Cykowski and Boeing are bidding for the case and jointly develop the latest assault helicopter “Dreadnought X”.

“Fearless X” is claimed to be 185 kilometers per hour faster than traditional helicopters, with a 60% increase in range, and 50% increase in hover-stop dynamics. It has the same floor space as the “Black Hawk”, the same short-range formation flying, and Minimal changes in current tactics, technology, training or infrastructure to provide new assault aircraft.
