In Ulyanovsk, the new IL-476 military transport aircraft, the order for which only through the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation is more than 100 machines, was lifted into the air, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday at the 4th annual Russia Calling Investment Forum. Interfax reported this.

“For the first time, we were able to lift into the air, put an IL-476 on the wing. At 70 percent a completely new plane compared to previous versions,” said Rogozin.

According to him, the aircraft is "highly respected in the West"; it is one of the defendants in transit cargo transportation for the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan.

“We have made a new composite wing, a new power plant, a new adapter for analog and digital systems. In fact, this is a new car. And this is an aircraft that will have a great civilian purpose,” the Deputy Prime Minister said.

However, later Dmitry Rogozin in his Twitter clarified that it was not a full-fledged test flight. “The plane has already been torn from the ground a couple of times, but the first full test flight of the IL-476 will take place in Ulyanovsk the other day. Serial purchases through government customers may amount to more than 50 transporters, and we expect to sell as many more to Russian private air carriers. Total - more than 100 machines in the domestic market, ”- said in a statement by Mr. Rogozin on the microblogging service Twitter.

      he is gaining political points, and there seems to be nothing to blame yet, well, apart from friendship with Yushchenko and the fact that basically his words are plans or promises.

      Yes, it’s not very visible. A few days ago there was an article here or there on sdelanounas.ru Rogozin gave an interview, since his posts were occupied by a whole paragraph, lines 15. It is a pity that there are few such people, but we need a lot of them, to raise Russia.

    Hello everyone!
    Explain such a question to me. Why do we need 2 transporters of the same class?
    If we raise the wing of the IL-476 and An-70.
    Or is it just to support our Ukrainian comrades.
    And why then are the An-70s going to rivet in Russia?

      Well, why did the Americans give up Globmaster and Hercules? One on screw, the other on turbojet.

      Some sources write that the payload of IL-476 is 50-60 or even 70 tons, if you believe this, they are not quite classmates.

      Personally, my opinion is that they took on the An-70 in order to take KAPO’s serious business, and before the appearance of PAK YES, modernization took place there and everything went as it should.

    Dear Trofimov174, but in my opinion the Globmaster and Hercules planes are of different classes.
    You compare:
    Hercules
    Payload: 18 955 kg (at + 2,5g)
    Length: 29,79 m
    Wingspan: 40,41 m
    Globmaster
    Payload 76 kg
    Length: 53,04 m
    Wingspan: 51,74 m

    Everywhere they write that this is almost a new plane, everything has been modernized and improved. Then someone can answer me - why did they keep the navigator’s cabin on it? Maybe there is also a slide rule in the kit laughing ?

      This many targeted transport aircraft can be operated
      at airfields with a weak RTS - provision or lack thereof. As an example: When in Prague in 1968. sent an An-12 regiment with our "peacekeepers", the Czechs de-energized their airfields. The first An made a landing (at night, visually)
      and began to "start" all the regiment's planes by radio. Operation was successfully completed.
      That is why the full crew is still provided on such aircraft.

        He flew in a crew with Major Stepanov. He planted then AN-22. Our tanks set up along the runway, the headlights turned on. It was raining, the brushes could not cope, opened the window. There was no fuel for the second run. The call sign of the airfield was "Porcupine", the Czechs were playing the air. "Your Porcupine is dead and you are dead."
        I remembered!

      On Sunday I was in Gostomel, so the An-70 had less take-off than the An-74. It seems that he could take off from a place, and just ran for the audience for a run.
