MILITARY AIRCRAFT
H1 " BADGER"

The H1 "Badger", by Hamilton Aerospace, is an all-composite, twin-engine, cranked arrow wing - canard, tactical aircraft. The primary mission is close air-to-ground troop support, forward air control, and tactical scout - reconnaissance, and long range, over water patrol.

One of the major design goals of the H1 "Badger" is a high trust-to-weight ratio. This all-composite airframe will be mated with twin Williams WJ33, or P&W615 engines. A high acceleration rate and high rate of climb will result. This will result in a higher survivability against small arms and short-range shoulder-launched weapons.

The H1 "Badger" is an offensive weapon designed for attack. The "Badger" is a heavily armed, light machine gun platform. Additional weapon systems can be provided. Multi-hard points are provided on the airframe capable of carrying a various array of weapons, as well as E.C.M. pods.
