The Israeli-invented X-Hawk VTOL (Vertical takeoff and landing) craft, now being jointly developed with Bell helicopter, will debut as a 12-man troop transporter that will reach 155 m.p.h. (250 km/h) and climb to 12,000 ft. (3,700 m).

Implications - The aviation craft takes the form of a aerial vehicle, so it has a futuristic look you'd see in movies. In size, it can be compared to a small van. The benefit of the X-Hawk is its ability to maneuver in different places, including street level and the tops of buildings. The design shows no exposed rotors, which means it's immune to electrical wires and obstacles when it's running. It can also fulfill a range of missions such as working with accidents and much more.
