winging Complete Will Keep the Warthog in the Air Until Late 2030s
