    And from here: http://www.aerospacemanufacturingand...-valor-012516/
    "The V-280 Valor is competing in the Department of Defenseís Joint Multi-Role Technology Demonstrator (JMR TD) program. This is a science and technology precursor to the Department of Defenseís Future Vertical Lift program, with the goal to replace 2,000 to 4,000 medium-class utility and attack helicopters.

    The V-280 Valor is Bell Helicopterís offering for the JMR-TD program. A next generation tiltrotor, the Bell V-280 Valor advanced technology tiltrotor is designed to offer speed, range, and payload for expeditionary maneuvers".

    The Bell V-280 Valor is a tiltrotor aircraft being developed by Bell Helicopter and Lockheed Martin for the United States Army's Future Vertical Lift (FVL) program.

    Although I like the increased performance I think the look of tilt-rotors are like looking at a football bat.
