Default New Helicopter, World speed record, 260 knots.

Last month, Sikorsky tested its AX coaxial-rotor helicopter and achieved a speed of 260 knots.. For those of you not versed in ancient maritime and Aviation speed units, that makes this particular helicopter the fastest on the planet by about 100 of such knots.

The previous record was a little closer than 100 knots. The old record was 249 knots by the Westfield LYNX ZBX-500 in 1986. But this thing kicks arse!!!! Like to see AFSOC or the SOAR get some of these.
