Description: The Advanced Heavy Lift�(AHL) is a heavyweight transport helicopter developed jointly between Russian Helicopters of Russia and AVIC of China with the final assembly line to be located in China. The new helicopter primary goal is to meet the Chinese requirements which currently are not met by the Russian-made Mi-26 aircraft. AHL may be heavily influenced by the Mi-26 design and technologies. With a maximum takeoff weight of 38 tons, the AHL will be able to carry 10 tons of cargo internally or up to 15 tons on an external sling. Besides, the new helicopter will operate day/night in hot climates, mountainous terrain and all weather conditions flying transportation missions, medical evacuation, firefighting and much more. The AHL framework agreement between Russia and China was signed on May 8, 2015. China anticipates an internal demand that could exceed 200 helicopters by 2040. The AHL design and anticipations may be mature by the end of 2015.
