On Dec. 12, Cessna’s Scorpion Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR)/Strike aircraft made its first flight from McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kansas.

A new video, released by Textron, shows the Scorpion taxiing, taking off, maneuvering and landing after a 1.4-hour test flight.

The aircraft is a two-seater with twin canted tails, two 8,000-lb turbofan engines, straight wings with internal weapons bay and  external hardpoints to accomodate precision guided munitions.
