Helicopter Museum

Posted on July 27, 2013 by team


V-12 is the heaviest helicopter with the highest carrying capacity in the world. It was built in 1967 at the Moscow Helicopter Factory. In 1969 it set the world record of carrying capacity - 40 tons.

V-12 was being developed as a heavy transport helicopter with carrying capacity exceeding thirty tons for transportation of intercontinental ballistic missile components for strategic rocket forces whose position areas were at places without paved roads.

This V-12 turned into a museum which is not so bad compared to destinies of many other great vehicles of the Soviet epoch.
