    Helicopter Fact

    The Germans used helicopters for artillery spotting on the Russian front in WWII. The Germans also built and perfected a rotor-kite (helicopter with no engine) that was towed behind a U-Boat to increase the range at which targets could be spotted. (Since it had no power, there was no torque, and no need for a tailrotor.)
