The U.S. Army has decided: The field of five competing designs for its Future Attack and Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) has been culled to just two. 

The Bell 360 Invictus will face off against the Sikorsky Raider X in a ‘winner takes all’ fly-off in the fall of 2023. The winner from that fly-off can expect a lucrative contract to build hundreds of aircraft for the U.S. Army, and quickly.
