This answer has a photo of a Mil Mi-26 that I felt in love with, so I looked in Wikipedia and learned it's the largest production helicopter, second only to Mil V-12 that flew as a prototype.

In turn, Wikipedia's V-12 article gave a link to the exact position where one of the two V-12 produced is placed, so I opened Google Maps and I had a satellite photo of the V-12!

So far so good, but when I zoomed out a little I saw many other helicopters parked around, all clearly helicopters except a cigar shaped beast, with winglets apparently too small for an airplane, in the upper right corner of the screen dump below, marked with an arrow... Remarkably I cannot see the shadows of the blades on the ground.

Could you please identify that object?
