Sikorsky-Boeing Submits Early Proposal To Army

Defiant X Is Similar To Black Hawk, Affordable Price

On September 7th,  the Sikorsky-Boeing team released a statement on the early submittal of the proposal for Defiant X for the U.S. Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft.

The aircraft was designed for the U.S. Army’s Future Long Range Air Assault competition. This statement can be accredited to Paul Lemmo, president, Sikorsky, and to Mark Cherry, vice president and general manager, Vertical Lift, Boeing Defense, Space & Security:

“Continuing a 75-year partnership with the US Army, providing and sustaining the iconic Black Hawk, Chinook and Apache, the Sikorsky-Boeing team looks to the future with the Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft - Defiant X. Today, Team Defiant completed and submitted the proposal for the U.S. Army’s FLRAA competition, offering low-risk, transformational capability that delivers on an Army critical modernization priority and advances the future of Army aviation. Defiant X delivers speed where it matters, survivability, unsurpassed power, maneuverability, superior handling in any environment and lower lifecycle costs – while operating in the same footprint as the Black Hawk. We are confident that Defiant X, supported by our longstanding Army industrial base suppliers, is the best choice for delivering overmatch on the Multi-Domain Operational battlefield in INDOPACOM and across the globe.”

According to the companies, The Defiant X offers high-speed performance while retaining traditional helicopter agility and maneuverability, at an excellent price point.

Defiant X operates similarly to the Black Hawk, specifically including the manufacturing techniques the Army has come to expect, minimizing training time and costs.
