This was another attempt by I.P.Bratukhin to build helicopter for some practical application above technology demonstration. It had side-by-side cockpit for pilot and navigator, and observer cockpit behind the wing. The rest of fuselage could be used to carry 2-3 passengers and/or photoequipment.
Above the cockpit and at the extreme tail unarmed spherical turrets were installed (for demonstration?).
There was an option to make main gear retractable backwards.
At the time on the 'decision-making level' attention was shifted to competing schemes of helicopters (under influence of Western designs). Despite B-10 was performing well, it failed to catch any interest 'in The High Circles'.
