Coming soon will be a new version of the Mi-26T2

Over the next two years, the Russian government plans to create a new version of the heavy military helicopter Mi-26Т2. This week, a tender was held. According to the results, the tender was won by OAO "Moscow Helicopter Plant. Mile". Recall that this plant is part of the holding company "Helicopters of Russia".

Currently, the plant is working on fine-tuning and testing of Mi-26Т2 helicopters for Algeria. Accordingly, the bulk of the work will be carried out in the second half of 2014. It is planned that the new version of the helicopter will appear in mass production next year. The plant plans to deal with the documentation, design, testing and launching the mass production of the new helicopter.

Thus, it is worth noting that Russia continues to update its fleet with military aviation equipment. All developments are made on a competitive basis. Only Russian factories take part in the development of military equipment.
