The tiltrotor fighter aircraft is a fictional VTOL tiltrotor military aircraft utilised by Dr. Julius No's alternate-universe underworld army. Created for the 2004 James Bond spin-off video game GoldenEye: Rogue Agent, the aircraft is notable for its use as Dr. No's personal aircraft and is used to ambush the player character during a botched assassination attempt in Hong Kong.


Utilised by Dr. Julius No's paramilitary forces during his feud with Auric Goldfinger, the unnamed aircraft is a large tiltrotor aircraft with retractable landing gear, a V-tail configuration, and one three-bladed proprotor and engine mounted on each wingtip. For takeoff and landing, it typically operates as a helicopter with the nacelles vertical and rotors horizontal. Once airborne, the nacelles rotate forward 90° for horizontal flight, converting the aircraft to a higher speed turboprop aircraft. Other orientations are possible, allowing the aircraft to hover over the battlefield. The aircraft is armed with a nose-mounted, forward-facing missile launcher.
