Four years ago Calidus surprised showgoers with the B-250, but now the company has unveiled a much larger attack aircraft.
Calidus is yet to reveal any details about its proposed B-350 platform, which appears in mock-up form at the Dubai Airshow static.
Only a mockup for now to attract orders. This is one massive beast with a whopping 12 underwing hardpoints. It's about the closest we are going to get to a modern version of the legendary Douglas Skyraider. I wonder how much of a market this aircraft has ? Perhaps an Asian or African nation fighting an insurgency that cannot afford jets but needs something more capable than a Tucano or a small UAV ? I wonder if the Philippines might be tempted to order this if the price is right.
