Externally, the IL-76MD-90А is similar to its predecessor. However, in addition to new communication systems and flight-navigation complex, more modern engines are installed on it. Due to this, the flight range and payload increased to 60 tons. Under the contract, the Ministry of Defense of Russia should receive these military transport workers 39.
A promising light transport aircraft of the Il-112В class is also on the way. The engines for it are already being tested on the basis of the IL-76LL flying laboratory.
Civil projects are being developed on Ilyushin. This IL-96-400M is a new generation of wide-body long-haul airliners, and the small IL-114 is designed to serve regional lines.
