The Mi-6 is a big, powerful transport helicopter. Getting this large vehicle in the air was no easy task; the Mi-6 has an enormous gearbox, heavier than its engines, and often uses short wings to unload the rotor in cruise. It was not only for a long time the largest helicopter, it was also the fastest.
