      Except different in every way from a design configuration point of view, the Mi-26 has more than twice the MTOW, has double the payload capability, and twice the power. Of the various US/Russian aircraft comparisons I’ve seen, yours has to be one of the stranger ones. The CH-53 would have been a better comparison, although the Mi-26 is still considerably larger.

        The operational cost of all Russian helos is much lower and operating them is much easier than expensive western junk that falls apart under rugged operations. The medium lift Mi-17 in various versions is the AK-47 of the sky and one the best helicopters on the planet and even used by Americunt “special forces” and their stooges aka CIA puppets.

        It’s a comparison in a sense of heavy lifting of equipment/cargo or troops carrier…
        And I never implied US “version” is better in any way…

        • Aphelion

          Thanks for the clarification. However, I did not interpret your comment as meaning the US aircraft is better. The word “version” usually means one thing was derived from another: It is difficult to see how that applies to such different machines even if taken in the most figurative sense.

      In no way, its two different classes with two different design concepts and intented workloads.

    Russian helicopters are rugged, dependable and low cost and even the dumbass Americunt morons use them in Afghanistan and Iraq.
