The newest tanker Il-78M-90A rolled out for flight tests

55
November, the Aviastar-SP plant, 29, rolled out a new Russian tanker aircraft IL-78М-90А. The air tanker is a modification of the IL-76MD-90А transport aircraft and must eventually replace the IL-78. The newest Russian tanker was rolled out to the flight test station. This was reported on Wednesday on the official page of the United Aircraft Building Corporation on Facebook.


The newest tanker Il-78M-90A rolled out for flight tests


In Aviastar-SP, the first Russian tanker Il-78М-90А was rolled out to the flight test station
- said the company.

The aircraft was created on the basis of the IL-76 MD-90А transport aircraft, the production of which was transferred from Tashkent to Ulyanovsk. The machine has improved flight characteristics, including in terms of payload and flight range.

Earlier, the press service of Aviastar-SP reported that the first new Il-78М-90А tanker was planned to be sent for testing back in the 2016 year.

          Which Ilya? On the IL-96-300 in general, only PS-90 was hung up. And why, "since 2010"? Aeroflot, by 2010, had actually brought the IL-96 to charter. By 96, only the Far East (Petropavlovsk, Khabarovsk) and Delhi were regular for Il-2010, sometimes to replace 330 Watermelons in Bangkok and Seoul. Well, even short flights were in Hurghada-Salzburg-etc. So, by 2010, the PS-90A was already completely cut out from civil aviation. Together with the planes on which he hung.

      And yet, in my opinion, it is a pity that they abandoned the IL-96 as a tanker, instead of the IL-78. First, they would have kept the release of the 96s; secondly, they would make it possible to saturate the aerospace forces with new transport vehicles and, do not forget about the new A-100.

      And so, 96 could take more fuel, fly further, i.e. longer be in the air than the new IL-78M-90A.

          Sarcasm is appreciated!

          But let's have a little pragmatism: the IL-96 400T is a better option for the tanker than the IL-78M. At the same time, it is inferior to watermelons and Boeings in economic indicators in the civil aviation market. But to leave the know-how on the production of such aircraft “archi is necessary and archi is important” (c). Again, in the near future Aviastar will not be able to satisfy the army’s needs for immediately THREE modifications of the new IL-76: transporter, tanker and AWACS aircraft.

        The problem with the IL-96 is the lack of a motor. It was developed under the NK with a thrust of 18 thousand kgf (which can be increased to 20 thousand kgf). "Three Hundred" - a forced shortened modification of the aircraft under the PS-90. It was planned to hang PS engines in A96 version with the Il-1 tanker (I do not remember the letter) with thrust increased to 17,5 thousand kgs. As the operator of this engine (PS-90A), I believe that A1 is bad. First of all, by the fact that it was squeezed dry, thereby reducing the motor resource between removals from the wing to some completely insane terms for the GA - almost 1,5 thousand hours in total. And PS-90A in the version for IL-76, on the contrary, reduced thrust to 14 thousand kgf. That is, its take-off mode is actually the nominal for the PS-90A high-altitude. Of course, this allows you to extend the life of the motor, increase reliability, increase the intervals between removals, and so on. In short, reduce the cost and simplify the operation of the aircraft. And this is an important factor for warriors.

          NK is really a pity, because they have already tested under the wing. 96th had to live, and for a long time. Well, maybe they let it out. And then we need, it turns out, to do the new widebody ... So everyone says that, although I would do and modernize the 96th first.

            I think that you are writing about NK-93. Unfortunately, the project is closed and is not open for 99%. Let's not talk about the bad, but put some hope in the new PD-14 (PD-18) line. I understand that this is at least 3 years before the advent of this motor, but you need to do something and look to the future. On the 96th it could be installed, the first would fly with PS-90

              Yes, there are already virtually no IL-96-300 in the GA! I even doubt that the slipway was preserved at VASO. Dismantled - do not go to a fortuneteller!
              The IL-96 has already been buried by the modern leadership of Russia. Aeroflot was obliged to acquire IL-96-300 from Ilyushin Finance Co. in exchange for very significant customs privileges for the purchase of Airbus aircraft. As a result, a deal was concluded in France (Putin, Chirac, Merkel) as a result of which Airbus should supply 6 billion airplanes for Aeroflot (I don’t remember exactly - euros or dollars). At the same time, Aeroflot was exempted from a significant part of customs payments to the treasury. In exchange, as I already said, the airline was to lease another 6 IL-96 aircraft. As a result, the Russian Federation was supposed to drag Airbus into its sphere of interests (we bought a 5% stake in EADS, which made up the sidekick of GDP — the brother of the fact that Plato was muddied), bought Skanex and has long been working with Airbus in the field of remote sensing. Well, then everything, as always with us. The whole chain had its preferences, received its kickbacks (completely legal, in the form of a fixed percentage for completing a transaction of 6 lard, which is very delivering), the treasury flew past customs duties, and IL-96 Aeroflot did not buy it with the tacit permission of the government, gee. Not a single one)) Well, it all ended with the fact that one vice-premier-errand of our government came to VASO and stated that "IL-96 is a hopeless airliner" and ordered the Voronezh peasants to tie up with the construction of airplanes))

      A completely erroneous analogy. Remotorization of aircraft is a common practice. Firstly, no one has changed the laws of aerodynamics since the inception of the IL-76. Or do you have other information? )) Structural materials and assembly technologies have changed somewhat, but in this case it does not matter, since we are not reassembling the IL-76, we are just upgrading and remotorizing it.

      Will not be. In fact, Vaz did 2101/2 (2103, 2106, 2105/04 and 2107 - options), 2108 (2109 and 21099 options) with 2114/2115 as just updating the 2109 family, the 2110 family, which can be conditionally considered new, Prior, which There is an update to the 2110 family, and Niva. Next went new cars: Kalina, Grant, Largus, Vesta and Iksrey.
      But we love the word newest. And it is imposed in the teeth. It’s like a perfect word. Well, already perfect, you do not need a superlative. In a normal state of affairs, this IL-78M-90A should be considered an upgrade of the IL-78 tanker with remotorization and improvements. Like the MiG-35 - the modernization of the MiG-29.

    I completely agree with your opinion. As they said at the TAD department (the meaning of an oblique slice of the LC AD is that it is oblique) There will be no sense in aviation until amateurs are at the helm. Db Minaviaprom is separate from the Ministry of Transport, because such a huge country, with all the consequences.
