That might change with additional propulsion propellers. Unloading the rotors and use most (all?) of power on the propellers would give the additional wings a different perspective. Make them foldable/turnable in hover would solve that issue too.

Like most things as they get older, weight.  Chinook has been weight challenged for a long time already.  Last two mods (I may be wrong here) have done little more than regain the lift weight it Chinook is suppose to have by specification.

Recently had a MH-47G drop in for fuel at our local airport.  Just look at all the add ons that add to the weight challenge.....

Enjoy the Day! Mark

All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics.   TSR.2 got the first three right - Sir Sydney Camm
