The Mil V-12 was the largest helicopter ever built (37-meter long!). It performed its first flight in 1968, and outperformed all the other helicopters in the world. Thanks to its twin rotor, it could lift up to 44 tons as early as 1969. It never entered service as this prodigious prototype remained at the project stage, and for uncleared reasons, its production was cancelled.
