The first sample of IL-112V rolled out on trial taxiing

According to published information, the next stage of testing the first sample of a light turboprop military transport aircraft Il-112В was launched at the Voronezh plant before the start of flight tests. Earlier it was reported that after the first launch of 27 in November of this year, the aircraft was transferred to the flight test station (LIS), where the full range of aerodrome tests will be conducted, the results of which will be decided on the readiness of the aircraft for the first flight of the year. After two or three flights in Voronezh, the plane will be transferred to Zhukovsky to continue flight tests.

Light military transport aircraft Il-112V is created for replacement in the transport aviation An-26 and An-24 aircraft, whose resource will soon be exhausted. The aircraft is intended for transportation of military personnel, military equipment, various types of weapons and other cargoes.

    I once saw a plane in Pulkovo with the inscription VASO on board.
    The first thought was that it was some kind of Armenian or Georgian private airline laughing
    Vaso Airlines type

        "There would be no happiness. But misfortune helped."
        In 2012-13, they wanted to abandon the Il-112 altogether, in favor of the An-140, but in Ukraine the Maidan organized

          Now everything has become clear. Maidan was organized by IL-112 designers to strangle a competitor.
          Banderlog, I give an idea.

    Well, that's great, the light military transport aircraft is almost ready.

    Our country is large, such aircraft will add the efficiency of our army in order to transfer forces and assets from one sector to another.

    We are waiting for a new medium, heavy and heavy long-range military transport aircraft.

      IL-106 carrying capacity will be 80 tons, with an overload - somewhere around 110-120 tons. The country requires us that the IL-106 appear in 2025-2026. The chief designer of PJSC Il, Nikolai Talikov ... Also, Talikov announced the imminent completion of projects for the light transport aircraft Il-112V and the short-range Il-114-300.
      Let's wait and see ... "Klimov" wrote that the engines of the Il-112 and 114 will be unified, Test 112 may be easier from 114 ...

      Now you just need to start the replacement of the An-12.
      Interestingly, will the engines be based on the PD 35 gas generator, or is there already something more economical ?.
      And the 112th, of course ladny handsome, An-140, due to one lack of a ramp, is not suitable for him (so, after all, he also died in the womb!) - we will look at the performance characteristics ...

        IL-276. The first machines will be equipped with PS-90, which are installed on aircraft of the MD-90A and IL-96 modifications. But in the future we plan to switch to PD-14 engines. Are there any plans to install turboprop engines on the IL-276? - On this plane - no. In this case, we get the same An-12. In IL-276, we rely on high-speed characteristics, it is required to ensure aircraft turnover when performing tasks. Chief Designer of PJSC Il Nikolay Talikov

        You shouldn’t be so. An-140T is with a ramp for landing, and it is already ready, and is already flying, and could very well be in a long series with benefits for both of our countries. An always made good enough cars. The fact that the pan on the head of the country's leadership does not allow to think does not mean that the aircraft of An firm have deteriorated sharply. They are designed with dignity. Simply, most likely, these are their last successful projects, because already today there is a personnel shortage there.

      I am a little confused by the ratio of the thickness of the fuselage and the wingspan ... the analogies with Indian Tajas come ....

        Do not be embarrassed, this is one of the main ideas of the project. The Ministry of Defense in TK indicated the dimensions of the cargo compartment of the IL-76. Those. in contrast to the An-140, the 112th is supposed to transport military equipment.
    ODERVIT 29 December 2018 11: 36
    Congratulations and I am sure that the tests will be successfully passed, the aircraft will be in demand not only for the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    December, the most "productive" month for showing the implementation of plans. (IMF, VKS, Strategic Missile Forces, Electronic Warfare, etc.) So it was in the USSR. The main thing is that in a hurry, they do not accept a marriage, which they then worked out for months. And the Il-12 differs from the An-24 and An-26 radically.
    Even the landing gear. Those are tall, heavy, bulky, occupying a large space in the engine compartment, seriously weighing the weight of the aircraft structure. On the IL-12 - the layout is completely different, like the An-12 and all subsequent models, both here and abroad.
    I hope that the IL-12 will completely fill the niche of this class of transport workers. In our vast country, hundreds of them must be riveted. We can do it. yes

    Poor, you are our long-suffering "Ilyushka", if only you knew with what pleasure I was listening to the song of your engines now .... Well, just a little more, well, let's go to the sky ... you live there. And I would like this life to be long and successful

      the glory of God Serdyukov was expelled from the ministers, otherwise it would be an-140, ramp-free, and even fuel efficiency, 20-25 percent worse than that of the il-112, but the an-140, like the an-148, will fly until they work out resource, and good, let the earth rest in peace

    how much money and time was lost on "friendship" with Ukraine, they bought an-140 which could not replace the an-26, an-70, and the Tu-334 could have done at least a dozen if it were not for doing it together with Ukraine, otherwise They took money, but things stood still, but they began to develop an-148. And now we have to catch up
