For those interested in this proposal, there's a brochure on eBay, ending in about 4 hours. From the one drawing, maybe even a pic of a mock-up, I've ever seen, which is all over the WWW as well, I've never figured out how it's an AH-56 derivative. The brochure, which the seller has conveniently scanned the whole thing, includes a 3 view with the specs. I printed the 3 view so I'm set. The Lord DOES work in mysterious ways. :) After seeing this 3 view, I'm even more confused as to how it's a Cheyenne derivative! Maybe it was for benefit of the government......... BTW, I have nothing to do with the auction. Just do a search for Lockheed CL-1700.

Looks like a way of using AH-56 technology bits and pieces to meet the AAH spec.

Now if they made the tail end of that -CL-1275- into an afterburner that would be seriously cool! ;D

Thanks. I would've posted them, but after the big copyright fiasco, if it ain't mine, I ain't posting it!

Wasn't the Cheyenne already an attack aircraft?

A helicopter IS an aircraft. Maybe you mean AIRPLANE?

For what it's worth, aircraft and airplane are roughly equivalent in meaning, although it is AIRCRAFT which can be considered as having a broader meaning. Theoretically, any flying machine could be called an "air craft" (aerial craft), even blimps or balloons. An airplane (originally spelt "aeroplane") was only one type of flying machines.

Now can you guys stop that nonsense? Filling pages with one misunderstanding after another? English-speakers need to accept the fact that not all members speak English fluently... and non-English-speakers need to accept the fact that they can make mistakes, and not constantly try to justify them. I may have to remove some of these useless posts.
