Looks like an Aerospatiale Gazelle,

But without the fenestron.

thanks for the reply Ben.

It's the rear (wheel) landing and nose gear thats baffleing me. I'm sure i've seen it somewhere.

together with the nose wheel it allows the heli to "taxi" around the airfield

I am sure I have seen gazelles outfitted with landing gear like that - looks kinda like a sikorsky S 52 though except for the turbine engine.

Is that from a holographic display? If so, they may have made something up.
