It's from The Onion mang... satire. puuuuure unadulterated Satire.


www.theonion.com...
The Onion is a satirical newspaper published by Onion, Inc.

The Onion uses invented names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized. Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental.

The same deal occurred with the RAH-66, aka Comanche. Sad but true. A lot of times the cheaper alternative get chosen.



Wiki : RAH-66 Comanche



Cancellation

On 23 February 2004, the U.S. Army announced their decision to cancel the Comanche helicopter program in view of the need to provide funds to renovate the existing helicopter fleet of aging attack, utility, and reconnaissance aircraft.[11] Also a factor was the growing popularity in the military of using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for reconnaissance purposes – in addition to tests, UAVs had proven their worth in Afghanistan and Iraq. About US$6.9 billion had already been invested in the Comanche program at the time of its termination.[12] An additional US$450–680 million was required in contract termination fees to main program partners Sikorsky and Boeing Integrated Defense Systems.[13][14]

Technology developed for the Comanche will be integrated into the Apache and other U.S. military helicopter developments. The Army was developing the Bell ARH-70 to replace the OH-58D in place of the RAH-66, but after cost overuns, the ARH-70 was canceled in October 2008.

Currently the prototype airframe 95-0001 "The DUKE" is located at the US Army Aviation Museum in Fort Rucker, Alabama and 94-0327 was to arrive at the museum in 2008.


Damn, I didn't realize the video was from Onion. Very funny.
