Northrop Grumman Hellhound Draws Crowd at AUSA

The Hellhounds of folklore were supernatural dogs that wielded fire and served as harbingers of the afterlife.
Today it’s an apropos name for a light recon vehicle with a 30mm cannon up top and six troopers inside.
Northrop Grumman’s Hellhound, on display here at the AUSA Global Force Symposium and Exhibition, continues to raise eyebrows on the trade show floor.
The jet black vehicle was unveiled last fall at the AUSA show in Washington, D.C. Northrop has designed the Hellhound for the US Army’s light reconnaissance vehicle acquisition program. more
