Has a Replacement For the Black Hawk Finaly Come?


The Black Hawk has been the military’s weapon of choice when it comes to helicopter combat. But has a replacement finaly come? The Defiant helicopter is a colaberation between Sikorsky and Boeing. The revolutinary design has many benefits although some experts are still not convinced. The design includes many parts. The helicopter has a “coaxial rotor design for vertical flight” says  Swami Karunamoorthy a profesor of engineering at Washington University. It also has a pusher propeller system to maximie forward speed.

The two companies had to go through the engineering process in order to come up with the new design. They had to learn from their previous mistakes as well. A video of the advantages and parts of the new Defiant.
