The MD 520N NOTAR is a small transport helicopter that only appears in Counter-Strike: Condition Zero Deleted Scenes.
The 520N is a small helicopter used by Counter-Terrorist forces, specifically the Kidotai, as a mini assault helicopter, a transport for special forces, or a small air ambulance. It is usually used by the Police to carry snipers, and small units, by the military, it is used to carry small number of troops, or as a small MEDEVAC (MEDical EVACuation) chopper. It is modeled after the real life MD520N, a helicopter variant of the MD500. Its small size makes it good to land on small areas, and makes it difficult to be hit by an RPG. Unlike Blackhawks or Hinds, they lack armament (weapons) and have little armor. Due to this, this helicopter was shot down with ease, as seen in Run!. NOTAR is sometimes confused with Mil Mi-34 and Boeing AH-6 Littlebird due to their similar appearance.
Below is a chart of comparison of helicopters, with speed, armament and armor.
