четвертый раз - не LHX?

The Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft (FARA) program was initiated by the United States Army in 2018 to develop a successor to the Bell OH-58 Kiowa scout helicopter as part of the Future Vertical Lift program. The OH-58 was retired in 2014; three prior programs for a successor were cancelled prior to reaching production: Light Helicopter Experimental (1982–2004, resulting in the Boeing–Sikorsky RAH-66 Comanche), Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (2004–06, resulting in the Bell ARH-70 Arapaho), and Armed Aerial Scout (2012–13, evaluating commercial off-the-shelf designs).

как говорится, я не тормоз. Но только сейчас упоминание FARA на глаза попалось, в контексте новой 20мм пушки на платформе Chain Gun (которую рассматривают как более легкую альтернативу 3-ствольному Гатлингу в том же калибре :)
