Default Bell Unveils V-280 Valor Tiltrotor



Bell Helicopter has unveiled what may become what everyone hoped the V-22 Osprey would be, a tiltrotor able to operate at high altitudes for long ranges and with easily managed downwash.

The new aircraft, to be known as the V-280 Valor, is the company's offering for the Army's Future Vertical Lift technology demonstration program. FVL is a science and technology program to develop four classes of advanced aircraft light, medium, heavy and ultra -- that can take off and land vertically. The first of the four to be built would be a medium-lift aircraft known as the Joint Multirole, a vehicle that could be adapted for various missions. The Valor is aimed at the Joint Multirole offering.

Yea they came out with it a few weeks ago. It is a interesting concept but I think it is going to be hard to pull off having a pressurized cabin in a battlefield chopper. I think it might be doable for a special mission platform but not for a regular every day battle chopper.
