In 1976, Boeing Vertol teamed up with Bell's Helicopter Division on a proposal for the Army's PLR (Power Lift Rotorcraft) program.

Designated XV-16A in the VTOL series, this clean-looking and able performer combined Boeing's experience with transport helicopters and Bell's expertise in VTOL, in this case capitalizing on the tilt-duct research that culminated in the highly successful X-22A prototype a decade before.

The PLR program was canceled despite a successful two-year evaluation phase because it was found that its advantages did not outweigh the 35% increase in costs from operating it instead of a conventional Chinook.

Oh. I thought you wrote: Two engines in a near tandem configuration driving two rotors.   

The "Two engines in a near" and "configuration driving two" are silent.

Looks to a great build once you replace the Wright R-1820 (1,425 hp) with a R2600 or a R2800!
