    Finally they have signed the deal after a long time

    Russia and India sign JV to co-design Medium Transport Aircraft

    AGREEMENT FOR SETTING UP OF JVC FOR DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF MULTIROLE TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT SIGNED

    The effort to design and develop a Multirole Transport Aircraft (MTA) by India and Russia received a significant boost with the signing of shareholders agreement for setting up of a joint venture company, here last night.

    A Joint Venture will now be formed between Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and the Russian Partners namely United Aircraft Corporation & Rosoboronexport to Co-develop and Co-produce Multirole Transport Aircraft (MTA).

    MTA is a 15-20 tonne payload capacity Aircraft which would meet the requirement of the Indian Air Force and the Russian Air Force. The project has been approved by both the Government of India and the Government of Russian Federation.

    The main features of MTA are: Maximum take-off weight 65 tonnes, Payload Capacity 15-20 tonnes, Cruise Speed 800 kmph, Range 2500-2700 km, Service ceiling 12 km. The Aircraft will have two engines, state of the art features such as fly-by-wire, full authority digital engine control, modern avionics and glass cockpit.

    The total development cost is around US $ 600.70 million (approx Rs.2900 crores) to be equally shared by both the sides. It is planned to manufacture 205 aircraft with 50:50 work share between HAL and the Russian partners.

    A Joint Venture Company (JVC) is being established with its headquarters at Bangalore, India for executing the MTA project in which HAL and Russian participants will have equal shareholding.

    Here is your first glimpse of what MTA will be, a freakn Antonova. Ilyushin will be going the way of the dodo.

    Ukraine intends to develop, together with Russia, a military transport aircraft An-178

    30.11.2010 / ITAR-TASS

    Ukraine intends to implement jointly with Russia program in a military transport aircraft An-178, said at a meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Cooperation Commission of the Federal Assembly of Russia and the Verkhovna Rada First Vice President of Enterprise Antonov Vladimir Shmyrev.

    "We have done preliminary design, and then begin the preparation of working documents," - he said.

    New aircraft designed to carry 15-20 tons of cargo. It will take place between the AN-74 and AN-70, and will replace the AN-12. It is planned that the wing, engines and cockpit Antonov-178 will borrow from the AN-148.

    "Ideology planes close, but the AN-178 can be considered a new aircraft: the fuselage of his other, will ramp" - said Shmyrev.

    According to him, the search is conducted of customers. "We offer, including the Russian military, to support this project", - said the representative of SOE.

    According to the draft of An-70 re-agreed technical specification for the aircraft with the Russian Defense Ministry, said Shmyrev. Currently the works on modernization of the aircraft.

    "In 2012 we have completed joint testing with state of the Russian Federation" - recalled the first vice-president of the Antonov. According to him, already have a real proposal for a build An-70 in Russia.

    AFAIK one of the most important things about the MTA was that it was to have the same internal cargo dimensions as the Il-76 except of course in length.

    The Antonovs don't meet that requirement and therefore are not in the running anyway.

    The Il-76 is 3.16m, the An-148 is 3.15m. They plan on redesigning the body anyway. If it has the 25t payload promised, or even fails to reach it but still gets 18.5, it is an easy choice for MoD to pick it.

    Considering Ilyushin is just another subsidiary of UAC, they can transfer the design to any bureau they want. India hasn't signed yet which is why Ukraine is pushing it now. They know UAC has nothing better yet.

    BELOW TEXT REPRODUCED IN PART FROM THE "Hindu Business Line"

    (1) The joint venture partners for the $600-million multi-role transport aircraft (MTA) project, Russia and India, are set to sign a contract for freezing the preliminary design for the aircraft later this week.

    (2) The Russian Air Force expects to place orders for 100 of these aircraft while the Indian Air Force is likely to take 45 of them. The rest will be taken by a third party.

    (3) Incidentally, the $600-million project is based on 2006 price levels when the project was first conceived. The new multi-role transport aircraft will replace the An24 and An12s.

    (4) The MTAs are in the 15 tonne to 20 tonne category and have a range of 2,500 km and can fly at 800 km per hour.

    (5) The joint venture is learnt to have been given a specific time-frame for freezing specifications like engine and also the systems and the basic layout apart from vendors.

    (6) Priority will be given for carrying out the work in the specified time frame and also to get the right technology and work within the cost.

    This development is significant because it comes at a time when UAC is seeking to create a global aerospace alliance.According to UAC's president Mikhail Pogosyan -
    UAC wants to move from participation in joint projects on an individual basis to creation of a united alliance for integration into the world aerospace industry and The foremost partner could be India. Other likely candidates for the alliance could be China, Indonesia, Italy, South Africa and Ukraine

    This is very good news. Also I hope now that Russia’s Ulyanovsk-based AVIASTAR has flown the first IL-476 prototype, I would hope that the IAF will seriously consider the prospects of upgrading the existing IL-76MDs to IL-476 configuration.

    India and Russia gave the green light on Friday to a long-delayed joint project to develop a Military Transport Aircraft, Russia's United Aircraft Corporation (OAK) said after the signing ceremony in New Delhi.

    "A contract was signed by the client, the joint Indian-Russian MTAL venture, and the contractors, Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and Russia's United Aircraft Corporation Transport Planes (OAK-TS)," OAK said.

    The signing gives an official start to the project, the technical details of which have been approved by the Indian and Russian defense ministries.

