China Reveals Exotic Flying Saucer-Shaped “Armed Helicopter” Concept

Images have emerged online of a what may be a mockup of an unusual-looking circular “armed helicopter” ahead of the opening of a major helicopter exposition in China. This is not the first flying saucer-esque design to have appeared over the years and the Chinese are likely to face many of the same hurdles that these earlier aircraft faced in making the concept viable, especially in any sort of actual combat environment. Still, it does seem to reflect a broader and still-growing trend in advanced and novel aircraft design within China.
