Westland Scout

This helicopter has a four blade main rotor and a two blade tail rotor. The fuselage and tail boom have external, horizontal stiffners. The turboshaft engine is not covered and the horizontal stabiliser with small oval end plates is put directly underneath the end of the tail boom. The front, in particluar the short nose and window configuration, reminds a bit of a locust/grasshopper. The Scout is very similar in appearance to the Westland Wasp, the wheeled navy version.
