After a series of successful tests, the U.S. Navy last month certified that the Boeing [NYSE: BA] Phantom Badger combat support vehicle can be transported inside a V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft. That is another step toward providing warfighters with more options to deploy the versatile vehicle.
Phantom Badger has completed more than 5,000 miles of rugged terrain durability testing and successful airdrop tests from a C-17. Developed by Boeing Phantom Works, Phantom Badger supports a wide range of missions not possible with existing combat support vehicles.
