Team Zulu Viper

Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter
Proven in Australia and ready for the region, the Bell Viper delivers the broadest mission sets across the harshest environments.
Bell is offering the AH-1Z Viper under a foreign military sales framework, while BAE Systems would draw on 65 years’ experience and leverage suppliers both new and existing to bring the aircraft into service. Together we form ‘Team Zulu Viper.’
 
Optimising Australian Industry Capability (AIC) is at the core of what we do and is the foundation of the Team Zulu Viper solution. More than 400 Australian businesses attended AIC roadshows to express their interest in joining BAE Systems’ 1600-strong supply chain to provide specialised equipment and services for Team Zulu Viper.
 

Supported by a significant local supply chain, training and sustainment capability across the land and sea battlespace, Team Zulu Viper will deliver a superior and more reliable ARH for the Australian Army.

 
The Viper has a proven 94% availability along with the lowest maintenance man-hour to flying hour of any helicopter of its type. BAE Systems, with 375,000 incident free flying hours under our Initial Basic Flight Training contract bolstered by more than 25 years of proven reliability in sustaining the Black Hawk, Seahawk and Chinook helicopters, is ideally positioned to deliver through life, in-service and training support services.
 

Certified for all aero modifications, the Team Zulu Viper solution will keep capability upgrades in-country and Australians in highly skilled work.

 
From design to delivery, the Viper is environmentally hardened to prioritise safety over land and water. The Viper’s design provides a compact and capable deployment with a small support equipment footprint. A single person can deliver a semi-autonomous blade fold in four minutes.
 
The Team Zulu Viper philosophy focuses on maximising capability, providing high availability, consolidating support requirements and lowering the total cost of ownership. The Viper is the only attack helicopter built to simplify maintenance, training, and supply efforts.
 
Already deployed in Australia and the Indo Pacific region, the Viper is a proven solution bringing together unrivalled speed, range, capacity and interoperability to deliver combat helicopter reconnaissance, security and attack effects in any environment.
