Maneuvering with speed and agility at low levels can make a world of difference for soldiers flying into and out of small or contested landing zones, and #DEFIANTX tech demonstrator's latest flight tests are showing it's up for the task. The aircraft demonstrated its agility in low-level operations and went from 236 knots to a near-vertical drop into a confined landing zone, all while keeping the body of the aircraft level.
The Sikorsky-Boeing team is proving out game-changing capability for DEFIANT X using our technology demonstrator, #SB1DEFIANT. Learn more about our Future Long Range Assault Aircraft offer here: http://www.boeing.com/defiantx
