Yes i'm well aware of the state of electronics in '82, and would think that the silent mode was mostly shaped blades, rear pitch etc, but then the electronics we see & what the military have, are worlds apart. The early processors were developed for guiding early ICBM's and it's amazing what you can do with just 256Kb of code.
