Spitfire "Taurus" / "Super Kania"
Permalink Closed

In August 1978, PZL-Swidnik made an agreement with the Spitfire Helicopter Company for them to market a modified version of the Kania in Western countries under the name "Spitfire Taurus." It was to have uprated Allison 250-C28 turboshaft engines fed by a single large intake, plus a revised nose design and a ventral fin.

It's unknown if any actual conversions were completed since the company went out of business, but at least one example was built in mockup form only.

I've seen it designated "Taurus II" as well. Which is correct?
