Sikorsky unveils X2 Light Tactical Helicopter Concept
Sikorsky today unveiled its X2 TECHNOLOGY Light Tactical Helicopter (LTH) design at the Army Aviation Association of America annual convention.
The new mockup reflects Sikorsky's concept for potential military application of the high-speed enabling X2 TECHNOLOGY. "These technologies can potentially bring new rotorcraft capabilities that, to date, have been unachievable by the industry," said Sikorsky President Jeffrey P. Pino. "In addition to doubling the speed of helicopters, this technology can improve hot/high performance, maneuverability and low acoustic signature. Sikorsky's Light Tactical Helicopter concept demonstrates a way to package these capabilities into an airframe that is tailored to meet a range of military missions."
The X2 TECHNOLOGY Light Tactical Helicopter multi-mission capabilities will meet both regular U.S. Army and Special Operations future requirements in a variety of combat roles.
