    Do the Chinese need this when they have MI-26?? In a few months Chinese will have their own reversed engineered version.

    I think its also a signal to India. Russia has to ensure that its arms industry is running. The report also says that it will be aimed at chinese market so Russia need not worry about its market share in this case. When we can request proposals from europeans and americans then this jv should not come as a surprise to us. Each country has to safeguard its interests. would have to see how this development will impat our decision on the heavy lift aircraft requirement.
