V-12 Has Civil, Military Missions
Paris-Soviet Mil V-12 heavy lift helicopter with 88,000-lb. maximum payload, which made its western debut last month at the Paris air show, will play a key role in Soviet civil development plans as well as military missions. Powered by four Soloviev D-25VF turbine engines rated at 6,500 shp. each, the V-12 is more than three times the size of the proposed U.S. military heavy lift helicopter.
