This is a study for an attack helicopter made during my studies at the University, aimed to be my master thesis. It's a prototype of a twin engined helicopter uniaxial rotor, with 2 pilots in tandem, equipped with advanced electronics and the ability to carry a wide variety of weaponry. It carries a six-barrel cannon of 23-30 mm. The weapons are carried on special hangers under a small wing on both sides of the fuselage, which also provides a small amount of lift. The main rotor has 5 blades made of composite materials which keeps the overall weight, low. The sensitive places are armoured against light weapon cartridges.
