Description: The MIL Mi-38 is a multipurpose helicopter suitable for transportation of cargo and/or passengers, VIP transport with high comfort luxury cabin, search and rescue missions, medical evacuation and geological prospecting. It is being designed for operation in extreme climate from hot tropic (60 Celsius) to artic conditions (-50 Celsius). Mi-38 responds to a conventional helicopter layout featuring a six-bladed main rotor and a tail rotor both leverage the Mi-28 design implemented by MIL. Its airframe also incorporates composites and modular architecture allowing for faster maintenance compared to Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopters. According to MIL, Mi-38 servicing and maintenance time will average less than half the time required on the Mi-8 aircraft.

The Mi-38 medium multipurpose helicopter is being marketed by MIL as the most foreseeable replacement for Mi-8 and Mi-17 helicopters as well as heavier Mi-6s and Mi-10s. Inside its spacious cargo cabin (8.7x2.34x1.82 meters) a single Mi-38 can transport a 5(6)-ton payload or a 7-ton payload using an externally using a hook. The passenger variant offers 30-seat including toilet, buffet and luggage compartment. In the medical evacuation role the Mi-38 provides room for up to 16 stretchers. Mi-38 loading/offloading of payload and/or personnel can be executed quickly through a rear cargo door or a wide right lateral door. The advanced avionics allow a single pilot to operate the aircraft while there is no need for a flight engineer.

The Mi-38-2 is a version special designed to meet the requirements of the Russian Aerospace Forces as replacement for the Mi-8 helicopters. A wide range of variants will be produced on the basis of the Mi-38-2 aircraft such as jamming, medevac, search-and-rescue and assault transport helicopters as well as modification designed to perform tasks for the Arctic Group of Forces. The Russian Ministry of Defense and Russian Helicopters expect to complete the specifications for the new aircraft by 2018 with the first Mi-38-2 helicopter entering into service in 2019.

The Mi-38T is a military transport helicopter derived from the Mi-38 medium-lift commercial aircraft to meet the requirements of the Russian Armed Forces. In August 2017 the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) signed a contract with Russian Helicopters for the first two Mi-38T machines to be delivered before the end of 2019.
