The actual question is,is there even a need for something like this?

At best very least it could be a replacement for the Apache and other attack helicopters. At worst, the CAS-1 would be something the US Army and Marines will need when the USAF gets a well deserved cut on it's runaway acquisition programs.

High-speed folded-rotor config capable helis are the dream evolution of the traditional rotary-wing.

Russia has been exploring this avenue as a "5th" gen design for a while now (see Ka-90), although a focus on logistical automation (Mi-38) higher speed (Mi-24 PSV) and RCS (Kamov in general) probably means this concept technology will be put on the back burner for a while, in favor of proven traditional designs.

Idk about other suggested concepts on the international field.

Something like the GBA-DARPA Heliplane would be more plausible. Though that program might be DOA when the Pentagon gets audited.

Looks like a maintenance nightmare. Makes the F-35 look like a Mig-21.

It is absolute hell. We won't see it for a long time.
