Boeing revealed its prototype design for the US Army’s Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) which will gradually replace the retired Bell OH-58D Kiowa Warrior.

The Boeing FARA has a six-bladed rotor system, a single engine and tandem seats located in a modular cockpit containing large area display and autonomous capability.

Mark Cherry, VP and general manager of Boeing’s Phantom Works said: ‘We’re offering more than a helicopter – we’re offering an affordable and fully integrated system for the Army, the mission and the future.’

The platform will be capable of performing Long-Range Precision Fires and air-launched effects.
