The Transformer TX – Overcoming Difficult Terrain and Threats

Posted on July 29, 2014 at 8:17 pm

The Transformer (TX) programme was created in 2009 and since then it’s gained quite a bit of media attention. It’s essentially a car that can transform into a helicopter, making it easy for the US military to overcome tough terrain and threats.

One minute you could be travelling along the service, the next you could be making your way a mile above the surface, and it’s a machine that’s ideal for tactical support mission and small units. It’s clear that helicopters often find it difficult to land in certain areas, but you essentially get plain and car with this security vehicle.

Injured soldiers can quickly be picked up and taken away in this device, but the fact is there is still a long way to go and it is just a prototype. The name Transformer TX has certainly demanded attention but it could be years until we see it in action, even though the project began over 5 years ago.
