Mil Mi-6 "Hook"


 

To continue the Mi-6 development please remember that the designation Mi-6M was also used for a proposal for a modified heavy-lift aircraft which led to the more powerful Mi-26 "Halo". There was also a flying crane development of the Mi-6 series known as the Mi-10 "Harke". So here is the list of Mi-10s:

V-10 - First prototype converted from standard Mi-6.

Mi-10 - Designation for second prototype and standard model.

Mi-10R ("Harke-A") - Record-setting helicopter, 1965.

Mi-10RVK - Missile carrier.

Mi-10P / Mi-10PP - Electronic countermeasures helicopter, 1970.

Mi-10UPL - Universal field laboratory carrier, 1966.

Mi-10K ("Harke-B") - Modified Mi-10 with shorter landing gear and slender tail rotor support structure.

Next is the V-12 "Homer" helicopter. Before it was a twin-rotor aircraft Mil proposed several different variations as major upgrades to the Mi-6 class helicopter. Three of the concepts were tandem-rotor helicopters with two twin-turbine engines and the third had fixed wings much like on the standard Mi-6. Two more were proposed and each was a basic Mi-6 upgrade with single rotor. One had two high-power turbine engines and the other had four. Instead of these Mil went for the twin side-by-side rotor configuration. Here is a list of this developments:

V-12 - First prototype

Mi-12 - Second prototype and standard model.

Mi-12M - Unbuilt model with two D-30V high-power turboshafts and six-blade rotors.

V-16 - Unbuilt variant for military use with two high-power turboshafts.

Next is the Mi-20 but it was not produced and so there were no variants. This unbuilt helicopter is described in detail here: http://stingraysrotorforum.activeboard.com/t39472956/mil-helicopters/?page=2

and at Stingray's site: http://sites.google.com/site/stingrayslistofrotorcraft/mil-mi-20

Now we come to the V-22 which was a proposal for a larger troop-carrying variant of the Mi-2 series. This unbuilt project was later used in the study of the Flying Infantry Fighting Vehicle program that led to the Mi-24 "Hind".

if at first it fails, try again and you might get 21 tonnes of flying tank. :)

If this is regarding the development of the V-12 program I must agree. I would much like to see how far it would have gone but Mil obviously had sights on the up-engined Mi-26.

Next is the Mi-28 "Havoc", a planned replacement to the Mi-24 series. The first three proposals were much different from what we see now. The first two are basic modifications to the earlier Mi-24D (or V?) fuselage with stronger engines and modified rotor systems. The main rotor and tail rotor of the first one had five blades while the second had a main rotor of six blades. One mockup of this type was built. The third proposal is much different with a twin side-by-side rotor layout and a pusher propeller. A mockup of this layout was also built. Instead Mil went for a design that much resembled and competed with American designs such as the AH-64 Apache. Here is the list of variants of the initial Mi-28 series:

Mi-28 - First two prototypes.

Mi-28A - Basic production model.

Mi-28N/MMW "Havoc" / "Night Hunter" (Russian: Ночной охотник) - All-weather day-and-night combat helicopter.

Also note naval amphibious versions of Mi-28N were proposed. 

Mi-28D - Simplified daylight operation version of Mi-28N without mast-mounted radar.

Mi-28NAe/NEh - Export version offered to North Korea.

Mi-28L - Proposed export version for Iraq.

Mi-40 (or V-40) - Proposed armed transport version.

Mi-58 - Proposed transport version of Mi-8/17 payload capacity.

The Mi-30 was a program that dates back to 1972 as a successor to the Mi-8/17 series with 19 passengers or 2 tons of cargo. In the 1980s the design became an aparent tilt-rotor aircraft with a larger transport capacity. In 1991 three different versions were proposed. Here is the list:

Mi-30S - First proposal with a 3.2t / 20-passenger payload.

Mi-30D - Second proposal with a 2.5t / 11-passenger payload.

Mi-30L - Third proposal with a 0.95t / 7-passenger payload.

The Mi-32 was a project for a massive tri-rotor flying crane with a triangular fuselage and six turbine engines. It was to have a max lift capacity of 140 tons.

Next is the Mi-34 "Hermit" (Izdelie 300) which was originally to be a training helicopter to replace the earlier Mi-1 series but was widely developed to a basic two/four-seat transport and sport helicopter competing against the Polish PZL-Swidnik SW-4. Here is a list of variants:

Mi-34 / Mi-34S - Basic model.

Note that until 1999 all marketing literature for this version used the hybrid Roman/Cyrillic 'Mi-34C' to indicate certified status. 

Mi-34S2 "Sapsan" - Planned turbine version of Mi-34S.

Mi-34L - Projected version with an upgraded piston engine.

Mi-34P -  Mi-34S equipped for police duties.

Mi-34A - Unbuilt luxury transport model.

Mi-34M1/M2: Projected twin-turbine six-passenger versions.

Mi-34UT - Dual control trainer which lost to the Kazan Ansat.

Mi-234 / Mi-34VAZ - Unbuilt version with VAZ rotary engine. Please note Mi-34V is the prototype designation.

Mi-34BP - Unmanned version.

Mi-44 - Proposed development based on Aerospatiale AS.350 "Ecureuil" standards with upgraded powerplant.

The Mi-36 was proposed in the early 1980's as a light multipurpose helicopter as a successor to the Mi-2 due to it's limited military use. Work on this project was shifted to the Mi-40 program.

The Mi-38 is a joint proposal with Mil and Eurocopter (as Euromil) for a successor to the Mi-17 with larger payload capacity. There are no specific variants yet but civil and military versions are planned.

Next is the Mi-42 which was a proposal for an armed transport helicopter with the NOTAR configuration. It was cancelled when the Soviet Union collapsed.
