The new IL-78М-90А tanker will be able to transport up to 110 additional tons of fuel

51
General Director of Aviastar-SP Enterprise Sergey Dementiev told a journalist TASSAfter installing two additional tanks, the new Russian Il-78М-90А tanker can carry up to 110 additional tons of fuel.




“The task for the next year is to lift the IL-78М-90А into the air. This is the first flight model to be tested by the state, and we hope to conclude a contract based on the results, ”he said. "Military Industrial Courier".

Dementiev noted that each additional fuel tank can hold up to 50 tons of fuel, and refueling can be made both from the tail section and from the side of two wings, which allows simultaneously filling three airplanes in the air. Earlier it was reported that on the ground it is possible to simultaneously refuel up to four aircraft.

According to the plans of the Ministry of Defense, the IL-78M-90A will be the main tanker, which will be adapted for air refueling of bombers, fighters and special aircraft aviation.

The new IL-78 received four engines of the new generation PS-90А-76 with increased take-off load: two modes are provided - maximum increased with 16 thous. Kg and maximum with thunder 14.5 thous.

    It would be nice to combine an air locator and a tanker. Flies and shines - two in one.

            Sorry, I didn’t understand, but can a plane carry more fuel than it is designed for? If it can carry 60tn, then how extra 110tn? IL becomes resuscitation MRII?

      This is not a multi-functional fighter for you, in which you simply hung up other weapons and flew, because there is only one task - to destroy the target.

      And here you combine the radar with the "gas station". The tasks are completely different.

        There is simply nothing impossible and sometimes universal is the most optimal in some tasks.
        Ideas flashed through her head and voiced and I do not consider her a utopia. Even the Su-24 can be used as a tanker, and this is a bomb carrier, but nevertheless it manages to fuel if necessary.

      And in vain minus. The locator is the only thing the locator gives the signal for everyone away from the hostilities, and not the full-fledged A-50 and the like, and this locator can fly for a long time because the fuel is dead and if necessary a group of planes spends or meets on the way back and refuel. A little less fuel, but you can put two radar operators with some equipment and that's it.
      So brainless minus without thinking about the possibilities of combining. And the most intelligent ones already want to fly into space at the refueling station and put masers lasers, and in general they are probably not on friendly terms with their heads.

    Journalists once again blurted out their tongues. Probably 110 tons - the total volume of fuel tanks + refueling tanks. IL-78M has a maximum of 126 tons of fuel, 36 of which are in the fuselage tanks, take-off weight is 210 tons. The IL-76MD-90A, on the basis of which a new refueling tank is created, also has a take-off weight of 210 tons. Or maybe 110 tons - the maximum mass of the transferred fuel (for IL-78M - 60-65 tons with a distance of 1800 km from its airfield).

    I also doubt 110 tons, but the KC-46A Pegasus also claims to be 140 tons see (http://www.boeing.com/defense/kc-46a-pegasus-tanker/) - an advertising booklet, but if KS-46 - it is 92 tons, in option "A" I think also 110 tons. Let's not teach the Yankees to make money - they also have PR in the main place, because they must be FIRST - already a fad in the brains of all Yankos. After all, the world must be deceived, then to "have."

    The realities are of course different with the same engines of 28 tons of thrust - we have 4 by 14 (16 take-off modes), and they have 2 by 28. With not very large differences in fuel economy, but a much better glider and Cx, of course, are preferable for the west (India, etc.), the KS-46 variant. Ours is enough for us - FOR ALL CASES OF LIFE ...

    Article old from 16 February 2015 year. But pride takes for Russia !!!!

    The IL-78M-90A under construction will be the first tanker aircraft manufactured in Russia.

    Prior to this, all IL-78 aircraft were assembled in Uzbekistan at TAPOiCH.

    IL-78M-90A is a modification of the IL-76MD-90A aircraft. At the request of the customer, he must retain the possibility of using it as a military transport: have a ramp, amphibious equipment, and, if necessary, allow the installation of fire fighting equipment. But at the same time, the aircraft has the ability to install refueling equipment - additional fuel tanks inside the cargo compartment and unified refueling suspension units. IL-78M-90A will be the main tanker aircraft, adapted for refueling airplanes of long-distance, front-line and special aviation. The aircraft will allow simultaneous refueling of two front-line aircraft (such as Su-27, MiG-29) using refueling units mounted on the wing. From the tail unit of refueling, it is possible to refuel long-range and special aviation aircraft. Also, when using the IL-78M-90A on the ground, simultaneous refueling of up to four aircraft is possible.

        The bar also has its drawbacks - for example, the simultaneous refueling of only one aircraft. A tanker with underwing UPAZ can simultaneously refuel 2 cars, reducing overall waiting time.

        In addition, equipment for the hose cone is still needed - because the same Su-24 and Su-33 have the ability to refuel each other. Yes, and the Yankee decks have such an option, EMNIP, is.

    As far as I understand, 2 tanks in the fuselage - this is 50 tons of fuel (optional), plus wing and center-wing tanks - 120 (approximately) tons ... The take-off of the IL-78M-90 is 210 tons. Not an article, but nonsense ... This "general" does not know what his enterprise is releasing.

    Yes, the author bent, about 110 additional tons of fuel ...

    Cool bent, but modestly and yet modestly, could write about 1100 additional tons.

    Now we can expect about the new Caliber with a firing range of 26000 km, this correspondent will write.

    So we will defeat everyone, like a brave tailor, who in one fell swoop seven beatings.

    Yes! Or I don’t know something and don’t understand or there is some mistake in the article. What is the engine's thrust to payload ratio? Four engines with a thrust of 16t. total thrust = 64t. able to lift 110t. fuel + the plane itself? What then is his efficiency, three to four times more than one?

    Really what? Pepelats without a gravitsapa will not take off. Maybe re-read the school textbook of physics?
    Of course, I did not study at aviation universities. But
    To get started, read how the wing works.
    The higher the speed, the greater its (wing) lift. Pressure from below increases and decreases from above. That is, the wing capacity increases. So the declared 210 tons is by no means a fantasy, but the real work of a glider and four engines

    Well, the person said “extra” - with understanding you need to say such people as General director relate (top-maneger, however) - of course I had in mind the "given" fuel. The arithmetic is simple: 109t in its tanks + 50t in the “cargo compartment” - 110t for “recoil” = 49t for “fly yourself”.
    To write is not laziness, but to count - "bummer"
