V-16 helicopter project of side-by-side twin rotor design with two high-power turboshafts, low-rotating turbines and vertical shafts.
V.Miheev "Mil MVZ - 50 years", 1998
Why can't they use jet engines for the twin rotors?

@ lalala77777777: would you be refering to the V-22 Osprey? that's not a 'side-by-side helicopter' thats a tilt-rotor.

Actually the Russian "V" designation is for prototype helicopters, not VTOL aircraft.
its basicly a flying B36 peacemaker
funny how the american side by side chopper also has a V designation...
Do you have any comments concerning this aircraft ?
