Description: The US Navy's Phantom Badger is a small, versatile and compact tactical vehicle developed by Boeing Phantom Works to serve as combat support vehicle transported inside a V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft. Besides, then Phantom Badgers can be carried inside a C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft and two fit into a C-130 aircraft or CH-47 Chinook helicopter. Its rear section is modular and can be quickly changed for missions including reconnaissance, combat search and rescue, casualty transport, direct action with weapons mounts or explosive ordnance disposal. This combination of modularity, transportability and proven all-terrain performance provides increased mission flexibility and enhanced survivability. The vehicle was certified for transport inside the V-22 tiltrotor aircraft in March 2014. So far, the Phantom Badger has completed more than 5,000 miles of rugged terrain durability testing and successful airdrop tests from a C-17 airlifter.
