Bell V-280 Valor Tiltrotor [Video]

Say hello to the Bell V-280 Valor Tiltrotor, the airframe manufacturer's pitch for the Joint Multi Role (JMR)/Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program.

The video takes the idea of the corporate promotional film to an entirely new level of fictional drama and scenarios, including a pair of young kids playing a combat video game at the beginning.

Still a paper airplane, the specs of the proposed Bell V-280 Valor Tiltrotor are impressive if it is built and if Bell delivers.

According to Bell, the V-280 specs will be:
Speed: 280 KTAS cruise speed
Combat range: 500-800nm
Strategically Self-Deployable - 2100nm Range
Achieves 6k/95
Non-rotating, fixed engines
Triple redundant fly-by-wire flight control system
Conventional, retractable landing gear
Two 6' wide large side doors for ease of ingress/egress
Suitable down wash
Significantly smaller logistical footprint compared to other aircraft

The video also clearly shows a gunship variant with canon or machine guns as well as internally carried air to ground missiles.
