The Russian Defense Ministry will receive the first serially upgraded Il-76MD-M military transport aircraft by the end of the month. About this in an interview with TASS said the chief designer of PJSC "Il" Nikolai Talikov.


Russian Defense Ministry will receive the first serial IL-76MD-M until the end of January


The army asked us to modernize the IL-76MD aircraft that are in service, and we launched the first serial IL-76MD-M. The customer flew around it in the last days of December last year, the plane is ready for transmission, but they didn’t manage to complete everything on paper. In January, we will hand over the first serial upgraded machine of the Ministry of Defense
- said Talikov.

In 2016, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation concluded the first serial contract for the modernization of Il-76MD military transport aircraft to the level of Il-76MD-M. They will be updated flight navigation equipment, communications equipment, means of defense. Aircraft will receive items "glass cabin", and the designated life will be extended to 40 years.

The IL-76MD modernization program began in 2014.

    Good news, a modernized machine and even with an extended service life. This is the main BTA machine.

      - And I'm sorry that the new transporters are not released! Although I understand that there is not enough money for everything the army needs, it’s a pity anyway!

        I'm sorry

        and I'm sorry .... a half-century-old airplane was upgraded ... well, it’s like computers were mounted on the T-34 or on the LA-7 ... we got stuck in the middle of the 20th century with both legs. I understand, right now, apologists of traditional aviation will fly in ... yes, you can’t change the glider, and he will not have nichrome for 300 years, etc. ... but, we are behind TIME. recall when the Second World War ended, and a man flew into space? and what for half a century ???

          And, excuse me, C5 Galaxy or Hercules is only 0,5 years old? Why reinvent the wheel when it is possible to put on it an “electric motor and a new traction battery” or a new anti-friction chain together with low friction bearings?

            And, excuse me, C5 Galaxy or Hercules is only 0,5 years old?

            What are you talking about now?
            When upgrading the S-5, the S-5M is disassembled "to the cog", put NEW engines, electronics, mechanization and the rest. The S-130J is simply a NEW aircraft (from the old only the name and some parts of the fuselage), even the production line is NEW.
            Things like a “glass” cabin integrate with SCHEDULED repairs.
            IL-76MD-M is a "budget" modification, and it is at least naive to experience pathos in this regard.
            If we do modernization, then on the topic of IL-76MD-90, aircraft with high residual life in the format of planned remotorization. And build new aircraft in the format of the continuation of the theme of the IL-76MF. Then there will be at least some sense.

                And there is. They made a masterpiece at one time ... it is a pity that the continuation did not work out. Still, the S-17, which is “naked” costs $ 300 million, was shut up for the belt. In IL-76 at the time, a unique modernization potential was laid. In Tashkent, they were assembled more than S-5, S-141, S-17 combined.

            Why reinvent the wheel when you can put on it "an electric motor and a new traction battery" or a new chain with an antifriction coating, coupled with low friction bearings?

              It's not about the merits or demerits of Hercules, but that transporters have successfully served for half a century or more. Successful, of course. And of course with upgrades.
              IL-76 - just from the category of very successful. Therefore it serves for a long time and will serve even more.

          The glider is the same, and you’re right here you can hardly imagine something fundamentally new, but new engines with more traction and lower fuel consumption, a new avionics, a change in wing design and a crew of 4 people, not 6.

    As I understand it, the engines remain old - D-30KP-2.
    A navigation system and flat screens with computers are good. The main thing in the repair is to check the recheck, strengthen the glider, control systems, fuel. And navigation ... There would be a head. Yes, landing in bad weather should still be jewelry. Although, when I in the seventies looked at what the navigator had in his barn ... Compared to the An-12, it’s a fairy tale. And my favorite one is Il-28. And the navigator’s cabin is as cozy as a forest hut on a very frosty day ... It’s also a glass cabin, only literally. And the ejection seat seems convenient and the stool at the primitive sight without the bulky electro-mechanical computer sight, like the Tu-16.
    By the way, the IL-76 in the 1970s had an engine resource of 500 hours (before repair or factory maintenance) and they stood with us - half with the engines removed (7650 series ..)

          And the Americans all this time stood side by side in the deserts of Arizona? The fact that the aircraft began to operate from the mid-70s doesn’t mean that these specific aircraft went for five decades. They could be released in the late eighties and in the nineties and early zero for the most part to stand due to lack of fuel.

    As for the "antiquity", I can say that this is a proven and reliable transporter, which copes with its tasks perfectly. New engines would not hurt him. And the fact that most of these cars in 30 years is nothing to worry about, because it is not a fighter, not an interceptor, not a bomber. For the development and construction of a new transporter, it will take him ten years to replace “from scratch”, and this despite the fact that the Soviet (Russian) school of aircraft construction is one of the best in the world. However, it is not a fact that he will be better. And all this in the conditions of a budget deficit, when our Western "benefactors" are trying to strangle Russia. As far as I know, in terms of modernization, the start of the program is an order of the Ministry of Defense, followed by the development of modernization plans and technical specifications, design, examination, design, budget planning, when the design documentation is ready, and then the modernization itself. Three years for such modernization is quite an ordinary term.

    Novozhilov and Ilyushin created a masterpiece of engineering!
    I think now, Novozhilov’s hatch would not have crawled through.
    It will be in demand for another 30 years and naturally it is necessary to modernize it.
    There are no replacements for him in the near future.
