Ah, a helicopter, you might say. But its not an ordinary helicopter.
The first thing you notice about the Kama K-1200 is that it has no tail. To make up for it, it has two main rotors. The interesting thing is that the rotors overlap--a lot. Kind of like egg beaters. The thing is also very narrow, just wide enough for one person, so it looks kind of like somebody smashed it in a vise or something. Using a light-weight high-power turbine, the helicopter (which weighs a little under 6,000 pounds), can lift its own weight in cargo (another 6,000 pounds); making it popular for crane operations, logging and other cargo operations.
Unfortunately for some reason, only 27 were ever made, though the company supposedly started up production of a variation designed for fire-fighting in 2005. Certainly an odd creation, but I'm always glad to see people thinking up unique ideas to age old problems.
