Transport Helo Concepts

There we go again - an entire month almost gone. All thanks to the good folks at Obsidian and Bethesda Soft for bringing us Fallout New entire month of November almost got frakked.

There were however some work done and these here are some of the more interesting things from the month of November.

Transport helo concept based around co-axial contra-rotating rotors. Pretty much what the Russian helicopter manufacturer Kamov does. Started out trying it in a Gyrodyne configuration - which was curiously not popular in real life despite its speed and agility. Though its brought back into the spotlight recently with the X-49 Speedhawk Compound Helo testbed.

Subsequent tries were a bit more conventional.

Here's a light 2-3 man utility helicopter. Was kinda interested to see how I can cross the Bell-47 with a Kamov.

Also, a couple of portable UAV concepts.

This one's based on the MQ-8B Firescout. Instead of specialized outboard weapons, what if the UAV could be reloaded by simply mounting infantry carried AT rockets? That would probably greatly reduce the time needed to return for rearming.

That's all for this post folks. I'll be putting up another one before November ends - hopefully.
