    i say need them both.
    chinook to do more tactical jobs like taking troops,artilery etc directly into the battle field and mi-26 to do really "heavy" jobs like moving heavy machinery like bull-dozers,apcs,radars etc.

    ^^^
    From operational and maintenance point of view Mi26 is a pain in the a$$ and expen$ive too. But yeah Mi26 with its tremendous load carrying capacity is an engineering marvel. I think Mi26 might won because it looks like LUH is definitely going to eurocopter so to make every one happy, we might give this project to Russians. Also now Rosoboronexport has set up the shop near delhi so i think the service of russian equipments might improve in India.
