Heavy military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A of a new construction joined the composition of the Russian Aerospace Forces

Another serial military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A of the new assembly entered service with the Russian Aerospace Forces. This was reported by the press service of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).


According to a message posted on the UAC website, the aircraft was built on a new production line of JSC Aviastar-SP, tested and handed over to the military. This is probably the third new Il-76MD-90A assembled this year in Ulyanovsk, which began testing at the end of August this year. The fourth transporter started flying only in the first ten days of November and is not yet ready for transfer.

We make regular deliveries aviation equipment in the interests of the Ministry of Defense (...) today the Russian army received another serial military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A. (...) we are systematically increasing the production of these vehicles for the Russian military department, the next transporter is in a high degree of readiness

- said the head of Rostec Sergey Chemezov.

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.

Earlier, the 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. Despite the measures taken, it has not yet been possible to increase the number of aircraft produced.

    It will be possible if the development strategy ceases to rely on the Ministry of Finance

    The pace of production does not stand up to scrutiny, for failures in the delivery of equipment, the heads of enterprises must answer with their heads, or so, or we will never re-equip transport aviation, although not only there are such problems with it, but the management both sat with large positions and fat financial injections, and sits, the result is meager, there are no guilty, as well as the required amount of equipment.

      The production line is new in the literal and figurative sense of the word. I think there is still a shortage of qualified personnel and their number. Perhaps they paid little, young people do not go there to work.

        The thing is that this process is controlled by criminals like Chemezov, who are only capable of sawing and stealing, stealing and sawing. If UAC is taken out of Rostec's shit and put at the head not just another mediocrity and friend of the guarantor, but a professional, then production will quickly pick up pace and reach the planned volume.
        And the Chemezov gang can only bankrupt the military-industrial complex enterprises transferred to him and sell off their property, as they did with NPO Fazatron or are doing right now with the Motovilikha plant producing the Tornado-S and Tornado-G MLRS.

          And not only military-industrial complex enterprises. Everything that the sticky little hands of this pontorez and his efficient managers can reach. His deputy, Artyakov, deftly "jumped off" AvtoVAZ with his "golden parachutes" with his gop-company. How many millions (tens or hundreds) they "carried away" from the factory in their pockets is a secret with seven seals. Artyakov was "attached" to Samara as a governor... Half a year later, Samara howled... They kicked him out of there as well... This murky-stinking substance disappeared somewhere. Got out, about 2-3 months ago, at some presentation. Here, on the resource, there was an article about her - they blinded some kind of tin can for the landing, or something (as they said). Penetrating into the front projection from the PC ... Damn, they themselves would have been planted in it - and not under the PC, but under the KPVT. To be sure...

      Let there be more, but better.
      But in the current realities, it only gets worse and less.

    God forbid, there will be a war now, we will remain in principle without transport aviation at such a pace. Rebuilders ruined production

    Despite the measures taken, it has not yet been possible to increase the number of aircraft produced.

    There is a sure way - cut management salaries!
    Conduct an audit of production and compliance of the staffing table with the needs and results of the production itself.
    Check accounting.
    Everything ingenious is just...
    And so we can get to:
    Another of the twelve T-72bm3s upgraded this year has joined the armored forces of the Russian Federation

    Don't worry. Under the leadership of the Great Efficient Manager Serdyukov, Russia will soon be completely without its aviation, or will buy Rafali from France, since the purchase of helicopter carriers did not work out.

    For this to happen, the head must have the same executive assistants. These assistants should have people in the field. There should be a working FAS that monitors and responds to the overpricing of defense products. All these people d.b. working prosecutor's office, police and courts that could investigate the fact of theft on the ground. These prosecutor's offices should have a relationship with financial monitoring in order to identify and block the withdrawal of funds abroad and the FSB border service, which prohibits the persons responsible for all this from leaving. And even if all this worked, it turned out that the respondent is the son of one lady from the Federation Council and it is time for this industry leader to look for himself in private business.
