It is the MI-17 HIP Multi-purpose helicopter.

Or atleast resembles it most, it looks like the helicopter in the top to be an upgraded MI-17.

Deltaboy is right, it's a russian Mi-26(T)

Here's another pic:
www.koorneef.net...

It's used by the UN

"Mi-26(T) is a multipurpose helicopter having no analogues over the world. Only this helicopter is able to carry loads weighting up to 20 tons in cargo cabin or on external sling. For civil and military purposes."

Eh, lol, I was pretty close, they were both Russian made though.

The MI-26 if I remember correctly is the world's largest multi-purpose helicopter, even bigger than the CH-53 Sea King.

After what happened in Afghanistan, I'm sure Russia pays extra-special attention to SAM countermeasures these days...

Yes I do believe the Mi-26, which is what it is, is the worlds largest operational helicopter. I think the largest helicopter ever flown was the MiL V-12 'Homer'.

Also the CH-53 is not the Sea King, the Sea King isn't even that big as its a ship bourne ASW helo, the CH-53 is the Super Stallion.

I was correcting shattered skies, for it was he who wrote 'CH-53 Sea King' as if it was a real helicopter, rather than an amalgalm of the names of two different ones.

First off the helicopter pictured in my avitar is a Sea King an SH-3H to be exact. I spent a few years in the US Navy as a mechanic and crewman on Sea Kings. The CH-53 and MH-53 types are known as the Sea Stallion.

I don't know how you would start to try to defend that Russian monster against SAMs. To be honest something that big faces more of a threat from guns than missiles. Heatseakers have a problem locking on to large helicopters because of the rotorwash diluting the heat signature. We had a dummy Stinger launcher with a live sight and could only get an intermittent lock on our Sea Kings. With that monster I'd just point and shoot.

The Sea King and all versions of it are Sikorsky S-61's with the USAF applying designations in the 'H-3' series (ie SH-3, MH-3 etc)

The CH-53 family (from CH-53A throught to CH-53E) are Sikorsky S-65's, the S-65 is a completely different and much bigger helicopter than the S-61, therefore you will never ever get a 'CH-53 SeaKing'.

Its a bit like Saying 'B-2 Eagle' for example. Two utterly different aircraft.

To be a pest. The Air Force HH-3s and CH-3s were never designated as Sea Kings. Their designation was either Green Giant or Jolly Greens. The changes required by the Air Force basically created a new aircraft. The Air Force version had a ramp in the back which meant that the tail wheel became a nose wheel and the tail boom was narrowed.

Jolly Green





Ugly looking thing isn't it?


Here's a real helo.

You are quite correct of course, but I was just trying to keep it simple for the other fella in relation to which Sikorsky designs we were talking about
