XHC-321 by TheXHS XHC-321 by TheXHS
The XHC-321 is a light multy-purpose helicopter (such as Mil Mi-2). Non typical in this design is a usage of one powerful engine (some such as TV-3-177 from Mi-24 or AI-24 from first testbed Mi-8). In other - typical light heli...

First AH-1 Cobra and UH-1 have only one engine.
I could find more example of military helicopter with single engine.
Yes, two or more engines better, sure - reliability, survivability, powerful etc...

Key features in this desing - large air-intake above cockpit - two intakes as Mi-8 - not still interesting for aesthetic reasons)

All of the U.S. Army Cobras were one engine helicopters,the Marine Cobras have two engines.

Yes I know, MH-6 or OH-56 also has one engine, but these are old constructions too. Still, one engine is quite risky.

Little Bird and Gazelle manage fine with one engine.
You only need two engines if you've a lot of weight to heft (transport helo, gunship).

This looks more like an observation helicopter.
Besides, one engine will surely suffice if it's powerful enough. Looks at the Harrier or F-35, for example.
