The Mil Mi-10 (NATO reporting name Harke) was a Soviet military transport helicopter of flying crane configuration, developed in 1962 from the Mi-6. It entered service in 1963.

Also known as "Product 60" by Rostov-upon-Don helicopter facility.[citation needed]

It was built as the short-legged ("Mi-10K") version, and the long-legged ("Mi-10R") version. It is powered by two 5,500 shp (4,100 kW) Soloviev D-25 turboshafts. The Mi-10 uses a closed circuit camera system that scans forward from under the rear fuselage and downward through the sling hatch to watch the payload and landing gear and for touchdown. [1]
