Digital avionics suite. Embedded GPS and INS technology. Threat invisibility system. Onboard Integrated Vehicle Health Management System. Anhedral blades which generate more lift and hover capability and a rotor system with a wide-cored composite blade, which can stand up better to enemy gunfire. AN extra 100 shaft horsepower. New seats for the crew and pilots who sometime suffer from back injuries as a result of hard landings and seats contain variable-load energy attenuators, basically customized shock absorbers which allow the pilots to digitally dial in their weight. The pilot and crew seats will then "stroke" on seat support poles.
