It powered by one TV-2V engine.

Same model, but with contradictory statement by Yefim Gordon and
Dmitriy Komissarov in their book "Mil' Mi-6/-26: Heavy-Lift Helicopters"
(via Google books )

I see no contradiction in there except that the thrust engines were maybe additional small turboprops.

I suppose the thing at the nose is no gun, but either a retracted telescopic refuelling probe or a pitot sensor (the latter would fit the period better).

Thank you my dear Jemiba,

maybe this one was not the early design,as I know it was powered by one engine.

Yes my dear Flateric,

Hesham, once more, and again, and again - READ something BEFORE you post something STATING something.
You are posting pic of compound twin engine VM-6 and saying it was single-engined earlier version. IT WAS NOT.

Darn. Have you read the text from Gordon or not?

DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT CHANGE IN REQUIREMENTS (MAX PAYLOAD INCREASE +50%, SPEED UP TO 400 KM/H) LEAD TO initial project GROWTH IN SIZE, ADDITION_OF_THE_SECOND_ENGINE AND THEN _OPTIONAL_WINGS_AND PROPULSORS_ TO REACH REQUIRED SPEED, MAKING VM-6 AN COMPOUND? DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THERE _WERE_NOT_ SINGLE ENGINE COMPOUND VM-6?
