It should be mentioned that a XV-1 and XV-3 competitor was proposed, and I believe it was the S-57.

There was also a US Army-funded AARV as well, but I forgot the designation.

Also found these at the usual spot...

S-3 and S-4 were also helicopters based on the S-2
S-46: VS-300
S-47: VS-316
S-48: VS-327

S-74: original designation of the S-76.

I thought the S-3 was a training aircraft from like 1910?

Guys, if your gonna copy info from Secret Projects on to this forum, you might want to read a bit further to find out wheather the info is accurate or not, because I just found these posted by a member saying those other designations were not right:

S-46: VS-300
S-47: VS-300A
S-48: VS-316A = R-4
S-49: VS-316B = R-6
S-50: VS-327 = R-5 to R-5E and HO2S
S-51: H-5F to H-5H and HO3S
S-52: H-18 and HO5S
S-53: XHJS-1
S-54: R-4 modified in sesqui-tandem configuration

Another one mentioned was the S-72 (design No.233) possibly meaning DS-233.

"DS-" means "Design Study" and therefore given to helicopter designs in the early development stages.

A new designation to add!

S-97 "Raider" - Military light-tactical version of the X2 high-speed coaxial-rotor helicopter.

More pics of the X2.

I understand that coaxial system helps negate retreating blade stall during high speed translational flight, but I'm still stumped as to how the X2 over comes dissymetry of lift with a rigid rotor system....no blade flapping? Sarah..comments? Please?
