The Scorpion Jet in Action

The realization that a significant gap existed between turboprop light attack and 4th and 5th Generation Multi-Role Strike Fighters was the impetus for the creation of both Textron AirLand and Scorpion. Textron AirLand assembled a team of engineering, prototype manufacturing and flight test experts in an advanced design and innovation facility to first bring Scorpion to flight. Textron AirLand maximized the use of non-developmental proven components and subassemblies, which reduced program cost and risk, and accelerated speed to market.
