History WMG / Airwolf

Go To

Added DiffLines:

** The fact that Airwolf is sometimes in danger of being discovered by people with less resources than Archangel means the two aren't mutually exclusive; presumably Archangel would have no trouble gaining use of the satellite that scoured the entire country for Airwolf's hiding spot, for example, without warning Hawke about like he did when someone else was using it, but he would gain nothing from doing so.
[[WMG: Project Proteus was Moffat's first attempt at Airwolf]]
At the beginning of the scene at Red Star, the Senator is extremely unimpressed when he sees Airwolf, immediately dismissing it out of hand. He's more than open-minded enough to change his mind as soon as he sees it in action, but he clearly has overspending on defense equipment in mind, if not an outright aversion to military helicopters for their high cost. If he was actually providing some degree of oversight at White Sands instead of being brought in once something was already finished the way Archangel shows him Airwolf, it's not much of a stretch to imagine that Proteus ''was'' Airwolf, canned as soon as the Senator saw it was a project to build an "overgrown beanie with a propeller on top." He's told about Airwolf's special capabilities before seeing it in action and is still dismissive until the actual demonstration, so the promise of what the project could do wouldn't have swayed him. Moffat was later able to go through different channels and start all over again.

It's not like the Soviets cared that much about Intellectual Property.
