Could this be the next Armed Aerial Scout? That's not what Northrop Grumman and Bell Helicopter are necessarily pitching, but it seems to make sense. The two companies are partnering on a project called Fire X - a bigger, better, faster, Fire Scout built on a Bell 407 aircraft platform. It's unmanned, has lots of room for cargo internally and will fly within the next eight months, according to Bell. They're looking to fly it for the Navy, who's expressed interest in having a medium-endurance VTUAV.Credit: Northrop Grumman
