I have to say no, since i'd rather have multi crew attack chopper like Apache, Cobra, Mi-24 or something similar.

And come that revolution, would you rather a great big helicopter came along to rescue you, or an Apache?

Seriously though, I'd love a Chinook, and I'd love an Apache too. But I said yes here anway.

Mi-24 is already under development, Cobra if I recall correctly also or at least planned. Nothing about AH-64.
Though probably there would be more more incentive and a chance for wider interest if the transport heli capaple of equipping some armamemnt rather than one that can take it provided that it is loaded into its cargo bay Pretty much like Huey or Hip today.

Big helicopters huh ok give us the Mi-26 helicopter since it is biggest in the world and it can carry airliners.

YES FOR CH-53 (I'd love having one with air refueling capability). Doesn't really matter actually I just want to lift some weights.

CH-53 or CH-53E would be fabulous. A UH-60 would also be great, and allows for many variations.

Genuinely not as interested in a chinook / puma or other euro medium/heavy lift helos.

Don't you know your Firefly quotes (opening of Episode 2, "The Train Job")?

Wash: "Every man there go back inside, or we will blow a new crater in this little moon."
[Crew gets rescued]
Jayne: "Damn locals can't even tell a transport ship ain't got no guns on it."

If someone pulls that stunt with a Chinook, I'm guessing it'll be quite impressive as well.

I'd rather you spend your time on more interesting modules. Spending time on an LHA and large utility helicopters means we aren't getting cooler stuff sooner.
