This is coolbert:
From the Russell Military Museum, Russell, IL., USA we have this image of a fiberglass mock up, a proposed design for a ground attack, close air support [CAS] tilt rotor aircraft.
Controversial as to the identity but without question [?] an American design, those Soviet markings applied after the fact for display purposes.
A tilt rotor warplane having one mini-gun [7.62 mm] front and rear, that aircraft unique to modern designs in that it has a TAIL GUNNER!
This tilt rotor warplane never built, a concept only, the owner of the military museum confident that this WAS NOT A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE PROP!
Estimated cost of the mold for a one-of-a-kind mock-up about $1 million US.
Anyone have a good idea as to the origins and provenance' of this mock-up? From various Internet forums the consensus being that this WAS a Hollywood movie prop and nothing more.
