    most likely because they didn’t want the parts to be reused by the enemy. Just like the railroads, they used a different gauge then everyone else.

    So…the French are the only one of U. S. allies to have something in common with the country that just reminded us that they can bitch-spank our friends into a hole in the ground and there’s jack-all we can do about it… and that somehow makes the French look weak?

    There is no explanation on the blades. People just do shit weird, and there’d be no difference in performance, as the propulsion would still be the same, they just have the yaw of the blades spun the other direction.

    @Kaze: I disagree. I think that if a blade spins one way, it would have a certain advantage in turning one way, seeing as the back rotor spins to counter act the main rotors.

    Or at least something like that…
