Takeoff and landing would be a very exciting affair with such a long fuselage and such short main landing gear. At least the ventral fins would protect the engines.

Probably some fixes are needed , and i agree that landing gears should be taller , i will maybe fix this .

In 2016, the fictive 6th french republic introduced the Espadon, designed by Salasx , a fictive corporation who cooperated with Dassault Aviation, Airbus helicopter and Thales to design a lightweight, low noise, fast and stealth helicopter able to be deployed from a warship .
Initially using a fictive navalised variant of the Tiger , the French navy requested a small helicopter, that would fight in low intensity combat zones and that could also carry a small payload and a 30mm machinegun . This helicopter wasn't designed to carry a lot of weapon, it had to attack quickly a target and return safely to the home ship .

3 prototypes were made, with one being similar to the S-97 . Only the latest had the low noise attributes needed .
Unfortunaly, unlike expectations, the helicopter was 1.6 heavier than planned, but it's insane speed , it's low noise flight attributes and it's efficient stealth convinced Salasx to produce thoses .
Initially, 3 helicopters were made for the Serie 1 , followed by 36 helicopters from the serie 2 .
During the war against terrorism, the Espadon proven to be a perfect helicopter for black operations, quickly gaining notoriety for it's unpreceded attributes . In the beginning of the 2020s, the design started to become obsolete, but whatever, Salasx had acquired the knowledge for a newer design .
