Army Air Corps Defender 4000

The Britten Norman Defender 4000 is an enhanced version of the Defender aircraft, the British Army placing an order for three aircraft in 2003. The 4000 looks different, with an extended fuselage and longer wings. The aircraft can carry weapons and features an electro-optical turret under the nose and can patrol an area of 7,000km2 in one hour, with a maximum endurance of eight hours.
