The Boeing Phantom Badger, or simply the Badger, is a combat support vehicle built by Boeing, in collaboration with MSI Defense Solutions.[2] Designed in response to transport issues with the V-22 Osprey, the Badger is notable for its size and versatility.[3] Unlike previous vehicles and competing offers, the Badger's design is such that it avoids non-standard equipment, instead using already available hardware for construction.[4] Although officially certified for use with United States Navy aircraft, the Badger is also used by the Air Force as well as United States Marine Corps special operations.
