The Bell 360 Invictus is part of the US Army Aviation's Future Vertical Lift program. They've been trying to replace the OH-58 Kiowa helicopter for years. The Commanche RAH-66 failed to deliver in 2004 due to its 20mm autocannon being inaccurate and its engine not having enough power. But the lessons learned there are being applied to the 360 Invictus. Will its new fly by wire low maintenance be enough to make it the infantry's go to "over the shoulder" close air support system? Or will it go by the wayside as another failed 7 billion dollar defense program?
