In 1987, based on the Mi-8MT was developed a a training simulator for paratroopers, in 1988 a special reconnaissance version for detecting and tracking low-flying targets and cruise missiles. In 1990, based on the Mi-8MA was created a special version to protect economic interests and borders.

Research variants:
Mi-8 was also used for the production of civilian versions - in 1981, two Mi-8T had installed a special apparatus "MAKFAR-11" to perform geophysical measurements. In 1990, 12 Mi-8MTs were converted to flying meteorological sites, and later an ecological laboratory was built on the basis of Mi-8MTV.

Mil Mi-8RF (Мил Ми-8РФ) - version equipped with radiometric apparatus.

In addition to scientific tasks, Mi-8s of various versions were used in production plants and design offices as flying laboratories and test machines for the development and testing of new Mi-14, Mi-24 and Mi-28 helicopters as well as new engines and instrumentation.

In addition to these basic versions (for fertilizer spraying and fire fighting), other versions have also been developed for use in agriculture and forestry. In 1983 and 1990 a special insulated version with a higher volume of fuel for work in arctic conditions based on Mi-8MT and Mi-8MTV was created. Other versions were made to order foreign users based on Mi-8P, Mi-8MT (Mi-17) and Mi-8MTV (Mi-17-1V).
