    Jordan To Get Four Mi-26T Heavy-lift Transport Helicopter This Year

    Jordan will receive the final delivery of four heavy-lifting series helicopters Mi-26T from Russia this year, TASS reports.

    "Contract performance is underway. We are to complete supplies this year. Four helicopters in total are meant," Chief Executive Officer of the Russian Helicopters holding Andrei Boginsky told reporters on Thursday on the sidelines of the Eurasia Airshow.

    Mi-26T helicopters are used for various missions - transportation, evacuation, fire fighting and so on. The helicopter is capable of carrying up to 20 tonnes of cargo inside the body or on the external suspension.

    Jordan's broke. There isn't any point in buying Blackhawks and chinooks and other helis for a job that could be done by one. American-made ones might serve well in combat, but I can't see why Jordan would spend more for something that probably won't see combat.
