Background of the AH-56A Cheyenne:

Following a hotly-contested design competition, Lockheed received in March 1966 the US Army contract for development of an Advanced Aerial Fire Support System helicopter to replace the armed helicopters of the time. A dynamic test model was completed in May 1967 and the first flight of a genuine AH-56A prototype took place on September 21, 1967. One of the dramatic design features is the narrow fuselage cross-section which is made possible by the tandem seating arrangement of Pilot and Gunner. Unfortunately, a fatal crash of one of the prototypes, development delays, and the political climate led to the cancellation of the overall program.

    Not sure if I'll build or use for spares to repair original issue with sentimental value. Looks just like original and maybe decals are upgraded and more items on them. Definitely buy if you want a Cheyenne! Only four stars just because it is an Aurora, otherwise a five.
