The SFS V-52 Blackfish is a Sokalan multi-mission, tiltrotor military aircraft with both vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capabilities. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.

The research and development of the V-52 Blackfish started in 1963, funded by Sokala, Tuvaltastan, Xiopothos and Vistaraland. The program cost over 40 million South Hills Dollars.
