= Best-in-Class Field of View
Unique to Bronco II is a reconfigurable conformal mission bay in the belly of the aircraft with near limitless options of interchangeable modules.
Superior Field of View
Reconfigure the mission while remotely deployed, in less than 2 hours.
The aircraft has superior rough field characteristics, being able to operate from austere un-paved landing zones - a result of its propriety retractable trailing link landing gear, high wing and pusher-prop configuration. Cockpit visibility enables complex ground manoeuvres in constrained environments.

Mission flexibility is a Bronco II hallmark. The clean-sheet design uses an open system architecture that separates mission systems from the flight control and management system, enabling rapid system changes, updates, additions, integration or removal.
+ simultaneous dual carriage of gimbaled sensors
Designed with roll-on, roll-off standards in mind, six personnel can disassemble the Bronco II into its shipping components and can rapidly reassemble the aircraft in the field in less than 12 hours.
A multitude of sensor mounting points available all around the aircraft to ensure 360˚ coverage.
