I think this is a cool chopper! It kind-of looks like a Pug. Is the applique tank hanging under the body for fire supression?

I'd be willing to bet that this becomes a historic photo. I bet it is shown over and over again through the years. It's that good.

Nice detail, and I agree with the photographer... you can feel the chill in the air. As for the first comment, the KA-31 is an AEW platform, the "tank" you reference is actually the radar, folded and tucked up underneath.

This is an early warning helicopter used by the navy, the slab under the helicopter is a radar and rotates down then spins around to search for targets
