Boeing-Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche Helicopter Display Model.

The Boeing-Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche was an advanced five blade armed reconnaissance and attack helicopter designed for the United States Army. During the early 1980s, the U.S. Army began formulating a requirement for the replacement of its helicopters then in service, resulting in the Light Helicopter Experimental program.

n 1991, the Boeing-Sikorsky team was chosen to produce prototypes. The Comanche would incorporate stealth technologies, featuring a number of designs previously untried. It was to employ advanced sensors in its reconnaissance role, and was intended to designate targets for the AH-64 Apache.

The aircraft was also armed with missiles and rockets to destroy armored vehicles. Two RAH-66 prototypes were built and conducted flight testing from 1996 to 2004. Unfortunately, the RAH-66 program was canceled in 2004, before mass production began, after nearly $7 billion was spent on the program. The two prototypes developed are currently on display.

This handcrafted model is painstakingly molded from pressure cast composite resin by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
