MOSCOW, August 20. /TASS/. Russia’s newest Mil Mi-26T2 heavy helicopter will be adapted for operation in the Arctic conditions, rotorcraft manufacturer Russian Helicopters Deputy Head Roman Chernyshev said on Thursday.
‘We’re completing work on this helicopter and serial deliveries to our customers are already underway. At present, we’re studying jointly with the Defense Ministry the issue of adapting the helicopter for the Arctic region," Chernyshev said.
Mi-26T2 is a modernized version of the Mi-26T (Halo) gunship with new avionics, which helps reduce the crew to two-three men and use it at night. Serial production of the Mi-26T2 helicopter was launched in May.
Previous reports said Russian Helicopters already had several contracts signed for the delivery of Mi-26T2 helicopters. In particular, news came in February that Rostvertol, which is integrated in Russian Helicopters Group, had started manufacturing six such helicopters for the Algerian Air Force.
