    It was always curious why the A-100 was based on the IL-76, and not on the IL-96.

      Why not based on the Tu-204? More economical with comparable range

    You understand, the IL-76 is a massive military transport board, and logistics and spare parts are the same as armored cars are riveting now - like dirt, in a word, the equipment should be unified
    And their tasks and classification are different!

      But he was also a transport and command post, and they wanted to make a tanker out of it. With a comparable load, the range in the IL-96-400 version is almost two times greater than that of the 476th. With PD-14 can be further increased. Decent ceiling. Just what you need for an aircraft AWACS. I think they just saved. The 96th would have to be redesigned, and then the finished platform.

    something tells me that this is an attempt to report on the work done, and the work itself will still be long and tedious and not a fact that will live up to expectations

      If they let her finish, then she will justify, do not worry. Yes, and after it it will be possible to modernize and create even more perfect ones, if there is a desire and will of the government, but I think that the current Russia will have enough funds.
