Northrop Grumman Corp. wants the U.S. Army to unleash its Hellhound on the battlefield.
The Fall Church, Virginia-based contractor introduced a prototype of its new light reconnaissance vehicle, called the Hellhound, this week at the Association of the United States Army annual conference in Washington, D.C.
The sleek, black vehicle can hold a squad of six soldiers and their gear, export 100 kilowatts of power and travel in the back of a CH-47 Chinook cargo helicopter. It features a 30mm cannon that can fold from the roof into the vehicle, a height-reduction system and flat-screen display.
The company, which partnered with Pratt & Miller Defense and Jenoptik to develop the technology, has released a promotional video of the Hellhound (see below):
