SB1 Defiant Helicopter

Sikorsky-Boeing’s SB1 Defiant aims to replace the AH-64 Apache and the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters, as part of the Army’s future Vertical Lift program. Thanks to its two coaxial rotors and a pusher propeller, the aircraft can speed through the skies at 300 mph at altitudes of 6,000-feet, and hover like a bird. Inside, there’s enough room for 12 people, or up to 8 medivac pallets, while the Blackhawk only has an 11 soldier capacity. “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 Major Frank P. Conway, who is also Boeing’s experimental test pilot for the SB1. Click here to view the first image in today’s viral picture gallery.
