Discover the Epic Story of ‘Homer’: Rare Footage of the Soviet Mi-12 Heavy Transport Helicopter

The Mi-12, also known as V-12 in the USSR, was a marvel of Soviet engineering, shrouded in secrecy and designed to surpass any previous helicopter’s lifting capacity. With its fixed wings and two Mi-6 rotors mounted at the ends of outrigger wings, the Mi-12 was one of the largest and most powerful helicopters ever built, capable of carrying up to 120 passengers. Powered by four Soloviev D-25VF turboshaft engines, the helicopter had a unique eight-blade rotor and was nicknamed “Homer” by NATO. Despite its impressive capabilities, only three prototypes were built, and the helicopter never entered production. Today, historical footage of the Mi-12 remains a valuable window into Soviet aviation and engineering history. At our website, we offer rare and exclusive footage of the Mi-12 and other significant moments in aviation history for purchase. [email protected]
