    Yes, BERP III was used on production Lynx and the technology further developed into BERP IV used on the EH-101.

        The final requirements would probably only emerge closer to actual program start but broadly they are looking at a 2X increase in combat range and 2X increase in cruise speed compared to the crafts they intend on replacing (Apache is one of them). A trade space of around 240-300 Knots has been mentioned in the past for the program.


        For the JMR-TD precursor to FVL, the US Army has laid down a number of key performance parameters for the competing designs. In terms of speed, the service stipulated in its 2012 Broad Area Announcement a performance of more than 230 kt while carrying 12 fully equipped troops.

        Powered by the Lycoming/Honeywell T55 engine, the SB>1 Defiant is expected to fly at up to 250 kt, while, as the designation suggests, the General Electric GE T-64-powered V-280 Valor is said by Bell to top-out at 280 kt. While both demonstrators will be fitted with current-generation powerplants (the T55 drives the Boeing CH-47 Chinook while the T-64 does the same for the Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion), both will likely benefit from the Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP). ITEP and Future Affordable Turbine Engine (FATE) programmes are now underway.

        Old radar types never die; they just phased array

              Put anti-gravity tech on it and you have a flying saucer.

                Why would you put anti gravity technology on something that have wings?

                          That rotor system has been seen already somewhere else.

                                  Netherlands secures additional Chinooks

                                  Under the current multi-year buy, the US Army ordered 12 CH-47Fs last year as part of an effort to replace the Dutch CH-47Ds. The recent contract award adds two more Chinooks for the Dutch, raising the total new aircraft purchased to 14, a Boeing spokesman says in an email to FlightGlobal.

                                        OPINION: Norway H225 crash probe raises troubling questions

                                        https://www.flightglobal.com/news/ar...ing-qu-436887/

                                        The frankly startling revelation that parts sourced from one of two suppliers have a failure rate three times as high as the alternative is troubling; that no one thought to analyse this data before last years Norway crash is almost beyond belief.
