Ka-25, N.I.Kamov 'Hormone'

(34k) For a while on the Net...

ASW helicopter with a short, stubby fuselage and contra-rotating, coaxial rotors. The contra-rotating rotors eliminated the need for an anti-torque tail rotor, and made a very compact design possible, with obvious benefits for shipboard operations.
