Meet the Phantom Badger

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.
