    1977










    Mil Mi-26 Halo

    The Mi-26 first flew on December 14, 1977 as the replacement of the Mi-6 Hook and is still the biggest operational Helicopter of the World. Can carry up to 150 troops ( 90 usually ) or lift up to 20 tons, a similar capacity of a Lockheed C-130 Hercules aircraft. The Mi-26 was the first helicopter to operate successfully with an 8 blades main rotor.

    Basic variants includes the Mi-26MS for medical evacuations (MedEvac), the Mi-26TM flying crane and the Mi-26TZ fuel tanker. Russian Helicopters launched production of Mi-26T2 in 2015
