Serial Il-76MD-90A of the new assembly and the upgraded Il-76MD-M joined the VTA VKS

Military transport aviation The Russian Aerospace Forces replenished with two aircraft at once, the military received another serial Il-76MD-90A and an upgraded Il-76MD-M. This was reported on the official website of the UAC.


The heavy military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A of a new assembly, assembled on the production line of JSC Aviastar-SP in Ulyanovsk, was handed over to the military. The aircraft, most likely, is the second one built this year and entered flight tests on June 7th. The first Il-76MD-90A this year was handed over to the military in April, and the third made its first flight only at the end of August. All transporters of the new assembly are built on a new production line, which was put into operation at the aircraft plant in 2019. The first two Il-76MD-90A, assembled on the line, were handed over to the Russian Aerospace Forces last year and two this year, given the new one.

In total, the Russian Ministry of Defense planned to purchase over 2030 Il-100MD-76A and the promising Il-90MD-78A tankers created on their basis by 90, but no one knows how it will actually be, the pace of construction of new aircraft is too low.

At the same time, the upgraded combatant Il-76MD-M was handed over to the military, the aircraft immediately went to the place of duty at one of the military air bases. During the modernization, the aircraft received new modern on-board radio-electronic equipment, including a flight and navigation system. Lighting and airborne transport equipment, defense and communications equipment were also replaced.

The updated aircraft can perform the tasks assigned to it at a higher level. In particular, the accuracy of aircraft navigation and landing will increase, as well as the quality of radio communications will improve.

      The production line is good.
      The entire aircraft industry should be transferred to such a line. And not only her.
      And to the aircraft manufacturers of success and Soviet volumes in production.

      Well, thank God, they began to write about fait accompli. And then everything was - they will develop, manufacture, equip, deliver, replenish, etc. yes

    It is clear that the production of new ones, the modernization of the operated ones, must be increased, according to the full program!

    Today, these letaks in the NWO are the least in demand ...., they probably carry something ..., but in comparison with railway transportation - a drop in the ocean .... and expensive So ask - well, write about two- three modernized tanks or something .... or due to overtime work they released zinc cartridges .... It especially smiled - modernization will improve the accuracy of landing ....., but before they threw out +/- 50 km.? The news, however, was on VO ...., they were looking forward to it.

      Each type of transport has its niche.
      It would be difficult to deliver cargo by rail to the Franz Josef Archipelago or the New Siberian Islands.
      Therefore, the "piece of iron" has been in demand for almost two centuries, which is economical and can deliver bulk cargo over long distances.

        In light of the delivery of cargo to the Franz Josef Archipelago or the New Siberian Islands, they modernized and increased the accuracy of landing .....

      You're strange.
      Since most of the transportation goes by rail, then we don’t need new transport workers?
      Your logic can be continued: not now, not a nuclear war, let's not update the Strategic Missile Forces and other nuclear weapons.
      Do you think so? :)

    Clear skies and soft clouds! I love this military transporter - I will forever be associated with my special missions in the Transcaucasus: you fly and under your feet you feel all the power of this hero ... I am glad that Russia does not abandon, but develops its VTA!
    BUT ... When will there be news that the troops have received "another batch of AWACS aircraft"? They are sooo necessary!

    The plane is most likely the second built this year.

    2 planes per year??? In the USSR, they built 2 aircraft per day!
    Although no, in the USSR only galoshes were made, the president repeatedly spoke about this.

    Il-76MD-90A new assembly, assembled on the production line of JSC "Aviastar-SP" in Ulyanovsk

    Maybe it would be better to collect ILs without any "production" lines? In Tashkent, at one time, they were collected about two dozen a year without any problems, on old stocks. It is some kind of absurdity to call a production line that produces 1-2 aircraft per year. These people from the UAC, like Rostec, love to promise, red words and PR. Such as "unparalleled", "production" lines, "new physical principles", etc. And when it comes down to production, that is, something always interferes with them.

      Hmm. Have you ever been to any aircraft factory?
      Do you know how many associates?
      The whole USSR worked for Tashkent.
      Now the Russian Federation produces only with its own components.

    it is necessary to radically increase the output of 76x. because AWACS, tankers, sanitary, and other specialized ones are needed. And this pace will not cover all the needs.
    and question! The 25th Guards Regiment of the VTA was based in Melitopol. Will my regiment be restored or not?

    With such a shameful pace of construction, it will be possible to talk about the complete re-equipment of the VTA only by 2050 .... Effective managers damn it ruined the aircraft industry
