" big, Russian, "Flying Cranes"."

They were actually built in the USA by Sikorsky, who was Russian by origin but very much part of the USA industrial complex

To be precise the S-64 SkyCrane, which in military service became the CH-54 Tarhe

The design has now been sold off and someone else still has them in limited production
