AVX features sleek, low-drag profile, with a proposed coaxial-rotor compound machine, like the Sikorsky/Boeing design.
The company says:
“The AVX proposal offers the capabilities the Army wants for the future fleet of utility and attack aircraft at a very attractive price.
A number of experienced aerospace companies for development of the AVX JMR design.”
By the program’s end, the U.S. Army will have a new attack chopper, most probably a replacement for both the Sikorsky UH-60 Blackhawk and the Boeing AH-64 Apache.
