Here's the next challenge (Stingray, you're not allowed to participate!!!). Again I want the manufacturer's designation and if possible the (tentative) commercial name...

Why am I the only one people kick out of these challenges?! LOL!

(Though, I would've passed it up anyway.)

Because you're a nerd on any and ALL kind of obscure rotorcraft!

Search your feelings, you know it to be true. wink

Though I stated before that I don't know every single one, I can't argue with that bit of logic. Sometimes I think I'm the only enthusiast on this planet who knows about the "Burwell helicopter", for example. hmm

Don't forget Mr. Burwell's grandchildren and nephews, they probably heard about it too!!

Is this a concept by Bell?

IIRC, this is one of the CTR designs. I have no clue as to the specific variant.

I was gonna say the same thing... It looks exactly like the CTR-7500 proposal but with the twin tails of the smaller CTR-1900...

 Okay!

Here's today's mystery variant. Shouldn't be too hard.

The V-tail and canards are present for both models, but the CTR-7500 differs from the CTR-1900 in having a larger fuselage to accomodate additional seats.

Wait, just found the concept art Gunship posted. It's definitely a CTR-7500, but a different design.

Looks like Stephane wins.

Is it just me, or does the co.ckpit configuration in the side-view look inconsistent with that in the top-view?

You are right. Not only does the scale of the two images seem different, but there are two different variants depicted here: "Appareil à grande vitesse" (high-speed machine) and "Hélicoptère de combat" (which speaks for itself).

Ha ha! That's a Filper Beta. I'm not sure it was done in this game, but surely it was covered in a forum page not so long ago...
