Sikorsky SH-82A Whisperhawk by Bispro Sikorsky SH-82A Whisperhawk by Bispro
Straight from the Hollywood movie "6th Day" comes the Whispercraft™, a fictional helicopter designed by Ron Cobb. Using a photograph of the original "prototype" (a non-flying full-scale mockup) devoid of any markings, I created a "real-life" variant, the Sikorsky S-114 Whisperhawk.

This unique design will be procured by the U.S. Navy in late 2017, and be used mainly for ASW missions and rescue missions, respectively as the SH-82A and HH-82A.

Ok I usually follow your advise and don't believe everything I read.

But your description sounds like you're serious on this becoming a real flying aircraft,is this really gonna be built?

That's precisely why I care to add that warning message: the stories provided with the images are fake, and only meant to make the concept more realistic!!
This particular design was not my invention. It was actually created for the movie The Sixth Day with Arnold Schwarzenegger. I started from a photo of the unpainted mockup and recreated everything around it.

What's that grid/grille in the tail?
Some kind of vectoring thruster?

Likely Notar to try and compensate for the Torque of the main rotor. this is considered a Canard Rotor/Wing configuration. The Model used in the Sixth day was based on the X50. It never really worked though.
