Russian Mi-26T2 helicopter with the number 06823, signed by the Royal Jordanian Air Force

I've always wondered why this helicopter hasn't sold better.  I know the niche for heavy lift is small but nothing can match it's payload and for nations looking to buy cheaper, but robust aircraft this one can't be beat.  If you're a regional power with no designs for expeditionary work then a fleet of these beasts instead of C-130s makes sense to me.
