    XC-120 must have been based on the C-119.

    Does the pilot actually have a rifle and a fixed bayonet?

    I remember this one watching in Discovery.

    The US actually started a program way back ago for Flying Soldiers. Although the program got cancelled for various reasons!!

    You are worried about a rifle and a bayonet, heck I am more worried about the spinning vortices of doom all around him. Nobody needs to shoot at him. Just tell a good joke and watch him fall into the rotors.

    You know what, if I were standing on that helicopter when I read your post, I'd be dead by now. :pound:

    On a normal day, I would rather stab myself with the bayonet than stand on it.

    He does not need the rifle and certainly not the bayonet. The rotor of that contraption can chop off the heads of the enemies...

    These kind of contraptions may actually be more dangerous to riders than the enemies (just imagine that guy falling off the side of the chariot, or the US soldier off his pedestal...)... :shocked:

    Exactly, see P2Prada's post. He said the same thing.

    Imagine the alerted Enemy fired few rounds over the open target. Forget stealth and first shoot advantage, The rotor sound will alert the enemy even before the soldier comes to location.

    Even if he survived the bullet raining, the rotors will sure slice him up.

    Guys the other day India celebrated some event in the remembrance of an AIRCRAFT which was designed by INDIA during the 1971 war and they said the fighter was to fast to control and the pilots were not able to fly and described as a coffin and so it was not inducted into the airforce....
