    Bell's prototype tiltrotor keeps pulling ahead of rivals -- but the race to replace the UH-60 Black Hawk is far from over.

    Kamov style rotors ducted fans wings and a nose turret. AVX did everything but bolt on rockets.

    "Newsflash!", every FBW system has had control anomalies in development, take a good look at the Osprey since we are dealing with rotorcraft, complex rotorcraft are a bag of cats, especially when you begin to work off the rough edges of the FCS, sadly the Raider encountered a catastrophic PIO...that PIO was directly caused by the Flight Control System programming anomaly.....

    I will guarantee that the tilt rotor is far more complex than in that regard than the raider, which is a fairly simple contra-rotating set of main rotors and a pusher prop, simple in comparison to the tilt-rotor.. and far more maneuverable in close confines....

    Boeing has admitted they had serious problems with the transmission on the Defiant. They still have not used the pusher prop, iirc, with the defiant.

    And a pusher prop and dual blades won't be as fast or have as long of legs as a tilt rotor.

    IFF Boeing and Sikorsky pitched a raider deriv for FARA, they'll probably win. I sincerely doubt the Defiant will win FLRAA though. The Defiant is DEFINITELY not winning the Marine segment of that purchase.
