This looks very cool, but I'm wondering what advantage this kind of aircraft has over a helicopter. I'm sure there must be some.

Being smaller, one of the advantages would be of landing in small places.

Another would be a smaller signature on the radars and better protection from heat-seeking missiles and its rotors being covered means better protection for the rotors from small arms fire.

I also don't see a tail rotor so it means that helicopter's Achilles heel will be missing.
