XHC-322 by TheXHS XHC-322 by TheXHS
The XHC-322 is a light multy helicopter. Its engine have two contour - internal contour used for main rotor, external contour used for NOTAR system and produce some thrust for forward motion and acces high flight speed (with autorotation of main rotor with low pitch angle).
Armed by two machineguns and four anti-tank missiles at two harpoints (also its can use for guided and free-drop airbombs and unguided rockets). Equiped by hi-res TV and FLIR camera

Hey, you should check this out. I made an attempt at building the helicopter in Minecraft. It's not a perfect design but I tried to get what I could from the view shown in the drawing you did. derekfrostwestbrook.deviantart…

I like that it's essentially small profile (leaving out the engines) and the shape makes it somewhat aerodynamic if you could retract the rocket/missile pods somewhere.

I'm no aeronautical engineer or nothin', so maybe I'm asking things that's easy to explain or look up.

With three turbine engines (I'm assuming the rotor is powered by a turbine), isn't it kind of heavy and fuel limited? I don't see a tail rotor, how does it counteract the main rotor's torque? Wouldn't two fixed turbofan engines in that position have problems being directly under a working rotor's currents? What's the pod at the top for?

Does it have an autocannon more powerful/versatile than the machinegun that links to the FLIR/TV pod?

About tail rotor - this one used NOTAR system, such sa MD-500 Defender - compressed air, picked from the engine, is ejected through a nozzle at the end of tail boom.
This have only two engine - rotor powered by its to - two shaft passed through the nacelle pylons.
About autocannon - yes, you right =)

Cool. I didn't know about the NOTAR system. I think it'd look cooler and more informative if the autocannon was more prominent though.

вполне подходит для военных действий в джунгляхЪ

The first anti-tank missile they fire, say good bye to your gunner and his machinegun. lol

I can find solution of this problem.
As example - before launch missile gunner retract his machine gun inside (its mounted at rotary beam).
