Description: The MD-540F is an upgraded version of the MD-530F single-engine, armed scout helicopter optimized for hot and high altitude environments. The upgraded rotary-wing aircraft features a six-bladed, fully articulated rotor blade system made up entirely of composite material, and a more rugged landing skid built for heavier take-off and landing weights. Besides, the aircraft is fitted with new avionics, a fully integrated digital glass cockpit, a FLIR and a new weapons package. Information will be displayed to the pilots on large, easy to read, multi-function color displays, and directly onto the pilot's eyes using a sophisticated Helmet Display and Tracking System (HDTS). The weapon options include: unguided rockets, guns, laser guided rockets and Hellfire missiles. MD Helicopters Inc was unveiled in early April 2012 with the aircraft to be certified in the first quarter of 2013.

The armament options of the MD-540F helicopter will allow the destruction of hostile armored vehicles and personnel from safe ranges with little collateral damage.
