The Bell V-280 Valor offers:
State-of-the-art 3rd Generation Tiltrotor technology, specifically tailored to the unique demands of the United States Army.
Twice the speed and twice the range more than doubles operational reach
Significantly higher fuel efficiency reduces logistical and security footprint
The Bell V-280’s clean sheet design reduces complexity compared to previous generation tiltrotors, with fewer parts, as well as non-rotating, fixed engines. The Valor delivers the best value in procurement, operations and support, and force structure, providing increased maintainability, component reliability and systems designed to reduce operational and support costs.
