Technically picture 3 shows proposed aircraft for the program, not actually modified aircraft, though a bit hard to tell because of the quality.

I was just checking the thread to see if anything new had come up, so sorry for the late reply. The "QS-55" Hind aggressors were just one of the Hind surrogates built or proposed in the late '80s. I had wondered if they had gone into service if they'd been redesignated to a QH-19 military designation. I think they were certainly worthy of being a Hind. :)

They definitely fit the shape close enough, especially when modified. This meant an easier target for Stingers, which apparently used shapes to ID their targets.

Also, still no joy on the Havoc-X, sorry. The search continues...

Yep. That was the Teledyne Ryan Model 326:

Just found on my PC! Sorry for the poor quality, but it is a scan of a photocopy of a photocopy, resized. Sikorsky S-76 Hind surrogate proposal, front with stock with no vismods but Soviet camo and markings. Note the rear S-76 has Hind vismods. From the Magazine Defence Helicopter World, Oct/Nov 1988.

Another one. Just found on my PC! Sorry for the poor quality, but it is a scan of a photocopy of a photocopy, resized. Aerospatiale Super Puma Hind surrogate with Hind vismods. As convincing as the "Red Dawn" Hinds if not more. From the Magazine Defence Helicopter World, Oct/Nov 1988.
