China has unveiled a new helicopter called "Super Great White Shark". For its appearance it has already been nicknamed "Ufo" by the media. Beijing has announced that this new "armed helicopter" has been designed for the "future battlefield of digital information". The "Global Times" has published a gallery of images of the aircraft, calling it a fusion of modern and proven helicopter projects such as the AH-64 Apache, the American Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion, the Russians Ka-52 and Mi -26. The mixed-wing design has also been used by "invisible planes" such as the US bomber Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit
The "White Shark" is a 7.6 meter long two-seater, almost three meters high and is equipped with external shells that conceal acute angles, making it in this way more difficult to detect by the radar. The prototype was exhibited last week at the "China Helicopter Exposition" in Tianjin.
