Possibly removing the jet rotor pods and perhaps fitting new engines. Maybe a name change along the way, but this would have seen service with the Air Force, Navy, Marines and the Army, even the being part of the Presidents' fleet.
QuoteThe EH-101 Merlin was actually selected as the new presidential helicopter 'Marine 1' but the order was cancelled, ostensibly to save money, but NBH may have fed into the decision too. If it had been adopted and proved good, you could credibly have seen it in wider US service.
