Raider X...rapid acceleration without nose dip

I've been a little miffed at Sikorsky lately.  The CH-53K is eye wateringly expensive, and the Raider X is slow off the mark.

Having said that I hope they deliver.  The US Army and Marine Corps need both programs to work.  The CH-53K for obvious reasons for the Marines.  The Raider X as an alternative platform for those missions where the V-280 is unsuitable (thinking more of a Little Bird replacement for the Raider X with the V-280 replacing BlackHawks).
