    We investigate the properties of rotating He3-A in the absence of a magnetic field. For fast rotating He3-A (c1) we find a transition from the type-I lattice of nonsingular vortex textures discussed by Fujita et al. to a lattice of singular 2 vortex textures with polar cores at a rotation speed of =(2m3)(3LD)-232 rad/sec for TTc. A second transition to a lattice of singular vortices occurs at a much higher rotational speed 10-1 c2. We also discuss ion mobility and sound attenuation in these vortex textures.
