That was a really neat read, I've always been curious why Bell changed the horizontal stabilizer position on the 222. Now I know. :)

 Sure puts a timeframe on those gunship concepts... look closely. ;)

Not surprising  these were not further studiedd since the S-76 from Sikorsky was almost a competitor that boasted favorable performance to the military, hence its use in SHADOW and LHX studies. No real life Airwolf :'(

(Kicks, screams, and whines like my 8 year old daughter) BUT THAT'S NOT FAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIR!!!!! We NEED a real life Airwolf, if for nothing else but to bring Stingy back from Soviet aviation!!! LMAO

Stingy will realize that resistance is futile. Once we have a real life Airwolf he will be assimilated into the fandom. x3

Except that my Hind is, in fact, a SuperHind armed with the latest MLP-85 "Banhammer" missile, which can be quite devastating.

*crowd gasp*
