The Mi-26T2 is an upgraded variant of the Mi-26T transport heavylifter. It is fitted out with the BREO-26 avionics suite and ‘glass’ cockpit with multifunction displays. The aircraft carries a digital autopilot and a sophisticated navigation suite compatible with the NAVSTAR/GLONASS positioning systems. The introduction of the BREO-26 has allowed the reduction of the crew from five to two. The full-scale production of the Mi-26T2 began in May 2015.

As was reported in the press, Russian Helicopters has landed several orders for the Mi-26T2. In particular, it was reported in February 2015 that Rostvertol, a Russian Helicopters subsidiary, had started the production of six aircraft of the type for the Algerian Air Force.
