I know it wasnt designed for it, and it would cost a fortune to put together, but picture a flight of these toting MBT's into battle

The Weir's planned the helicopter's blueprints during their military service.

a flying triangle

You don't rotors on the back to turn. The three rotors can also turn the helicopter like the chinook.

Riou_, you think that it's a fail when it gets shot, but it was not design for a gunship or to go to the battlefield. it was designed to carry materials, vehicles and troops far behind the frontlines.

well john actually we have haven't you heard of the triangle shaped ufo's

It does not have any roters in the back,turning would be difficult.

BELL X-22A and BOEING CH-47. Nothing New under the sky.

This would be great for lifting heavy equipment.

make this Aircrafts angles as 30deg,75deg,75deg then which can manage air and gravity

i really like thes russian ideas they are pretty imaginative

I love how imaginative the Russians can be when it comes to rotary wing aircraft. I would have loved to see this thing built and fly. The US would not need such a beast as much, this helo was designed with the Soviets large amounts of hard to reach no infrastructure areas such as Siberia. No roads, no landing strips, etc. Bearing that in mind it would have been practical for them to use in those areas. Battlefield not so much, and the times when the benefit would outweigh the cost in the US would probably be slim.

Actually, if the rotors are tilted slightly, the torque will cancel itself at. Let's not for get the cierva-weir w.11 air horse. IT was a moderately successful helicopter which operated under the same basic principles--but in the 1950s! Although, it was more than a tad smaller, but the three rotors spun in the same direction. Weirdly, this worked.

This is why I love the Russian imagination. If they had enough capital and money, then I assure you this giant flying triangle would be built.

Nikos, e-mail, 18.08.2008reply

3 rotors? Does not make sense to me... unles 3 pairs of counter-rotating were used. With this litle correction it could be a magnificent crane of very heavy objects.

Wee, 03.07.2008reply

This is really trully amazing, but too unpractical.

omg its like a tripod

Chuck Anderson, e-mail, 18.12.2007reply

This is a very fascinating machine, and it would have been quite a sight flying overhead. If the Mil Mi-32 had gone into full-scale production and operational service, and remained in production for many years (like the Lockheed C-130), I wonder what improvements they would have made in that time. I've always liked Soviet and Russian helicopters, as they have so many interesting types, and they've always pushed the boundries of rotary-winged flight.
