More important question: If you're using fractional accounting, why isn't it 11 tons?

It saved ~£100k, IIRC.

£1,103,674.93, then?  :-\ I'm guessing chintzy so'n'sos disagree. We both like the armor, but the target audience customer? :blank:

You know... a Recon Camera is all you really need... a BAP is kind of overkill...  ^-^

Actually, I'm seeing the Recon Camera not mentioned under "concealing information, " and "double-blind" (TO pp.219~224): The pp.337~338 listing is an orphan?  :-\

Technically, tmk, you can do that today. Either the single axle counter-rotating type, which is pretty much a standard mast mount, and on those rather.....dubious.....intermeshing dual rotors, in which case the helicopter can actually mount TWO mast mounts. Obviously not in the game format (yet?) but it is actually possible IRL.

Back in the '80s they even had trials on a modified Chinook where the aft of the two rotors had a mast mount. Not sure how that would exactly help, but it was attempted.

Missing  what I want in a recon VTOL . The ability to rapidly put out a remote sensor network around your Landing Zone . No remote sensoer Dispenser.  I went far more expensive experimental for such though cheap and disposable is just as viable  a choice .

I don't think I've built an egg-beater with both a mast mount and a Sensor Dispenser.

Hell: I think we just found the excuse to Omni a 'copter, (or pre-Omni, as per the Mercery.)
