S-92 CYCLONE | VIP HELICOPTER
The S-92 is multi-purpose helicopter used in the VIP transportation role by the New Hayesalian Army, though it's crews are members of the New Hayesalian Army, Navy, and rarely the Royal Montmarian Guard. The aircraft is commonly used for the transportation of key government figures and foreign dignitaries, and can be air-transported overseas for use in other nations. The aircraft commonly carries the Prime Minister of New Hayesalia and the Montmarian Monarch, as well as visiting foreign leaders.
The aircraft is powered by twin GE CT7-8A turboshaft engines and has an aluminum airframe with some composite components. The four-bladed fully articulated composite main rotor blade is wider and has a longer radius than the Sikorsky S-70. The tapered blade tip sweeps back and angles downward to reduce noise and increase lift. Most of the rotor system components aside from the blades are titanium.
The S-92 features an active vibration control system, using vibration sensors and structurally mounted force generators to increase flight comfort and lower acoustic levels to below certification requirements.
The military VIP variant of the S92 possesses countermeasures to defeat the targeting and guidance systems of missiles. It is "hardened" against the electromagnetic pulse of a nuclear explosion or EMP blast. It posseses sophisticated onboard communications, including the ability to hold secure video conferences with military and government leaders worldwide—including the commanders of New Hayesalia's military. It features crew compliments including a small galley, restroom, and seating for 11 persons, with a seat reserved for the Prime Minister or Monarch. The interior cabin is 6 foot, one inch, high, reducing the need for occupants to duck while inside the helicopter.
