    TE, I used your post to create this thread to have a place to talk about the upcoming V-280, and any other current in-production or planned, non V-22 Tilt Rotor aircraft.

    SO Bell is aiming to appeal more to the budget with this move. in essence it's a one platform to be tailored concept.

    Ánd, in the Bell concept, the AH version would feature internal weapons carriage, if I interpret the picture correctly. I don't know how much that woud help LO with those big tilt-rotors, but it certainly should do something for speed / range.
    Then again, the AH might be more heavily protected.
