    Thanks for your answer but are you sure?

    Edit:

    I agree it looks more like a YUH-61, however not the same type Philip pictured. Look at the blunt nose of his picture compared to this one:

    Since the YUH-61 was never adopted it's possible that there were some production prototypes with different noses. Perhaps Philip's is one of those? Even the one I pictured above doesn't look exactly like the History Channel prop.
