    I was in one(but not flying in one) in Kiev last year, i posted pictures on the forum, as well as other aircraft, such as, Tu-95, Tu-22m, Mi-24, Mi-8 etc.
    i would say it a little smaller(space size) than a C130 Hercules i flew in when in the forces, not sure how many troops it can carry but id say a lot more than chinook maybe double the amount, when i flew in chinook we were never really packed in tight. (check page 7 on this thread for my pics of Mi-26/Mi-8/Mi24)

    I do have loads more pics, and i am away to North Korea in August for 2 weeks, but i highly doubt i will get a chance/be allowed to take pics of military items but you never know Wink

    and yet one more form KRET


    KRET developed a laser guidance system of missiles for helicopters

    http://vpk-news.ru/news/25842

    Concern Radio-electronic technology (KRET), belongs to the State Corporation Rostec, has developed a multi-channel laser-beam guidance system (SLS) for the Ka-52, Mi-8MNP, Mi-28N, which can also be installed in the ground equipment, MANPADS and drones. According to the press service of the concern.

    The new development will provide high precision missile guidance and allow helicopters to use missiles of various types.

    SLS is designed to complete the task and bring traffic control guided missile to the target captured and held a gun or maintenance by the operator.

    The system uses a powerful cw solid-state laser pumped by laser diodes. Scanning the laser beam is carried out compact, low-inertia, an acousto-optic deflector xy, without mechanical components and controlled by electrical signals. The product analog control field generated solely by mechanical means, resulting in a lower speed, reduced reliability, increased size and weight.

    "Concern was created for the production of highly intelligent and innovative systems and their introduction to the series. They must be universal, in other words - must be installed on the old and the new technique - first deputy general director Igor KRET Nasenkov. - Modern laser technology KRET fully meet these requirements. In particular, the SLS can be installed on helicopters and the ground equipment, MANPADS and drones. "

    The tests confirmed the high accuracy of the SLS guided missiles and high reliability of the developed equipment. Laser guidance system commercially available in enterprises KRET.

    Looks like the second Mi-171A2 prototype is ready to fly. It seems to have the new X-shaped tail rotor, in addition to new dust filters, presumbly the new main rotor as well.

    Nothing I have seen... only talk related to new UAVs and UCAVs about small light weapons optimised for such platforms... they also mention a 7 shot 80mm rocket pod and laser beam riding ATGMs like Krisantema and Kornet-EM.

    New Mi-38 multi-role helicopter will be presented at MAKS-2015 airshow
    Russian Aviaton » Wednesday July 29, 2015 16:01 MSK

    New Mi-38 multi-role helicopter will be presented at MAKS-2015 airshow, which will be held in August in Zhukovsky (Moscow Region), TASS reports with reference to press-service of Kazan Helicopters.

    “New Mi-38 helicopter will be presented this year at MAKS airshow in Zhukovsky,” the press-service noted. Assembly of the first production Mi-38s was started by Kazan Helicopters, “the first production helicopter of the type will be delivered to the customer in the first quarter of 2016,” TASS reports with reference to Kazan Helicopters CTO, Igor Bugakov.
    Follow us on: Follow ruaviation on Twitter

    “In accordance with the state contract the type certificate should be obtained in December 2015, but now the goal is to obtain it prior to the opening of MAKS-2015 airshow,” Bugakov said. In October 2014 Kazan Helicopters started testing of the new Mi-38 multi-role helicopter, which may be used for transporting cargo or passengers, may take part in search-and-rescue operations and can be used as a flying hospital. The helicopter is fitted with main and tail rotors made of composites. The powerplant includes two TV7-117V turboshaft engines developed by Klimov design bureau (each engine has a power of 1753 kW). Avionics suite allows pilots of Mi-38 to operate the helicopter under severe conditions: perform automatic flight in accordance with a given route, land the helicopter, carry out automatic hovering and stabilization of the vehicle in all flight regimes.

    This helicopter is going to be a revolution when it enters production.

    From what I can gather, it's completely automated or rather is capable of being operated in that way - it can conduct landings/take-offs, and flight w/o a pilot.
    Unlike a UAV, it's capable of doing this all on auto-pilot

    Imagine if they start setting them up for automatic, unmanned supply runs, removing the need for a pilot for the simplest, most routine sortees.. or perhaps for the simple but dangerous ones.

    The future T3 version will share the same engine as the in development Russian-Chinese very heavy lift helicopter

    Hm... I was kind of thinking the Chinese were aiming for something akin to Mi-46 project, with smaller engines/MTOW...
    What would be the difference between the JV and a 26T3 if they have identical engines (and MTOW/payload)?
    I would think that a hybrid/pusher design could save alot of fuel/range/payload, that could be difference between Chinese JV and a 26T3...?
    I remember EADS forever talked up creating their own "med-hvy" lifter using drivetrain of CH-53K, but new fuselage/etc.  Similar here? (but not just paper?)

    The Mi-26 needs a new engine as the old one was supplied by the Ukraine.

    It just so happens that the Russian-Chinese heavy lift helicopter needs a new engine too. What I read in an article anyway; they're most likely to be one and the same for both.

    Perhaps they will be 2 closely-related engines, or the Mi-26 one will be downrated.

    It'll probably won't be downrated, Rostec said specifically that the new Russian-Chinese variant of the Mi-26 would be more powerful, with a larger payload capacity, likely both versions will be powered with more powerful engines.

    Can i ask please the mods to merge Mi-38 to this thread, because it is rather lonely thread with fewer posts and we can keep transport helicopters with their modifications in here since most people do not flood this thread anyway like others.


    Anyways...

    Russia's Mi-8 Helicopter Ready for Arctic Duty

    A modified version of the Mil Mi-8 transport helicopter, designed for Russia's Ministry of Defense, has been prepared to venture into the Arctic and operate in up to -50 degrees Celsius.

    The Russian Helicopters design and manufacturing company "is working on the new Mi-8AMTSh-VA helicopter designed to be used in the Arctic and the Extreme North. The development stage is over and the rotorcraft is expected to undergo testing in the second half of 2015," company's CEO Alexander Mikheev said during the MAKS-2015 air show.

    Hey I have skimmed the thread looking for information on whether or not the production and development of the Mi-26T2 and contract deliveries to Algeria is being effected by the annulling of Ukrainian and Russian Military Cooperation. I know a lot of Mi-26 are being refurbished and rebuilt but are actual newly built Mi-26 receiving engines from Ukraine or has this work stopped? Dmitry Rogozin said that development of localized D-136 turboshaft is planned in the future for the joint Chinese and Russian heavy lift helicopter and export replacement, for the mean time what is being done to keep the deliveries of Mi-26 from falling behind like the Admiral Grigorovichv class frigate?
