    Well, "project" is good. But that would be WONDERFUL. It is necessary that he would be embodied in metal and take off, and as quickly as possible and most importantly, then repeated in many copies. Since the Mi26, the vehicle is needed for our army

      So Mi-26 released under contracts with the MO. However, there is a need for everything, since there are no new contracts. MO is the largest Mi-26 operator in the world.

      As for the project, the Algerian T2 was taken as a basis. 2 people control the helicopter (3 if there is an external suspension) - now 5 people + 1 on the suspension. Significant relief and cost reduction of routine operations, synchronization of repair and inspection cycles - in general, a lot has been done for maintenance.

      What are you talking about ?
      The Mi-26 has long been "embodied in metal and flies."
      The news is just about making changes.
      What exactly, what they consist of is unspecified.
      Those. another empty piece of news without any details.

    We included all the innovations that were implemented as part of the project for the Algerian side.
    Fine. On the Algerian order, the innovations have been tested, now they can be installed for our own. Yes, and
    and a number of innovations that we offer exclusively for the Russian Ministry of Defense

    The new project promises to be interesting. And what is the army’s need for these helicopters (maybe a regiment for each district?) And how much can the defense industry give to the detriment of Algeria and our other partners. Now without quotes, it’s profitable to work with them, our weapons they buy a lot. Not so long ago they said that they were going to cooperate with the Chinese in the production of heavy helicopters in Chinese factories from our main components. It would not be better to realize it at all. That's why you can’t be launched into this area, where we occupy the first place.

      In the peak issue, under the contract of MO - was raised 6 Helicopters for 2012 year. They would have raised 6 in 2013 as well - but the MO did not duplicate, therefore, the final contract 6 cars were extended to 2 of the year, having raised 3 cars in 2013 and 2014.

      Of the limiters of the release, there may be new components, there is a unique avionics complex from the KRET-26 from KRET, the question with engines is also open - the only manufacturer Ivchenko-Progress. The new engine for the Russian-made Mi-26 is in the plans.

    Mi-26 is a brilliant car. If you give her new engines and avionics, she will last 40 years.

    We again go to the same rake - the state does not currently need these helicopters, so the manufacturer wants to earn some money so as not to fire the workers.
