Rotorcraft Recognition Challenge: Name that variant!

OK then.  This one may be too easy, but I'm looking for the US Army designation for this aircraft:

A little hard to tell for me, but it shares some similarity with the Bell Model 47H (Army designation H-13).

Good guess, but it's not a Bell aircraft.

Fairchild-Hiller FH-1100, Army prototypes originally designated HO-5, then later redesignated OH-5A. It was one of three designs selected by the U.S. Army for prototype evaluation in response to the LOH (Light Observation Helicopter) competition.

Travis,

   I knew that was too easy.  If we're getting technical the photo is the YOH-5A as the "Y" denoted a prepoduction prototype and the pic is from the LOH competition flyoff.  You also might be interested in the weapon system mounted to the side.  It is the XM-7 twin M60C system.  Each of the three LOH competitors mounted the system differently.  Looks like you're up.

Well, you're right about it being a Ka-25, that's obvious enough. Just a brief hint: It was an attept at a civilian passenger / cargo version, with a certain *external* lifting capability.

A flying crane. Okay, so that must be the operator's gondola under the nose. Don't know the designation though, sorry.

Here is my next challenge. It should be more difficult. I would have posted a Convair proposal as an upgrade to the Model 49 but my files are missing.


 The photo attached to the above post is actually the YEH-60B SOTAS (Stand Off Target Aquisition System) bird.   Here's the real deal before she got the SLAR boom.  Notice the long legs on the landing gear.

Aww monkey-trumpets! Well the ECM jammer version uses a revolving radar(?) just like it. Sowy. :(

To the current challenge, that's the Ka-25K.

Sort of looks like a cross between the AS.332 and NH-90.

Not sure if there is some specific designation you are looking for but that is the Sea Apache proposal as fara s I know.   I believe that is conceptual artwork done by Hughes.

Ray, you got it.

Honestly, I'm not sure if it has a specific designation either.

"Sea Apache" remained a concept and was never given one. However, it did bear an alternate name: "Gray Thunder" (Ha!)

The design was refined about three times (current challenge shows the third proposal) but the project was not funded, and so the Marines continued using Sea Cobras instead.

 Aw crud, now I have to pick one.  OK, this will probably be an easy one, but here goes. I think we all know it's a cobra, but which variant.

I believe the tentative designation of the Sea Apache was AH-64B.

 Bingo!  in fact it is the first AH-1Q so technically YAH-1Q.  The black nose is the giveaway.  On to you, sir.
