Any thoughts on the FVL (Future Vertical Lift) program that is going on as we speak?

Do you think the future replacement for the USMC & US Army's primary attack helicopter should be 2 separate designs or a Joint Attack Helicopter design?

Only thought: it's Army, so it's not going to happen.

Okay, maybe a cool prototype.

By that, I mean the prototype will only be able to lift off at sea level in cool weather.

:wink:

Seriously, isn't this the 3rd or 4th program that intended to replace the UH-60?
