For the rotor :-|... the only thing I can say is that it is a supertunning Bell UH-1. ;D

I'm going to a "Asado Argentino" so for some hours or day I'll be out of service... :P
If I hit, open house.

Your close loco … she has some UH-1 in her … but she's another designation altogether.  :)

It's not the size of the wand that matters. It's the quality of the magic it performs.

Good research "Adam son of Eldor" (sounds epic). ;)
It's good to see the people you love around here!
(read on the board "the lunge: last post by eldor" was shocking and hopeful) :o

I'm sure you hit the nail on the Bell UH-1 Huey "Stealth Star"
I also found another that I'm sure is a derivative of that:

Hopefully, the friend DHumphrey will soon reveal the incognita ;D

Adam and loco, you guys are all over it.  Well done !!!  :)

Aerocraft Stealth Star 204 SS
 
A very rare gunship helicopter modified from the Bell UH-1B Iroquois with tandem seating for the pilots and a troop-carrying compartment. In 1990, Bell UH-1B Hueys were stripped down to the engine, transmission and tail boom. A complete armored composite structure was added, the flight controls and seating were modified to a tandem layout, with pilot in front and copilot at the rear. The third and fourth weapons operators were placed in the rear portion of the fuselage firing weapons to the rear. The outer fuselage mounts stub wings, two glazed gun turrets/observation windows under each side of the engine with rear-facing 20mm gun turret under the fuselage, and two forward-facing 12.7mm turrets under the cockpit. The prototype (N3080W ex U.S. Army 63-8508) uses a 1300 shp Avco Lycoming T53-L-13 turboshaft engine and had a gross take-off weight of 4280 kg. First flight was October 1991. The basic Penetrator is said to be air-to-air, air-to-ground and ground-to-ground combat capable, using modified technologies. It has been in development and can be seen on Stealthstar.



locopiston, I guess it's your turn as Adam deferred.

Vultee V-61, an early design stage (with a pointed nose) towards the P-66 Vanguard.
A complicated story as it seems.

http://www.joebaugher.com/usaf_fighters/p66.html

"The P-48 aircraft was to have been powered by a Pratt & Whitney R-1830-S4C4-G air-cooled radial engine rated at 1200 hp for takeoff and 900 hp at 15,400 feet. According to the initial plan, the engine was to be enclosed in an orthodox cowling similar to that fitted to the Curtiss P-36. However, during construction it was decided to switch to an unorthodox long and pointed cowling on order to reduce aerodynamic drag. In order to accommodate the long and pointed cowling, the engine was fitted with a lengthened drive shaft. Engine cooling was provided by a retractable air intake fitted beneath the nose immediately behind the propeller spinner. The nose of the P-48 looked a lot like the nose of the abortive Curtiss XP-42.

The Model P-48 was given the civil designation NX21755, and was flown for the first time in September of 1939 by test pilot Vance Breese. The name *Vanguard* was chosen. Unfortunately, the Model P-48 ran into the same sort of engine cooling problems that bedeviled the Curtiss XP-42. After a few flights with the initial cowling configuration, the variable air intake underneath the nose was fixed in the open position and another scoop was added above the cowling. At the same time, the rudder area was increased.

[...]

The production version of the Model P-48 was to have been designated Model 61, but by the time of the P-48's landing accident it had already been decided to give up on the pointed-nose for the Vanguard, since the drag reduction that it provided was insufficient to justify the increased weight and the cooling problems that it caused. Consequently, the second prototype Vanguard, the Model 48X (NX19999), reverted to the orthodox radial engine cowling that had originally been planned. The Model 48X made its first flight on February 11, 1940."
