    There's talk on the Ru Net that Algeria is showing interest in buying 12 x Mi-26T2 helicopters.

    This is from June 2012

    Interesting Sujoy, but the chance of the Russian military adopting it over President-M is fairly slim... Wink

    The upgraded Mi-26T2 will go into production in 2015

    By the end of the current year the upgraded heavy Mi-26T2 helicopter should receive lettering indicating that it is a production model, and in 2015 it will enter serial production. The heavy lift helicopter will receive a new set of avionics developed by KRET. Thanks to its on-board equipment, the Mi-26T2 requires only two crew members and can perform flights around the clock and in all conditions.

    According to the Interfax news agency, the Mi-26T2 is currently undergoing preliminary flight testing, which will last approximately a month.  To date, there is one flying prototype of the Mi-26T2 helicopter, the agency reports. The Mi-26T2 will be produced commercially starting with the second production unit in Rostov-on-Don at the Rostvertol facility, which belongs to the Russian Helicopters holding. The first deliveries of the upgraded helicopter will begin in 2015.

    The Mi-26T2 is equipped with modern BREO-26 on-board avionics, which have been developed by KRET. At its heart is the NPK90-2 flight and navigation system, which is supported by NAVSTAR/GLONASS. The avionics system is also equipped with five LCD displays.

    In addition, the avionics of the Mi-26T2 integrate an around-the-clock gyrostabilized optoelectronic system, backup device system, modern communications system and on-board control system. Night vision goggles are also available as an additional option at the discretion of the customer.

    The BREO-26 system will significantly increase the reliability and flight safety of the Mi-26T2. It will also improve the stability and controllability of the helicopter, as well as the precision of its hovering flight, which is especially important when working with externally slung loads.

    Thanks to its new avionics, the Mi-26T2 can now fly at any time of the day and in fair or in adverse weather conditions, including over featureless terrain. In addition, the use of modern avionics has allowed for reducing the number of members of the helicopter crew from five to two.

    The Mi-26T2 can be used to transport bulky cargo and equipment either in the cargo cabin or suspended from an external sling. The maximum weight of cargo transported either inside the helicopter or from an external sling is 20 tons.

    The military version of the helicopter can carry 82 marines, and the ambulance or emergency response version will be able to carry up to 60 wounded people. It can also be used to carry out construction and installation works of varying degrees of complexity. In addition, the Mi-26T2 can perform rapid deliveries of fuel and autonomous refueling of various ground-based equipment. It can also fight fires, be used in logging or deployed to address a wide range of transport problems.

    Russian Arctic Helicopter Ready for Deliveries in 2015 - Source

    MOSCOW, August 8 (RIA Novosti) - Deliveries of the Mi-8AMTSh-VA helicopters, a variant of the Mi-8 medium twin-turbine transport helicopter modified for use in the Arctic, may begin as early as next year, Leonid Belykh, managing director of the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (UUAP), said Friday.

    “Basically, everything is ready. A prototype model is in the works, and it is all up to the Defense Ministry now. If we sign a deal this year, then we will start [the deliveries] next year,” Belykh told RIA Novosti.

    The aviation plant reported that the helicopter meets all the requirements in order to excel in the harsh weather conditions of the Far North. Its design will allow it to operate in low temperatures and low visibility, including during the polar night. The helicopter is also able to fly even in the case of navigation problems, for example, when it is without a satellite signal.

    The Mi-8AMTSh-VA model is developed based on the upgraded Mi-8AMTSh-V helicopter that features new Klimov VK-2500-03 turboshaft engines, a more powerful TA-14 auxiliary power plant and upgraded avionics.

    All i could find are figures for 2013, there were no less than 53 Mi-8AMTSh and 10 Mi-8MTV-5 delivered apparently.

    PS: This is from wiki, although it says that 53 is the total number delivered in 2013 (inaccurate, there were 63)
