The Phantom Badger can be transported inside a V-22 Osprey.

Boeing’s latest technology is robust yet sleek, versatile and speedy, and it doesn’t even leave the ground. Meet the Phantom Badger.

To increase its capabilities Boeing turned to a team of NASCAR-experienced engineers. To test the Phantom Badger engineers took it four-wheeling in North Carolina, and off-roading in the Nevada desert.

A small company in North Carolina, MSI, developed the Phantom Badger’s shocks and suspension to tackle the challenging terrain and obstacles military customers would encounter.

“This is a vehicle that will last the customer a long time, and we truly think this weight class of vehicle closes a big capability gap,” said John Chicoli, Boeing’s Phantom Badger program manager.
