Why is it taking so long to become a reality?! It is a beauty and undoubtedly good.

Its really quite in stealth mode but when they push it sounds like a swarm of ANGRY BEES!

the funny thing, the design from this nice machine remind me the 1951 Breguet G111 helicopter prototype ( without the pusher propeller)...after this prototype did Breguet stops the helicopter development because financial problems...was later buy from Dassault...

Nice seems like the kinks are nearly sorted.

Thing looks like it can move pretty well when it needs to

Ever since the Cheyenne Lockheed has recognized the brilliance of putting a pusher propeller system on a helicopter. It has taken 40 years for technology and computing power to make it combat ready, but I hope the military sees the game changing nature of this bird.

Nice. The Lockheed / Sikorsky team have a winner. This aircraft will revolutionize rotary flight. Love to see what it will do when cleared for 100%. “MERICA”.

This thing has been decades in the making. The coaxial rotor should help in high altitude and high heat environments like Afghanistan.

Kolejna zabawka do zabijania ludzi....nice

A far far better option over tilt rotor.

Great looking machine, and without the weird pusher prop it's pretty quiet. The coaxial main rotor design will really pay off, as it has with Kamov helicopters and others over time. Would love to hear the reasoning behind that pusher prop, though. I'm guessing it's for a bit of extra top-end speed, but how much does it really give them? Also, it looks like they reversed it in the 2nd half of the video and were able to maintain a nose-down angle of attack while circling the runway, which is interesting, but what's the practicality behind it? Would love a look inside at some point, too.

А что он не ёбнулся? У него же выявили промблемы с силовой установкой)))

Originally designed in the 60’s. And now they want to resurrect it and try to sell it today. Ain’t gonna sell idiots. Stop wasting your r&d money.
