The Mil Mi-10 (NATO code name: Harke) was the Soviet Union’s effort to produce an aerial crane helicopter. It was the country’s largest helicopter development to integrate external payloads into the fuselage design. Big helicopters are often equipped with unusual features designed to help them serve their intended purpose. The Mi-10 is fitted with a wide track, four-long-legged landing gear to straddle huge cargo like military tanks. The Mi-10 also has a short-legged version with an identical fuselage to its long-legged variant.
