WASHINGTON: The Army has now narrowed its future aircraft choices to Sikorsky vs. Bell.This afternoon, the service announced that it had picked Sikorsky and Bell to build competing prototypes for Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA), a high-speed optionally manned scout to replace the retired Bell OH-58 Kiowa. Just eight days ago, it picked the same two firms – plus aerospace giant Boeing, acting as Sikorsky’s de facto junior partner – to compete for the Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA), which will replace the Sikorsky’s UH-60 Black Hawk as the military’s aerial workhorse for everything from Ranger raids to medevac.
