November 24, 2014

Russia is not satisfied with having already built the largest and most powerful helicopter in service on the planet: the Mi-26 “Halo”, manufactured in the late 1970s. Taking into account that the Mi-26 is more than 40 meters long and capable of lifting up to 20 tons in flight, the new Russian and Chinese helicopter will be a real beast.

If all goes ahead, the technical details and configuration of this new device will be finalized and announced next February. It was speculated that it would be a modified and modernized version of the Mi-26T2, but in the end it seems that it will be a completely new design, from scratch.

It is believed that the helicopter could be capable of lifting up to twice the weight of the Mi-26, that is, about 36 tons (or more), which is huge.

via China and Russia they will build the largest and most powerful helicopter in the world.
