“We are now at the final stage of getting the O1 designation for the helicopter’s baseline configuration and there are a few flights remaining to wrap up Mi-26T2V flight tests. We expect to perform these flights by the end of the year and get the O1 code. We have already delivered the first batches of the Mi-26T2V helicopter to the Russian troops,” he said.

The upgraded Mi-26T2V helicopter performed its debut flight in August 2018. Russian Deputy Defense Minister Alexey Krivoruchko said in March 2019 that the ministry would buy 10 helicopters.

The Mi-26T2V is a heavy large-fuselage military transport helicopter with a lifting capacity of 20 tons. The rotorcraft is outfitted with an integrated NPK90-2V avionics suite that provides for its operation day and night to fly in an automatic control mode, reach a preset point and perform approach maneuvers. The onboard defense protects Mi-22T2V from air defense fire. The upgraded helicopter has a crew of five.
