Defense Ministry received the first upgraded IL-76MD-M

The first serial transport aircraft, Il-76MD-M, was handed over to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation after modernization, said the vice president of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) for transport aviation, General Director of PJSC Il Aleksey Rogozin.

Defense Ministry received the first upgraded IL-76MD-M

At the moment, the first modernized drill machine is located on one of the bases of the military transport aviation of the Russian Air Force.

The aircraft is equipped with a new flight-navigation complex, which meets all the requirements and rules of flights on both Russian and foreign air routes. In addition, it replaced the lighting, airborne transport and household equipment, as well as means of defense and communications.

An optical-electronic sighting system is installed, which allows you to monitor landing sites and works both in the infrared and in the optical range
- added Rogozin.

In the course of modernization, parts were interchanged, interchangeable with the promising Il-76MD-90А military transport aircraft and the Il-78М-90А tanker truck, which are manufactured in Ulyanovsk. The engines of the D-30KP aircraft were modified during the modernization. Thus, the aircraft's service life extended by 15 years, reports TASS

      how much we have already climbed out on the Soviet legacy, have shouted mom do not grieve, now they are modernizing less than they released, although in fairness the Union was twice as large as Russia

    IL-76 like An-124 have the ability to land and take off in a flat field?
    is such an option possible to supply airborne assault by air and the deployment of additional troops? (S-300, S-400 for example)

      Yes, and one and the other can garden on unpaved strips ...

        can tanks, infantry fighting vehicles and self-propelled artillery take on board? in general, a full-fledged transfer of significant ground forces is possible?

          kanesh, almost the entire nomenclature of ground forces with a few exceptions ... and in terms of "significant forces" this already depends on the quantitative indicators of the BTA

            When designing these aircraft, apparently it was not easy to take into account the possibility of working from unpaved airfields, do you have such aircraft in the west? with the opportunity to sit in the field?

                You do not confuse the bottom of a salt lake with a dirt field. If this C17 is planted on our primer, it will no longer take off from there.

          When designing the IL-76, all the airborne equipment and not only were driven through the fuselage layout with the direct participation of Margelov!

          BMP, self-propelled guns - yes. Tanks - only An-124. T-72 without specific preparation (dismantling) does not fit into the IL-76.

    Comrades, and who is in the know. What was the percentage of modernized equipment in the USSR? Or there they often simply introduced a new model into operation.

      Stupid question ... excuse me. The modernization process has never stopped ... while the equipment was in operation ... when the technological leap took place, everything was repeated in terms of modernization ... with new equipment
      Tu-22, 22M, 22M2, 22M3 - the planes are different, but the whole modernization ...
      And production since 1962 ....

        Tu-22 and Tu-22M are completely different planes, not modernized ones .... Even ... M2 and ... M3 are different.

    The chief designer of the IL-76 aircraft, Andrei Yurasov, told journalists about the new defense system installed on the IL-76MD-M. This complex is able to protect the aircraft from all means of defeating a potential enemy. The complex itself includes both active and passive defense elements, including well-known to many heat traps, and some new systems that are now installed on board.

    It is not clear how the D-30KP was finalized, the D-30KP-Z Burlak made of it?
    1. Filxnumx
      Filxnumx 13 March 2018 21: 29
      The Burlak was given to the Chinese to copy, and it was being finished in Rybinsk just from the first series to the second (from D-30KP to D-30KP-2), the production facilities of ODK-Saturn were jammed to the eyeballs as a modernization (they pull all the old rubbish to themselves ) and a repair for the BTA to such an extent that it is problematic for the second year for the long-distance truck with IL-78 to repair the engines on time. We have to get out, negotiate with the BTA command and the UEC and the UAC, but things are moving, not standing still

        So the new D-30 engines are ordered only by the Chinese, the Russian Defense Ministry does not need them, they prefer to repair the old ones.

    Well, yes, with BTA we do not often have news about updates.
    But the planes are very important.
