Last December, the Jordanian Air Force has taken delivery of two new Mi-26T2 helicopters.

The Mi-26T2 is a modernized variant of the venerable Mi-26T (Halo) heavy transport helicopter produced in Russia since the early 1980's. The updated rotorcraft has received a glass cockpit with five multifunctional displays, BREO-26 onboard avionics suite, new digital autopilot, and NAVSTAR/GLONASS navigation system. The modernized helicopter’s crew totals three. It can be configured to perform various other operations, including fire-fighting, fuel delivery, construction and installation works.

The Mi-26T2s will complete 26 Squadron's fleet as part of the Sahel Nassab Group.

Also in December, Russian Helicopters holding company (part of Rostec State Corporation) and representatives of the Russian Ministry of Defense started joint state tests of Mi-26T2V heavy-lift military transport helicopter which are to last until the end of 2020.
