Description: The Textron AirLand Scorpion jet is an affordable, multi-mission tactical military jet platform using commercially available technologies and processes. This twin-seat, twin-engine aircraft has been designed to carry out border and maritime security missions, counter narcotics, provide irregular warfare support, aerospace control alert and humanitarian assistance/disaster response. The all-composite, subsonic Scorpion military aircraft is powered by two turbofan engines developing 8,000-lb of thrust and has a maximum range of 2,400 nautical miles (+4,000 km). The aircraft features six under wing external stores and inner payload bay with the ability to deliver guided and non-guide missiles and weapons. The payload bay is designed to accommodate additional avionics and sensors as well as extra fuel tanks. The program started in September 2013 following the United States Department of Defense (US DoD) budget cuts that make more necessary than ever a non-expensive military jet. The first flight was carried out on December 12, 2013. Textron AirLand, LLC, is a joint venture between Textron Inc and AirLand Enterprises, LLC.

The Scorpion's modular mission system is built on open standards to maximize operational flexibility. This layout allows for additional sensors and weapons with minimal integration costs, provides hardware flexibility and scalability, and is based on certified avionics components. The aircraft's cockpit is based on multi-function color displays. The Scorpion features: built-in flight management system; Class-B Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS); Engine Indicating/Crew Alerting System (CAS)/Master Caution; Dual Air Data Attitude Heading Reference Systems; Dual Global Positioning System/Satellite-Based Augmentation System (GPS/SBAS); Display of External Video (Mission Processor, EO/IR, etc.) - Sensor Agnostic; Integrated Moving Maps Including Highway in the Sky Functionality; Weather Radar Controls; Night Vision Compatible; and Low Power Consumption.
