The Navy’s Next Heavy-Duty Helicopter – MondoWorks

Okay… so I am getting ahead of the game. Our design proposal for a heavy lift VTOL we tabled at Vertical Magazine – the Sikorsky Atlas. Inspired by Jerry Anderson’s Thunderbird 2, it would carry a variety of payloads from humanitarian to military via a set of ‘payload’ modules.  This week, defense manufacturers unveiled two separate vehicles each named “Stallion.” The King Stallion, by helicopter giants Sikorsky, is a heavy-lift cargo helicopter. In the future, it could transport troops and vehicles in war zones. You can read more about the reality vs. our fantasy at Popular Science Magazine.
