The next serial IL-76MD-90A after painting was submitted for testing.

In Ulyanovsk, the painting of the next serial military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A for the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation was completed, the aircraft was handed over for testing. This was reported by the press service of Rostec.

According to the report, work on painting the aircraft was carried out at a specialized enterprise of Spectrum Avia. In painting, domestic materials were used to provide the aircraft with protective properties, high weather resistance, strength and elasticity.



After painting, the aircraft was transferred to the flight test station, where it will pass the necessary ground and flight tests. After the completion of the flight program, the IL-76MD-90A will go into service with the military transport aviation regiment aviationstationed in Ulyanovsk.

Recall that last year Aviastar-SP transferred three military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A out of five planned for delivery to the BTA of the Airborne Forces of the Russian Federation, the delivery of two military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A was postponed until 2020.

Thus, this year Ilyushin will have to hand over to the Ministry of Defense two last year’s airplanes, plus another six IL-76MD-90A, scheduled for transfer this year.

In total, the Russian military department plans to purchase more than 2030 IL-100MD-76A and promising IL-90MD-78A tankers created on their basis by 90.

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.

    What deserves admiration is the Soviet design school.
    How many do not upgrade such products, it seems time does not take them.

      If in a few years we see the news that the Il-276 and the heavy transport "Elephant" have taken off, tested and are preparing for serial production, then we can say that the Russian Aviation Design School of Transport Aviation has appeared.

    Why didn’t the IL-96-400t go into production?
    In my opinion, this type is at least as good as the IL-76md, but as a maximum it is better.
    More carrying capacity, passenger capacity, flight radius. From it a good tanker tanker could turn out for the VKS.

      Refuellers ate the last crisis, because in the need to reduce military spending, the Ministry of Defense had to redistribute money and refuellers were expensive, they were deleted on the basis of piece 96.

      MO, unlike other MOs, still considers pallets to be an excessive bourgeoisie; their volume of transport is still small. Helicopter, Shell, S-400, or which BMP in IL-96 can not be crammed even if you make a ramp (which will already turn the plane into a new one in fact with an astronomical budget).

        IL-96 with a ramp this will be IL-106.

      Why didn’t the IL-96-400t go into production?

      Because most of the cargo of BTA is loaded not in containers as on the 96th, but on a ramp rolls / throws / drives in. Ramp + two built-in cranes, greatly simplify loading.

      Before the series, you still need to build it, conduct tests, organize this very mass production, which will take many years. And we need airplanes today.

    And rightly left the name, IL-76, succession, and respect for those who created it. And now it’s a bad tradition, they will change a couple of devices, and they’ll come up with a new name. hi

    Tell me who is in the topic. The color of the aircraft in the photo is civilian. And transferred to the videoconferencing. Confusion?

    Does the modernization include the installation of a toilet (latrine, toilet)?
    Or is it not a complete upgrade, just added a dry closet (ottoman with a hole and a bucket)?

    “The painting of the aircraft was carried out at a specialized enterprise AO Spectr-Avia” - in the good old days, aircraft painting was carried out in a separate workshop of the enterprise. And here we have ... a cut in its full glory, and fools journalists or the press service of the enterprise do not even understand what they are writing. I understand that they have always stolen in the future, they will also steal, but they emphasize this ...

      Soviet industry was built on the patterns of US industry 30khgodov. Since then, the West has gone further in the principles of the division of labor. Specialized enterprises for a separate operation are just right in this context.

        The division of labor is absolutely nothing to do with, especially since we are talking about such a specific task as painting an airplane. According to your logic, each workshop can be declared a separate enterprise with its own management, accounting, warehouse, etc. In practice, this will mean a sharp increase in managing personnel, with all that it implies, and another, very important factor - each such mini-enterprise will do only that what is beneficial to him, and it is not at all necessary, in this particular case, to paint the planes. What if it turns out to be more profitable for him to paint cars? fellow Where I worked at zero (by the way, also the aviation industry), they got into it completely, not quite like that, but very close, my native orders went sideways.

          I am talking about the principles of the division of labor. It is reasonable to have paint production for the entire aviation industry from this point.

            I correctly understood that you are proposing to create a specialized enterprise for painting aircraft and drive painting aircraft from all over Russia there?

              As far as I know, such an enterprise is in Ulyanovsk. Not for all cases this is optimal for a number of parameters, but nonetheless.

                The existence of such an enterprise does not mean at all the feasibility of its existence (sorry for the tautology). In the USSR, there were just a lot of highly specialized enterprises in the aviation industry, there were even heads (I don’t remember their numbers), and I have been to such enterprises. Highly specialized production equipment was produced there, there were aggregate plants and design bureaus. As for the paint shop specifically, this is a regular hangar with equipment in the form of spray guns. What is so highly specialized, for the sake of what to drive planes across the country half way back and forth?

                  You can find a video on how to paint airplanes on Airbus. These are not bulletiners only, but specialized robots with computer control.

                    And what is the fundamental difference? Does the robot spray paint with a non-spray gun? And the second - it’s one thing to operate the robot with a series of 200 cars a year, another thing - five. As far as I know, the final assembly of the Airbases is carried out only in Toulouse (although I may be wrong) and the question is whether there are driven to paint planes from all over Europe? I sincerely doubt it. Thirdly, not everything that is used in the West is acceptable in Russia. Their crazy (in the good sense of the word) cooperation is often not acceptable with us. Although European cooperation is sometimes caused not by economic efficiency, but by the financial impossibility of overpowering production in one country. There are many nuances, there are economic, political, and military.

                      As long as we have a crush that we have a special way, the right ideas for the division of labor, and not for the full cycle at each enterprise, will pass by and increase our backlog.
