ALH VIP Transport Helicopter
After the collapse of Illioran Arms, Allanean Arms bought out the Illioran Arms corporation. Many of the designs and production facilities of that company were then recovered and improven upon Based on the SAM-44 design once prodced by Illioran Arms, the ALH (Allanean Luxury Helicopter) has been produced as a son and heir to the venerable ALH.
The ALH is not only equipped with a small kitchen, white-leather seats for the personnel within (optionally available in MassPwnagian Tyrannosaurus Rex leather), but also with modern communication facilities – a satlink encrypted Internet connection, direct-tightbeam communication array, and short-range radio. The usual standard navigation gear is also present on board.
This oversized vehicle is also used to transport the leaders of the various parties in the Senate of the United States of Allanea (President Kazansky does not resort to government-provided transportation on prinicple, and maintains his own fleet of helicopters, planes, and other equipment).

Helicopters don't have such weight:MTOW ratios. At best, you'd be looking at 1:2 (8,000:16,000), but that's for a stripped-out raw-function Mi-26 or CH-47.
For a heavy luxury vehicle, you'd have an empty weight of 10,000-11,000 kg. Pick any number in this range that you like, say 10,240.
Fix the rotors. If it's a tandem rotor, both should be identical or near-identical. As the pic shows two 4-blade rotors, best to stick to that.
MAAM... Medium AtA missiles? Better ditch that. These can't be used without full combat avionics, besides, a fighter or an AtA helicopter will rip a transport apart anyway.
But if you really want, you could mount tubes for MANPADS - Stinger, Igla, MLSA-11. These are more or less self-contained. Won't do much, but they might deter an opportunistic attacker on a Cessna, I guess.
