Looks like a mixture of an Mi-2 and a UH1, interesting concept but looks to small and cramped! The engine design looks a bit odd though.

The Mi-24 and Mi-6 + Mi-8 would already fill this role.

Here is the English translation of the Russian page:

Shaped in the fine-tuning W-2 deficiencies have forced designers OKB proceed with drafting its modernization construction immediately after the first prototypes. Already in 1964, in the assembling factory shop 329 were constructed mock-ups of two W-2 modifications designed to transport 10 passengers: MI-3 - with increased cross-section of fuselage and rear cargo doors and cockpit fuel tanks made out in the form of small wings consoles who served as the pillars for mounting chassis and V-20 - with elongated by inserting additional fuselage sections. Unfortunately, the calculations showed that engine power GTD-350 is not sufficient to achieve these high-performance machines and technical indicators. Therefore, the OKB ML Mil begun to consider options for the replacement of CCD-350 with more advanced gas turbine engines GTD-550, TBG-10, TBG-3, Continental T65 and Turbomeca "Astazou-14.

Project W-20 engine with a capacity of 10A GTD-940 kW interested in the military. On this basis, in 1965, was a project MI-22 with a take-off weight of 4300 kg, intended for the carriage of motor compartment. He, unlike Mi-2, had improved aerodynamics fuselage, has been fitted with a load chetyrehlopastnym propeller, polozkovym chassis and the wide side sliding doors. Brought to the stage of research models Mi-22 formulation was discontinued in the early 70's in connection with the establishment of Mi-24, which, as expected, and will be able to perform the functions for infantry carrier flying.

They are jumping to make this scene better looking. Like always, soviets were making their answers for American designs. But in many exmples, they were making their own, better, or worse machines. is this!!!!!, e-mail, 07.08.2007reply
