Tactical Helicopters are some of the most badass vehicles on the planet, boasting unique designs and mission-tailored hardware to complete some of the world’s toughest jobs. Aerial support systems are an important tool that countless individuals depend on in extremely harsh conditions — and Bell Flight’s latest offering, the V-280 Valor, has made the traditional helicopter even more capable.

The Valor is a multipurpose aircraft that utilizes a triple redundant fly-by-wire control system, a 12,000-plus-pound load capacity, and two gigantic tiltrotor propeller units similar to those on the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey. It’s outfitted with enhanced situational awareness technology that helps provide critical tactical countermeasures, a crew capacity of up to 14 individuals, and a 2,400-mile deployable range. With superior agility, extended travel, and a platform that operates at nearly twice the speed of a modern helicopter (at around 322 miles per hour), the V-280 is one of the most capable aerial systems to date.