    "A long and complex preparatory phase in every sense has been completed for the project, the first Indian-Russian transport aircraft, which involves joint financing and workshare, and creation from scratch of a new plane for the air forces of both nations," OAK said in a statement.

    A large group of Indian aerospace engineers will arrive in Moscow in the near future to start work on the program.

    MTA will be a twin-engine light transport with a wingspan of around 100 feet (30 m), capable of carrying 18-20 ton payloads, with a maximum take-off weight of 65 tons, and speed of 500 mp/h. The aircraft is designed to replace the BAe 748 and Antonov An-32 in Indian service and An-12, An-26 and An-30 in Russian service.

    The program has had a protracted development so far. Indian daily The Hindu reported previously that Defense Minister A.K. Antony had expressed concerns over delays in the project. The paper cited sources saying further delays would be likely to be advantageous for rival aircraft such as Embraer's KC 390 which is expected to be ready in 2014.

    “It has taken the two nations a decade in effect to launch the project, and as the OAK statement alludes to this has been a 'long and complex preparatory phase,'" said Douglas Barrie, an air warfare analyst with the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies. "The hope must be this is not now replicated in the development phase. Both countries have had a long-standing requirement for an aircraft in this class, but there has been a lack of urgency in moving to meet this.”

    As mentioned on this site Antonov was also suggesting the An-148 or potential An-158 as a replacement...

    Again, very glad this has been signed and I hope they can get this thing into the air and into service as quickly as possible.

    Weird reporting... so it's still in preliminary design, but might have first flight in 2016... or as late as 2018. And MS-21 will be flying by then but they are not aiming to use PD-14? Ok, I could see India going for that because they can share engines with Il-76, but I expect Russia to want PD-14 for theirs (which the article doesn't really get into despite being Russian source).

    To be expected I suppose, the lighter An-12 equivalent 20 ton payload aircraft having two of the same engines as the big brother Il-76 60 ton payload transport that has four engines... wonder if that suggests an 80 ton payload family member with 6 engines, or two much bigger engines as the smaller end of the 2,4,6 engine family of 80 ton, 150 ton and 250 ton transport aircraft....

    "IL": the decision on joint R & D transporter is up to India

    General Designer of "Ilyushin Aviation Complex" Nikolai Talikov also said that the development of the project on creation of the Russian-Indian cargo plane affect the change of government in India and changing the financing scheme of such developments.


    Zhukovsky, August 26 - RIA Novosti. The question of the continuation of the project of Russian-Indian multi-role transport aircraft (MTS, Multirole Transport Aircraft, MTA) and early development activities (R & D) is under consideration by the Government of India, Russia is ready to begin operation, said on Wednesday RIA Novosti Chief Designer "Ilyushin Aviation Complex" (JSC "IL") Nikolai Talikov.

    Russia and India are interested in the joint venture for the production of helicopters K-226T
    "We have already carried out joint research projects, prepare the necessary documents to go to the ROC. Upon review of the materials that we have built together with India, it is decided to continue the work. We, on the other hand, is fully ready to start the ROC" - said Talikov during the MAKS-2015.

    He noted that in the course of development of the project affect both the change of government in India occurred in 2014 and the change in the financing scheme of such developments and other factors.

    As reported in June, the head of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), Yuri Slyusarev, Russia calls on India to accelerate work on a plane, so that the first flight took place until 2020.

    Intergovernmental agreement between Russia and India to jointly develop and build aircraft MTA was signed in 2007. For the first time the two countries have reached an agreement on the joint financing of an equal share of the new project in the aircraft industry. Production of the aircraft to be deployed both in Russia and in India.

    According to the regulations, MTA is classified as a medium military transport aircraft, which provides a wide range of various transport cargo weighing 20 tons at a distance of more than 2 thousand kilometers of unpaved and artificial runway. It provides for the operation of aircraft with high-airfields in any geographic and climatic conditions.

    "Ilyushin Aviation Complex" is a member of the KLA. Performs full range of activities associated with the development, modernization, testing, training and support of the production of aircraft models, continuing airworthiness of aircraft previously made the brand "Ilyushin".

    Russian-Indian military transport aircraft project frozen — manufacturer


    MThe contract on Il-214 has not been concluded with the Defense Ministry yet

    MOSCOW, January 13. /TASS/. The Russian-Indian joint project for the creation of a military transport plane has been frozen, CEO of the Ilyushin company Sergey Velmozhkin told reporters on Wednesday.

    "It has been frozen as a joint Russian-Indian project," the Ilyushin CEO said, commenting on the development of the plane that is also known as Il-214 and MTA.

    The contract on Il-214 has not been concluded with the Defense Ministry yet. "The preliminary design is practically ready. We’ll offer it, but the decision depends on the customer. Experts confirm that there is a demand indeed for such aircraft. We hope to clarify the issue somehow by the middle of the year," the CEO said.

    It was reported in early 2015 that Russia and India planned to agree in the third quarter of the year on the pre-contract documentation on the MTA program. The beginning of the main stage of the aircraft designing was planned for late 2015.

    And fro another source

    "We now have an intergovernmental agreement, it has not been canceled, but because of the caution of the Indian side of the project is actually frozen. Created preliminary design, the formal difference between the requirements of the military departments of Russia and India, only one - small the modularity of the PS-90", - he said. wrote:

    Does anyone has additional info on possible cancellation?
