PJSC "Il": the Ministry of Defense will receive eight IL-76MD-90A in two years

PJSC Il will deliver to the Russian Ministry of Defense this year and next eight eight new military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A with an increased flight range, said the vice president of the United Aircraft Corporation for Transport aviation, general director of the aviation complex "Ilyushina" Alexei Rogozin.

PJSC "Il": the Ministry of Defense will receive eight IL-76MD-90A in two years

This year we expect to transfer three sides to the Ministry of Defense, next five more
- He said, adding that the manufacture of aircraft is carried out in the framework of the contract for 39 such machines.

IL-76MD-90A is significantly different from IL-76MD. In fact, this is another plane. He has a lot of new: engines, wing, avionics. The car is made from scratch
- Rogozin explained.

Instead of the old D-30KP-2 engines, the Il-76MD-90А uses more powerful, economical and low-noise PS-90А-76, which made it possible to significantly increase the maximum flight range. The aircraft uses the latest digital flight navigation equipment, and the navigator’s workplace is equipped with a multifunctional indicator.

Aircraft production was established in Ulyanovsk at Aviastar-SP, where, after upgrading the production base, it will be possible to manufacture up to X-NUMX Il-18MD-76A aircraft per year.

    The news is good, but better when it is achieved.
    up to 18 Il-76MD-90A aircraft per year.

    But with a contract of 39 pieces no one will rush.

      The contract can and should be increased. And it would be nice to adapt these machines for civilian needs.

        To increase it, need is necessary, and if it is not there, then why?

          Do you even understand what is written in the subject?
          And it is written literally: "The production of aircraft was established in Ulyanovsk at Aviastar-SP, where after upgrading the production base it will be possible to produce up to 18 Il-76MD-90A aircraft per year."
          Where was the production before? In Tashkent. And you have everything so easily respected.

            Do not amuse yourself with the thought that your eyes have opened ... Everyone has been aware of Tashkent for a long time. You look at the initial plans for Ulyanovsk and then look at the calendar. For the last time, shifts to the right for a couple of years have become the norm and this is not normal. But most likely this is not the fault of production, but the reason is the excessive populism of various officials, in short, even those who are astrologers ...

        Civil needs? 4 engine? Immediately to the morgue, after 747 Cargo, which had already died from this, neither subsidies nor lobbying factor from Boeing helped.

          Go to the morgue ...

          hi To the morgue? And then what? On the wings of hope and in a good way?
          8 boards for two, of course, very few. Well, if there is a "debriefing" and work on bugs. I still have hope that the project on the basis of IL-96 will be revived as a refueling tank, otherwise the 76th will not be enough for a transport tanker, a refueling tank (IL-78) and a new AWACS (A-100)!

        there is a need.
        about a year and a half ago, we discussed - the purchase of Boeings for transport aviation (not MO).
        I then wrote: "we pay compensation for the Crimea"

      But because of the old cabin, it’s still archaic.
