The American Aircraft International Penetrator was a military helicopter prototype conceived in 1990 as a gunship conversion of the Bell UH-1 Iroquois, aimed at ground insertion, close support and counter-insurgency roles.
Only 1 single Bell UH-1 was used to convert to the 3 models making this the most rebuilt Bell air frame to date.
Named The Aggressor, The Penetrator, The Stealth Star.
A single prototype was built in 1991 but the manufacturer never won any contracts for production.
It was first designed by the American Aircraft Corporation (AAC) and was marketed by a separate company, American Aircraft International (AAI).
The prototype aircraft was overhauled by Lt. Col Robert Laura’s ‘Aerocraft R&D & Kulair’ in 2004 and is now known as the Stealth Star.
