The future of war: Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky reveal radical SB1 Defiant 'supercopter' that will be the fastest helicopter in the world (and replace the Blackhawk AND Apache)

The radical craft is being built by Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky - and has been revealed for the first time.

Craft could replace the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter and the UH-60 Blackhawk

Craft tops out at 300 mph and is able to hover 6,000 feet in the air


It could be the future of military helicopters.

Called SB1 Defiant, the radical craft is being built by Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky and has been revealed for the first time.

'The SB1 DEFIANT is designed to fly at twice the speed and range of today's conventional helicopters and offers advanced agility and maneuverability,' Sikorsky said.


The primary advantage that Defiant's going to offer over a traditional helicopter is, it's got twice the speed, two to three times the range, and is just an extremely maneuverable and agile platform,' said retired Marine Maj. Frank P. Conway, Sikorsky's experimental test pilot for both the SB1 and the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor, when the concept was first unveiled.

He called the Defiant 'a very hot, sexy aircraft.'

When it enters service, the Defiant will carry a crew of four and a cabin equipped for up to 12 combat-ready troops or eight medevac litters.

There will also be an attack variant that shares a common fly-by-wire drivetrain and many other systems, but has a different composite fuselage and is much more heavily armed.

'Designed for the Army’s attack and assault missions as well as the Marine Corps long-range transportation, infiltration and resupply missions, the SB1 DEFIANT is uniquely suited to provide the warfighter with unmatched capabilities for the U.S. Military’s various missions,' the firms said.



The 'warcopter' would be equipped with foldable, ridged composite rotor blades that create less downwash when it lowers to the ground to drop off or pick off soldiers and supplies.

And the pusher propeller and active rudders will provider pilots with more stability when hovering, as a well a helping them quickly accelerate and decelerate while in flight.

The Defiant would cruise at 250 knots and hover at altitudes of 6,000 feet.

This is more than a hundred miles an hour faster than the UH-60M Blackhawk transport, as it maxes out at 183 miles an hour.

It will also have the strength and power to carry more cargo than the average helicopters, but Lockheed is not giving all of its secrets away it has yet to release the range and payload capacity.

All these investment into the tools of war can only create an enabling environment that'll nurtrue the thirst for violence, terrorism and ultimately WAR.

We would be better off if these billions were invested in eradicating: hunger, poverty, unemployment which are the real and unsung roots of evil.

Hmmm,They are finally bringing it out to the mainstream world after a better one has been built for dark projects. This type of model has been sighted for yrs in conjunction with......abductions.

As for the poster above. War is money. Don't hold your breath

You right bro, but people have been fighting war since thousands of ago with stick/arrows/stones trying to dominate and claim territories.

With military strength, no one can oppress or threaten anyone.

Investment in war tools doesn’t nurture thirst for violence bt rather reduce d quest of waging war n create balance of power among state. The arrival of Nuclear weapon as bn one of d major reason dt stops state from going to war, when US president Abraham L. was told to wage war, he said to think of going to war (With D arrival of Nuclear Weapons)is to think of the unthinkable, that by miraculous configuration anyone survive, d living will envy d death. The display of such weapons will keep state away from thinking of going to war... North Korea was able to gain global attention due to the possession of Nuclear weapon.

Hunger is no cause of evil. If only you know how much those behind terrorism spend for a single mission, you will see that some people are just naturally evil.


And some people are still purchasing a tocumbo kite in the name of helicopter
