Hey, ever seen the russian Mi-26?

Yes, having worked on heavy lift helicopters I am familiar with the competition.  The MI-26 is an amazing aircraft.  

When the Super Stallion was designed one of the key engineering requirements was to be able to lift itself.  This was based on a mission requirement to recover downed aircraft.  Because of that Sikorsky had to keep the weight down while increasing lift capablilities.  

The Super Stallion can also aerial refuel, which greatly extends its operating range.

Uh, if you can't tell I am kinda biased towards my sweetheart.
