AXIX GP to showcase hybrid close-air support vehicle at AUSA 2018

The AXIX GP company will demonstrate, at at the upcoming Association of the United States Army (AUSA) conference in Washington DC, the concept of hybrid quad-rotor close-air support vehicle.

The military and weaponized version of the drone quad-rotor vehicle has vertical takeoff and landing capabilities, hovers, and flies at a top speed of 350mph.

According to the company, the hybrid close-air support vehicle will have a general hybrid power plant based on new and existing combustible engines and Tesla Inc electric induction motor technology giving it the performance reliability of a combustible engine; but maintaining electric power under load.


Flight operation and navigation will be achieved by Visual Flight Rules and a real-time GPS navigation satellite system, in a heads-up display. The AXIX’s hybrid close-air support vehicle will be powered by a Kawasaki Mule engine/CVT, with a Quick-Charge hybrid link to (4)Tesla Model S induction motors; Dual axial rotors for 5- axis flight; carbon fiber/aluminum fused construction; a phenomenal power to weight ratio for flight.

Also noted that the construction of hybrid quad-rotor close-air support vehicle will be 3D printing.

The militarized version will have cannon and rocket weapons.

The AXIX GP also noted that Manufacturing, Testing, and R&D of the first generation of aircraft will be conducted on foreign soil to ensure no USA bureaucratic/domestic business interference from third parties or worse.

It is worth noting that the military experts have expressed their concern about reality capabilities of this hybrid quad-rotor close-air support vehicle.

The AXIX GP will unveil details of its newest hybrid quad-rotor close-air support vehicle during AUSA 2018 at Booth 8823.
