SUPER POWERFUL Mi 10 HEAVY LIFT Helicopter!
Russia military aircraft helicopter The Mil Mi-10 ”NATO reporting name Harke”, given the product number izdeliye 60, was a Soviet military transport helicopter of flying crane configuration, developed from the Mi-6, entering service in 1963.
The advent of the Mi-6 gave the Soviet Union the very useful ability to move and place large, bulky or heavy loads with precision. Limitations of the Mi-6 in the flying crane role included a weight to payload ratio and the inability of the crew to easily see the load and its intended final position. A Council of Ministers directive of 20 February 1958 tasked OKB-329 (OKB Mil) with the development of a dedicated flying crane helicopter for carrying bulky loads unable to be carried in the hold of a Mi-6.
