MI-26T helicopterThe MI-26T is a civilian version of the MI-26 developed by “Rostov-Mil” Experimental Design Bureau. On the one hand, the modernized machine retains the unique primary performance, on the other hand it has increased transportation capacity, especially for operations with external sling. The construction and erection works capabilities are also enhanced. There are greater functioned versions created on the base of theMI-26T.

In 1985 the MI-26T was introduced into mass production, and in 1986 the first machines were handed over to the costumers, such as the Aeroflot.
The MI-26T was demilitarized by removing armor protection and odd military equipment such as the weaponry. At the same time, the helicopter is fitted with auxiliary systems for effective cargo handling. For example, when transporting with external sling, the azimuth orientation system locks the cargo in necessary position and the modal suppression system prevents it from swinging. The helicopter is fitted with electronics which provides high-precision cargo weighing; special tooling system - for sea container delivering and gripping mechanism - for operating with large tubes and timber in different areas, including the mountains.
Stabilizing platform enables the helicopter to gain 200 km/h speed even with large and long cargo on external sling providing over 50% fuel saving.
At the initiative of the Rostov-on-Don designers, in 1997 the new version indexed MI-26PK with the additional cab of pilot-operator was created. Such decision significantly increased the machine’s construction and erection works capabilities.
At the summer of 2012, Algeria, the most modern version - MI-26T2 - was demonstrated. Its main features are the outstanding avionics, including navigation system NAVSTAR/GLONASS, digital autopilot, integrated avionics suit, LCD displays and many others.
The MI-26T is capable of performing the special missions, apart from the routine tasks. It was the very helicopter to have been performing the erection works while building the Sochi venues of the Olympic Games in 2014. The MI-26T is used in building of temples and monuments, and evacuation of crashed aircrafts. Being a load capacity champion with unique construction, the MI-26T has a great potential to be used in all climate conditions.
