    The air tanker is a modification of the Il-76MD-90A transport aircraft and should eventually completely replace the Il-78.
    The need is long overdue. But now it’s necessary not only to replace the IL-78, but to organize at least several regiments. For one country such as the Russian Federation, and such aviation alone - the only regiment in Diaghilevo is not even funny.
