New Russian "Doomsday aircraft" will be built on the basis of Il-96-400M

The Russian strategic command posts (VKP), also called "Doomsday aircraft", are planned to be transferred from the Il-80 to the Il-96-400M. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source in the aircraft industry.


It is planned to replace it with the Il-96-400M aircraft. This will significantly increase the time of combat duty of the air command post in the air and increase the coverage area of ​​command and control.

- the agency leads the words of the source.

The second-generation air command post based on the Il-80 was created on the basis of the Il-86 airliner. VKP are part of the system of air control posts of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and are designed to work in conditions of failure of ground control posts, nodes and communication lines, a rapidly changing operational situation, as well as in the case of the enemy using nuclear weapons. It is for this reason that planes of this type are called “Doomsday planes”. There are four cars in total in Russia.

In 2019, it was reported that the second-generation air command posts (VKP) of strategic control based on the Il-80 and Il-82 would be modernized, the ROC on this topic was completed in the spring of 2019. At the same time, Deputy Defense Minister Alexei Krivoruchko said that the Aerospace Forces intend to receive modernized VKP of the second generation.

Work on the third-generation air command post was announced back in 2015 at the MAKS-2015 air show. The aircraft is being developed on the basis of the improved Il-96-400, the work is being carried out by the Nizhny Novgorod research and production enterprise "Polet", which developed the second-generation VKP. At what stage the work on the third-generation VKP is currently underway is not reported.

Note that today only the United States and Russia are armed with "Doomsday planes".

    It is quite logical, not on the basis of Boeing, to make them? Otherwise, when necessary, the Americans will do everything so that they do not budge.

    What difference does it make where the order for the end of the world will come from?
    And so, just replacing old equipment with a new one.

            You are mistaken, their fleet is flying to conquer us from the constellation Perseus. Or are they two different fleets?

      Will be if you agree to pay more for tickets.

      The Il-96-400M aircraft under development will be more expensive than some Airbus and Boeing

      Price 8,5 billion rubles. ($ 131 million) already exceeds the real (approximately half of the catalog) price of some of the latest Airbus and Boeing models. For example, Airbus 330-200 (approximately $ 120 million, capacity - 247 people in a two-class layout and 406 in a single-class layout), Airbus 330-800 neo ($ 130 million, 257 and 406) and Airbus 330-300 ($ 132 million, 277 and 440). In the Boeing lineup, the less spacious Dreamliner model is cheaper - 787-8 (242 people in a two-class layout).


      And one more bonus - 4 engines of the generation before last, which a priori make the plane economically unprofitable even for Watermelon, who buried not only the A350, but also the A380. Moreover, on the A350 there was an option of overhauling with new engines.

    Il 86 was an excellent plane, I had to fly on it. I think the next generation will be even better.

      Great plane. The safest in the USSR. I flew on it in 1989-90m above the roof. And there was no need to hand luggage, it is convenient laughing

    In 1996, board number 1 for Yeltsin - Il-96-300, the re-equipment of its cabin was carried out in Switzerland! The Soviet aviation industry was destroyed, but the Russian one was not created. So we fly now, on anything. It's good that the "doomsday plane", we can still blind with our own hands, from what was.

    For donavi49.
    Where do you get information on prices? About a year ago on the site
    Aeroflot saw different numbers. It said that the A330 was purchased
    at a price of 229 million apiece. If my memory serves me correctly, in euros,
    not in dollars. In general, western aircraft are always more expensive
    Soviet / Russian. There are more appetites and cheats. And salaries
    all workers in the aviation industry are higher than Russian ones. All workers
    and not just managers!

    A wonderful plane. In my lifetime, I would have seen when they will still massively build a civilian version. But it looks like you'll have to live forever

    Considering how "quickly" we develop / build / modernize special aviation aircraft (electronic warfare, reconnaissance, AWACS), it becomes sad for the future of promising VKP ... No matter how the shameful story of the endless development of the A-100, which has already become a parable, repeats itself in tongues.

    And in general, some fighters and front-line bombers are riveted (and those are not quite modern, but that is, that is, there is nothing to be done), and AWACS aircraft (and electronic warfare and reconnaissance aircraft), thanks to which the effectiveness of the former is significantly increased, is financed by residual principle. Yes, and what to expect from the new commander-in-chief of the Aerospace Forces - land "boot" Surovikin. It looks like his deputies are the same "oak". And it also characterizes the intellectual level of those who proposed and approved Surovikin for the post of commander-in-chief of the Aerospace Forces ... And we joked about the fact that the tanker was in charge of the Ukrainian Navy! And then the better!
    Sorry for the comment that does not quite correspond to the content of the article, but it boiled.

    From the side of African states, everything looks very impressive. Well, they will take off, and where will they land? See for yourself where the Russian flag flew in 1913, in 1945 and where it flies today. You will be surprised.

      If you recall history, Boeing blocked the creation of the Il-96 with PW engines in the 90s.
