The RAH-66 Comanche is an advanced U.S. Army military helicopter for reconnaissance, incorporating stealth techniques.

The U.S. Army planned to purchase almost 1,300 Comanche's for scout and light attack roles and in May 1995, the first of the prototypes rolled out of the Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation's helicopter production facility. The prototypes maiden flight was on January 4, 1996. The RAH-66's have a very sophisticated design and navigation systems, allowing it to operate at night and in bad weather. Its airframe was designed to fit more easily than the Apache into transport aircraft or into transport ships, enabling it to be deployed to hot spots quickly. The RAH-66A has a crew of 2. It has a maximum speed of 175 knots and a range of 262 nmi. The primary user of the RAH-66 Comanche was the United States Army.

On February 23, 2004, the U.S. Army cancelled the Comanche helicopter program to provide funds to renovate the existing helicopter fleet of aging attack, utility and reconnaissance aircraft. Another factor was the growing popularity of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for reconnaissance purposes and UAVs had proven their worth in Afghanistan and Iraq. Technology incorporated in the Comanche will be integrated into the Apache and other U.S. military helicopter developments, and some of its roles will be taken over by the Bell ARH-70.
