Ukraine will supply flying tankers to China instead of Russia



Ukraine will supply flying tankers Il-78 to China instead of a failed contract with Russia.

The contract with China was concluded in December 2011 of the year, during the stay of the previous Minister of Defense Dmitry Salamatin at the helm of Ukroboronprom. The contract for the total amount of 44,7 million dollars involved the delivery of three Il-78 tankers to China (after carrying out their repairs) and the corresponding aviation assets.

It should be noted that, at present, the only commercially produced aircraft in China, the H-6U tanker based on the Tu-16 bomber, is hardly capable of effectively refueling heavy vehicles. There are also plans to build a heavy Chinese tanker aircraft on the basis of the promising military transport aircraft Y-20.

The contract with Ukraine was concluded after complications with Russia. The fulfillment of the contract for the delivery to China of 34 of Il-76MD and 4 military transport aircraft of Il-78 tankers is actually frozen.

"The contract for the supply of Il-76MD and Il-78 aircraft to China has almost been stopped today," Viktor Livanov, Director General of the Ilyushin Aviation Complex, told Interfax-AVN.

According to him, the delivery of aircraft at the price specified in the contract will lead to huge losses. "At present, the issue is being discussed, including with the Chinese side, how to ensure the fulfillment of the contract in the current situation," said V. Livanov. At the moment, China receives a restored IL-76 from the Russian Air Force and a commercial company from Belarus.

The upcoming delivery is not the first experience of Ukraine in the supply of IL-78. Earlier, Ukrspetsexport completed the delivery of Il-78 tankers from Ukraine to Pakistan. The contract, signed by Ukrspetsexport at the end of 2006, provided for the supply of four Il-78 tankers.

Also, in 1998-1999, Ukraine exported five aircraft of this type with standardized unified refueling aggregates UPAZ-1 to Algeria, where they received onboard numbers 7T-WIL (formerly number XXUMX), 76610T-WIQ (No. XXUMX), 7T -WIN (#76653), 7T-WIF and 76690T-WIS.

At the end of 2005, another aircraft (No. 76759, serial No. 64-10) was sold in the United States to North American Tactical Aviation Inc., receiving the American Civil Registration Number N78GF. According to some reports, it is used there to assess opportunities. aviation potential adversaries. Another such aircraft (No. 76767, serial No. 65-10) is currently undergoing pre-sale training at the Kulbakino airfield and will also go overseas after some time.

Another former tanker (No.76721, serial No.56-07), devoid of aerial refueling system and other military indications, currently has documents for an IL-76TD cargo aircraft and is operated in the interests of the Angolan government under the registration number D2-FEW.

Another IL-78 converted into a cargo plane of the state enterprise of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense “Ukrainian Aviation Transport Company” and had a registration number UR-UCI (formerly UR-76415, serial No. XXUMX-61), 10 in July 17 crashed near Eritrean the capital of Asmara. Two other ULTR-owned former IL-1998 converted into cargo aircraft, UR-UCG (UR-78) and UR-UCF (UR-76414), according to the order of the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine No. 76412 from 559 August 13, including a large number other aircraft equipment are excluded from the state register of civil aircraft of Ukraine due to the fact that they were not issued airworthiness certificates or flight permits for 2008 months. Both are currently at the airport "Zaporozhye".

    Ukraine has the right to sell its property at its discretion. It seems to me that Ukrainians have decided to completely switch to Any. Yes, and the military budget is bursting at the seams .. So there are only two options to sell, while buying or cutting, they will rot anyway ...

    The formation and armament of the personal regiment of President Yanukovych for the protection and defense of real estate of the "family" has ended. Armed with the latest examples of combat tracked and wheeled vehicles, armored vehicles of our own and imported production, including the Hummer. Artillery systems, including salvo fire, portable and mobile ATGMs, short-range and medium-range air defense systems, plus personnel engaged not in combat training, but in combat training. He devours the main budget for the army. This is your "funny" presidential regiment. On the parade ground march on foot, horse pranks. They wave their checkers, twist the carbines, sit on the twine. Let's sell a couple of tankers. Help for the army if everything is not plundered. All the same, there is no one to fill up and there is nothing. We have all the army news compiled. Withdrawn from the composition, decommissioned, sold, disbanded.

