Bell Helicopter says their new V-280 Valor Tilt Rotor will travel at the twice the speed and have twice the range of current helicopters. The aircraft will be able to carry four crew members and 14 troops.

With more than twice the speed and range of current helicopter platforms, the Bell V-280 Valor provides access to get to the objective while providing superior agility at the objective.

Team Valor’s mission equipment package enables enroute situational understanding through digitally fused reconnaissance, surveillance, intelligence and friendly force information. Airborne battle boards bring fused data and mission updates to the cabin for real-time tracking. – Bell Helicopters
