The Bell Invictus competing for the Kiowa's replacement project is pretty much Comanche 2.0
Thus far it looks to have relatively large wings, and more aggressive ''attack helicopter'' vibes, as opposed to the lighter more scouty Comanche, but they clearly are drawing heavily from that experience. I'm not a fan of the pusher configuration the other design is presenting. There's inherent limitations to what a helicopter with rotors can do, and the pushers don't really circumvent them, so imo it's wasted money/weight and adds complexity. You either go conventional, or build a tiltrotor, and that's pretty much it.
