you know when the russians get there economy really going and can offord these sexy helicopters. they will become the real shit
I wonder. Why can't they replace the rotors with the jet engines?

Don't replace the missile with minigun, will be better if this aircraft use both missile and minigun.
But, what kind of missile below its body?

for Merco1959, the stability wouldn't actaually be a problem, it has to main rotors, so it doesn't need the tail one
It would need a tail roater in order to remain stable. The jet enjines alo might heat up the pusher prop and cause it to warp.

nice-looking aircraft. i wonder if it's better than the opsrey? should be, given its heavy armament.

the model looks very cool if it had a 50mm cannon on the front, anti-air, unguided rockets, tow missles and dual mini guns on the wings...

poi i dont know if u noticed but there is a (probably)canon above the missile and is probably maned by a 4-man crew. the cocpit looks similar to some of the older american figters eg. a-6
civilian?? pff lol

To answer grouchy's comment: The pusher prop located in the rear would simply disengage, or shut off while the helicopter performed in hovering flight. Stability might still be an issue, but that would reasonably be dealt with. And yes, I too would love to see this bird fly someday, but given the Russian current economic state and their current conflict with Georgia, I don't expect any of us to see this thing on youtube or the 11:00 news anytime soon. A beautiful piece of such potential though, I agree.
it would be extremely fast. wikipedia quoted the projected speed at up 400 km, although that seems optimistic. http: / /en.wikipedia.org /wiki /Kamov

Very slick but I wonder how quick this would be and how stable in hover flight...

I would love to see this thing in action...though maybe you could replace that missle with a minigun...

Have they thought about a civilian version of this aircraft?
Do you have any comments ?
