Hey new painting is done ! about time too!
Thats a tribute to patlabor 2. I hope you like it.

! I've made a mistake, the rotor system is not correct, it needs two counterrotating rotors !

Contra-rotating. Counter-rotating only applies to twin engine, fixed wing aircraft.

They kind of remind me of the Jigabachis from Ghost in the Shell, only a lot meaner.

I really like these helicopters, they manage to look brutal and agile at the same time. As for rotors, I just assumed it used a NOTAR system to keep torque neutralized. NOTAR being a system for using thrust from the engine rather than thrust from a tail rotor to counteract
the torque from the rotors.

The AFH-02B Hellhound is equipped with a ducted fan that blows air through its tailboom and out of some slots on the right side.

Very Cool! I can hear "Flight of the Valkeries" playing in the backround. The amount of detail is incredible. Amazing work.

About the rotors.. I re-watched patlabor 2 the other day and I'm pretty sure you got the rotors right.

Nice work!

I'll let the lack of counter-rotating rotors (or alternatively, a tail rotor) pass imagining these as jetcopters with nozzles in the rotor tips.

It could have an internal gyroscope, then it wouldn't need the counter blades, or they could use vectored thrust to counter the torque...
