"Ilyushino miracle": what is capable of a new transport IL-112

85 has been celebrated in Russia since the founding of the Ilyushin Design Bureau, the pride of our country's aircraft manufacturing industry. The legendary IL-2 passed through World War II, sowing fear in the ranks of the Nazi invaders. “Humpback” IL-76 have become one of the most popular transport aircraft, and with huge IL-96, so far very few people can compare in reliability.

Today, Ilyushin does not stop there. The design bureau is preparing for mass production of its next "miracle" - the Il-112 light transport aircraft, which should replace the An-26. The new aircraft is almost twice as old as the An.

The first IL-112 fuselages are ready, it remains to wait for the new engine, the TV7-117, to finish testing and the aircraft will go into the series - 10 machines a year. In the anniversary year for KB this will be the best gift.

    Strange, judging by these photos, the engines on the first instance are already mounted.

      then the engines for the first instance are already mounted.

      We need to see what year this photo is. In the first half of 2017, they were in a hurry to launch it on its first flight, even without testing new engines, there was infa that the engines had been brought to the enterprise and already installed, but then common sense prevailed, they were removed and sent for testing ...

    "Ilyushino miracle": what is capable of a new transport IL-112
    - for now, he’s only capable of it - so “blowing bubbles” with the “Rogozin dynasty” ... and another thing that he’s doing just fine is “transferring the date of the first departure, more and more to the right and to the right”. And the first "miracle" will happen when it takes off ...

      that’s the trouble, I heard about this airplane during the union, an article in a book about Antonov’s design bureau, so it was twenty years ago, now there is an 140 family, why we are not comparing with it, we are not trying to master it

        Because Antonov Design Bureau in Ukraine, and Ilyushin Design Bureau in the Russian Federation.

        Nobody needs Ukrainian shit, this topic is closed forever. Ilyushushins 112y will bring, there can be no doubt.

          The fact of the matter is that Ukrainian Ani is not shit, but very decent aircraft made at the modern level, and 10 Il 112 a year is a disgrace

            If about An-140, then we got a problem plane. 10 IL-112V per year - the amount under the capabilities of the Ministry of Defense and the loading of VASO by other projects. There will be more orders - will increase the series.

            grandfather, as you are now stuck, you take care of yourself, remember how many total anans have been released over the past 10 years, excluding Russia, and calm down, there is no An-140 ramp, I never will, and I don’t think it will, but 112 was designed right away in digital format and it will be launched by the team, which an148 brought, despite all the design flaws, the engines are a year behind, bad, only they will be more productive and more economical than the "imported" ones

        There is no MTC based on the An-140, but the aircraft itself has a number of problems. The main one is political.

    IL-112 should come to replace the An-26 family. The point is necessary, if only the aircraft manufacturers did not disappoint. Very acute is the problem of the An-12 format transporter. Both in our VKS and in the global park, such a dimension is the most demanded. The absence of a domestic aircraft of this dimension breathed a second life into the “old man” S-130 and allowed him to put the A-400 “on the wing”. An-70 "horses" almost killed.
    It is regrettable that in a country that is the homeland of the Airborne Forces, there will not be enough transport aircraft to take even one of the airborne airborne into the air. But there are other, no less important, tasks for TA. request

    TV7-117CT is the latest iteration of the TV7-117 gas turbine engine family. Initially, the power plant was developed for light military transport aircraft IL-112В. Later, the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, United Aircraft Building Corporation (UAC) and UEC decided that the regional IL-114-300 aircraft would be equipped with the same engine (at the first stage it will receive a less powerful engine - TV7-117СМ).
    The ground tests of TV7-117CT started in September of 2016. For them, a new stand was put into operation, allowing to check the operation of the power plant assembled with the propeller, nacelle, part of the IL-112В fuselage. Then the general director of the UEC Alexander Artyukhov said that for the test program 16 experienced engines will be built. Bench and flight tests are scheduled for completion at 2019.

      Interesting things are done, Lord! It turns out there are no engines, but what have they done since the 90s for the Il-114, the Chinese have made an engine for their largest seaplane in the world, and ours are only going to try it out!
      It’s just a shame to our corporations, everyones, now they are all kinds, to the manturovs, the supporters and Co.!

        TV7-117S has a maximum power of 2500 E.L.S., TV7-117SM (IL-114) - 2650 E.L.S., and TV7-117ST - 3500 E.L.S.!

        the Chinese for their own, not the world's largest seaplane, just took a licensed AI-20 engine

    “The Russians, as soon as they create something, immediately call it“ the best in the world! ”- Henry Ford. The plane has not yet taken off, and we have dubbed it a “miracle”?!?!

    the miracle is that he was born in less than 15 years, for a liberal economy this is a miracle.
