Russia and China negotiate the production of heavy helicopters
At the airshow Airshow China 2014, which began its work in Zhuhai today, it is announced that active work is now under way to begin joint design of a heavy helicopter. Negotiations are preliminary.
The heavy helicopter will be based on the Mi-26 concept. Today this unique helicopter has no analogues in the world. It is well developed and may well serve as a basis for creating an even more advanced machine. At the moment, including at the talks in Zhuhai, the future appearance of the car and its characteristics are being discussed. Representatives of the Russian Helicopters holding told reporters that the future heavyweight might be more carrying capacity than the Mi-26, or maybe less. But in any case, the Russian-Chinese helicopter should become a new generation machine in terms of its characteristics.
Final agreements on the start of work on a heavy helicopter may be signed in the near future. But after the completion of the Airshow China 2014.
