Multi-Mission Tactical Transport
The objective of the Army aviation modernization strategy is to reduce the size of the rotary and fixed wing fleets to four aircraft types each via the Aviation Restructuring Initiative (ARI). ARI is the vehicle by which the Army intends to accomplish the reduction in fleet size and model types while maintaining the vital capabilities of the fleet. As a product of ARI, Army aviation's overall goal relative to the fixed wing fleet is to reduce the current number of models from 21 to 4.
