Raider Concept in flight.It is Sikorsky's proposed high-speed scout and attack compound helicopter which can carry 2&6 men as crew plus armed soldiers. Cruising speed is 253 mph/407 km/h. It is Sikorsky's earliest attempt for a fast helicopter with stiff coaxial rotors and is built in 2 different styles of the prototype. The first flight was in May 2015.

The FS-model has a VC with animated sticks and HUD. The exterior provides animated multiple rockets and a fast rotating Gatling gun (I preferred that animated gun instead of the proposal of a 0.5-inch gun for the real helicopter).

Twelve cameras show all the features. FSDS 3.5 model and panel and all configurations by Erwin Welker

Sorry, I haven't built that helicopter for FS2004. But it should work. But you have to to put the textures from the common texture into all of the 3 existing texture folders (the texture.cfg inside of the texture folders will not work in FS9) and probably you have to replace the air files with FS9-compatible ones.


  • Copy and paste the helicopter folder into the Rotorcraft folder in FSX.
  • Copy, paste and overwrite the Sound, Gauges, and Effects into the main directory of your FSX.


  • Please read the text of each camera view or enable the text by using the menu option views.
  • Here you get all description for the key commands for each camera view.

FSX Views

  • AIRCRAFT views: Toggle with the S-key to the aircraft views. Then toggle with the A-key to get more views.
  • VC-VIEWS: Hit F9, then toggle with the A-key to get 2 more VC views.
  • 2D-View: Hit F10 for the 2D panel and zoom out to the minimum.

I've seen the rotorcraft being tested at a range in Nevada, This is as close as you'll get until the actual public unveil. There's another new stealth rotorcraft on its way and a far more advanced SR (RS) Highspeed on its way. The railgun testing is in its advanced testing with two mounted on stealth ships. The mounted have a range of about 80 miles with a speed well over 3x the speed of sound, the test model is more advanced with a range of 150 or more miles. The railgun uses electricity rather than powder. Thank you Fly Away for providing the flight simulation world with another dynamic freeware.
