I never heard of it, unless you are referring to the Mi-8MTV series, otherwise re-designated to Mi-17 standards.
How about these found at flickr? They could be wrong, but they were labeled Mi-8MVT-1 and might be what he is talking about. They are all I can find with this designation.

Sounds like a misstype of the MTV-1. It is known to have it's own sub-series of designations; MTV-1, MTV-2, MTV-3, and so on. I get no results for an aircraft with the designation Mi-8MVT.
tht may be it, but there are no good pictures of the nose so ime not sure
Are you sure it was a cannon, not a nose sensor radome?

Mi-8T at Kubinka
-- Edited by Air_Gopher on Monday 18th of April 2011 01:58:21 AM
Mi-8 at Klokovo airfield, Tula region, base of 490th Separate helicopter regiment
I thing I don't understand very well your classification mode !
I want to put Mil V 8 photos on the site : Is it here or not
It not, where I may go ?
So, here the Mil V8 with only one Soloviev turbine
Here are a few from an old polish magazine.
Great scans, Brummbaer.
I have some photos of Mi-8s stored at Kubinka in 2007.
I did wonder what one of the versions was but looks like an MTPB going by something I found in this excellent forum.
Having said that, looking forward of the serial, it looks like there is a Syrian roundel so it is possibly an export version - 17PP or PSh.
Is there anyone who has a list of the 26 or so Mi8s in this compound please?
Looking on satellite images, it appears the Mi8s have gone from this compound now and been replaced by old transport types.
Fixed broken links and attached hotlinked pics.

There is no such thing. Maybe what you saw is the Mi-6 because Mi-8 could never carry a vehicle inside? MVT is an obvious mistake of MTV (Mi-17 series)
The nice thing about egotists is that they don't talk about other people.======================================================Count Hermann Keyserling once said truly that the greatest American superstition was the belief in facts.