      This is something you bent into the wrong steppe, even if you even form such a regiment, then it’s certainly not part of the Armed Forces (it will be bold for the Armed Forces), but as part of the UDO (in Russian the abbreviation - UGO) will not be maintained at the expense of Sun. And the rest is all right: write off, sell, disband.

    It is interesting how much more IL-76 remains in the storage tanks of Ukraine, as I understand it, they themselves do not produce IL-76, but they are selling the inheritance of the USSR. So you can and without pants, sorry, harem pants, to stay.

      IL-76 was made only in Tashkent, in Taganrog it was altered for various needs, so that Ukraine can only patch up and supply a set of spare parts. It’s become meaningless to exploit them, especially after the closure of TAPOiCh ...

          Well, paradise wasn’t there at all and not everywhere. Ecology, for example, in the Donbass was not .... useless, though now, with the collapse of large chemical enterprises and the closure of many mines, it has become better, only people have nowhere to work. But in general, everything in the USSR is processed enterprises were built closer to the border, and Ukraine inherited a great legacy.

            I guess you're right, only I judge by children's impressions. In Kiev boutiques there were a lot of toys, delicious cakes and ice cream, In Uzin my grandmother had fresh fresh milk, lard with garlic and black bread, tasting cherries, apples, pears ... in short, childhood impressions.

    The miser pays twice or the Chinese want to buy a Lego constructor again. If the flying tanker does not reach, it will probably make it.

      Well, the Indians are already toying with your nuclear submarine "Nerpa" how many millions were spent on its repairs ????
      And the purchase of IL-78 from you at sky-high prices probably does not suit them.
      And you’re wrong on the designer’s brush, take off there will be as many problems as with your spare parts, then all the local ones laughing Russia does not release them.

            I do not understand any more what kind of nonsense are you talking about? We have a guy from Ukraine, he has parents and sisters there. Every month they send their ENTIRE salary there. He does not walk or shout that he is from Ukraine and he is the longest. All ko..ly, etc. He has never retreated and he is an excellent scout. I'm already tired of hearing about the division of our peoples. I consider us fraternal peoples. Tired of hearing talk about the USSR, everything was bad there, everything was done badly, etc. Then I have a rac proposal, since most of those who speak badly about the Union were born (made) in the Union, let them shoot themselves. After all, they were born in the USSR, and there, what they did not do, then everything is bad and it must be destroyed. Let them show by personal example how to get rid of the "Soviet past". Kharkov armored, I think, the same not only Ukrainians built and many other things in Ukraine. So let's raze everything to the ground, it's the damned mos ... Ali they built, or rather, they built the whole Soviet People. Let's take it down? How do you like the offer? Do you really see the columns of Russian armored vehicles heading towards Kiev? I hope my impression of you is wrong, but so far I read the opposite in your comments. Why can't our countries live in peace? Is it necessary to measure who is longer? There below 'Nevsky' writes very well, read it, quite interesting. Sorry for the harshness, this is from misunderstanding.

    Firstly, they sell junk.
    Secondly, since the Chinese take this junk, and are not going to buy from us under a frozen contract, it means that they need to slam something (another technology) for their flying stupid tank.
    Well, once again it's time for us to understand: "you do not score, they score for you"

    Two more "Aurors" are in caponiers in Kryvyi Rih. Transfer the rest to Melitpol to the storage base, most likely from there they draw "resources". five days ago I heard a familiar hum (the work of the D30KP cannot be confused) raised my head - he was dear, called friends, calmed down, Sudanese. soon there will be nothing of their own.
