AVIC Advanced Heavy Lifter(AHL) or AC332 is a heavy transport helicopter with a max takeoff weight of roughly 40 tons, using Ukraine engines. It's a joint program between China and Russia. China is responsible for the helicopter's design and production while Russia will be acting as technical partner according to Anatoly Serdyukov. The 40-ton class heavy helicopter is expected to be delivered by 2032. A major agreement expected to be signed by 2020 is almost certain(delayed from 2019 due to Covid-19). So let me start this thread.
