First look at AW-101 in IAF colours




Sadly for worthless VIP transport.

I always wondered why the 101 had 3 engines when helos much larger have made do with 2. Are they just using smaller engines for economy sake? Was it decided that in case of an engine failure 1 larger one wouldn't do, but 2 smaller ones could?

Only other 3-engined helo I know is the CH-53E and that's a LOT bigger.
