The Comanche was 20 years in the making and the mission went away. It was way over budget, overweight from the beginning, and a decade late. It didn't help that a mid program assessment changed the whole aircraft layout.

The S-97 is a great Sikorsky pitch for X-2 technology, but that aircraft in the video was a mockup.

By the way, the S-92 is a large conventional helicopter.
