The Ministry of Defense received the third serial IL-76MD-90A this year




As follows from the message, the specialists of Aviastar-SP JSC handed over to the Russian Ministry of Defense this year’s third-ever latest military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A, manufactured at the enterprise. The document on the transfer of the aircraft into operation was signed by Vasily Dontsov, Managing Director of Aviastar-SP JSC, Vladimir Semenov, Managing Director of OAK-TS JSC, and Vadim Dyrdin, commander of the 235 Aviation Regiment.

This is the sixth aircraft of this modification, transferred by Aviastar-SP JSC to the military transport aviation, and the third according to the 2019 production program of the year. By the end of the year, the plant plans to complete the construction of at least two more IL-76МД-90А

- the press service quotes a statement by Vasily Dontsov.

As previously reported, this year the Ulyanovsk aircraft manufacturers handed over to the Ministry of Defense two serial IL-76MD-90A after a four-year break. The press service of Ilyushin noted that in total in 2019, it is planned to transfer five new military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A to the Ministry of Defense.

In total, the Russian military department plans to purchase, before 2030, over 100 aircraft data, as well as promising Il-78MD-90A tankers created on their basis.

The heavy military transport IL-76MD-90A is a profound modernization of the IL-76MD aircraft. The new IL-76MD-90A, unlike the drill IL-76MD, is equipped with PS-90A-76 engines with a thrust of up to 14,5 tons instead of the "standard" D-30KP2 with a thrust of up to 12 tons. The aircraft received a new wing and a “glass” cockpit: the gauges were replaced by instruments with LCD displays. At IL-76MD-90A, the carrying capacity increased to 60 tons and the range of delivery of troops and cargo - up to 5000 km.

    Pretty boy!! Interestingly, such are offered for export, it would be good to enter the international market with such, there would be good revenues to the defense industry, and there, you see, the delivery time for these aircraft would shift to the left forever.

      Wrong. Supply military products for export - a forced measure and it would be good if it weren’t exported at all. Unless only to allies.

            However, the "owner" produced fifty C-17s, and closed the line - it sells poorly.
            In Ulyanovsk, 3 more An-124s are standing, unfinished.

                They need other motors. D-18 is already creepy antiques. This is a Rolls-Royce fantasy from the 70s, something more modern is needed. It remains to wait from Perm for the 35th motor.

      Interestingly, this updated IL-76MD-90A will be able to land on the steppe just as easily as its senior Soviet comrade yesterday? Or electronics with LCDs, with their programs and sensors, would be against it? I think that it should and can. But I wonder if this whole high-tech cabin limits it to this.

      No one brags, but only says that the IL-76MD-90A is built in series and on a conveyor.

      Russia needs at least a couple of thousand such transporters


      One Il-76MD-90A can transfer 128 paratroopers, 2000 aircraft will carry 256 paratroopers AT ONCE.

      We have so much in the Airborne Forces? Do we really need so many planes? For what? To just stand and rot? Or you will drive them empty in Russia, so that pilots do not lose their experience and flight training.

      Another point is that the IL-76MD-90A alone costs 5 billion rubles, 10 aircraft are 50 billion rubles, 100 aircraft are 500 billion rubles.

      Not a small day, 100 IL-76MD-90A aircraft cost almost eight new aircraft carriers with nuclear power plants like the United States.

      how many, if not secret, do tankers?

      Here is the thing:
      Unlike the IL-78M, the possibility of using the IL-78M-90A as a military transport aircraft has been realized: re-equipment (removal of the fuselage tanks and related equipment) does not require a large amount of work and is carried out directly in the conditions of the airfield.

      Thus, the quantity can be "floating", depending on the need. That is, in fact, we have a tanker who can become a transport worker and vice versa. As for the production capacities, then:
      Serial production of the IL-78M-90A will be carried out on a new production line for the final assembly of the IL-76MD-90A aircraft and their modifications, which is currently being mounted at the Ulyanovsk Aviastar-SP JSC. The estimated capacity of the new line is up to 12 IL-76MD-90A and IL-78M-90A aircraft per year.

        To use flexi-cortainers for fuel, I think it is possible, but it is also necessary, pumps, special hoses, control systems for all this economy. Is all this possible to install at the airfield?

          Either that, or it will be provided for in the basic configuration - production is one thing. This is so, as a version. In general, an interesting question. Yes
