A close up image of a composite rotor-blade punctured by a 20 mm round. The blade was developed by the Lockheed California Co. and held out much better than its metal counterpart to the gunfire. The blade was made with a geodesic design and was a composite of graphite and epoxy.

From Vertiflite, May/June 1975.
