Sikorsky today has unveiled this mock-up for a light tactical helicopter (LTH) based on the X2, a developmental coaxial rotor aircraft capable of 250kts.
The unveiling comes at the Army Aviation Association of America convention in Nashville.
The X2 LTH is likely Sikorsky’s prime candidate for the Army’s armed scout helicopter contract. The at least 18-month delay for the ASH program announced last week should help Sikorsky’s chances. The company needs the time to continue testing the X2 prototype, which first flew late last year.
