Description: The Mi-26T2 is a modernized ultra-heavy version of the Mi-26 helicopter launched in 2010. The newest variant features modern avionics suite fully compliant with international standards, glass cockpit, new D-136-2 engines and other equipment. The helicopter is fitted with a modern BREO-26 avionics suite designed by Ramenskoye Design Company. The glass cockpit of the Mi-26T2 is equipped with five multi-functional LCDs that can display a colored image of external load, a new digital autopilot and a new navigation system supporting NAVSTAR/GLONASS. The new avionics and equipment have brought down the crew to only two from five in existing versions of the Mi-26 aircraft. A third crew member is necessary to work with the external sling load. As of August 2011, the Mi-26T2 was undergoing test flights.

The Mi-26T2 helicopter is also fitted with an additional Tranzas TSL-1600 light to visually control external sling load at night. It is capable both of standard and IR lighting to be used in combination with night vision goggles. The Mi-26T2 is fitted with a new BREO-26 avionics suite with five multi-functional LCD displays, as well as new digital autopilot with satellite navigation support. The helicopter also features modernised D-136-2 turboshaft engines with FADEC (full authority digital engine control) which can boost output by 250 hp during flight when at full throttle. The Mi-26T2 can fly missions anywhere in the world, and can significantly enhance the battle readiness of the Russian Armed Forces. The Mi-26T2V is standard for the Russian Air Force and will be introduced in 2018-2020.
