    I don't follow, did just Indians pull out or is the whole thing cancelled?

    Would Russia proceed with the project solo? They do need this plane now with Ukraine out of the picture.

    I also thought that.
    It seems, reading the article, India have not yet come fully on board, maybe something to do with the "modularity" of the engines.

    I think Russia will still go ahead. As PapaDragon says, there is a need to replace existing ageing platforms designed and built from the time of the Soviet Union and before Ukraine went all crazy.

    If Il/HAL MTA is going to be abandoned then my opinion for a possible solution for RuAF tactictal transport to replace old An-12s could be an enlarged version of Il-112V

    TR1 on another forums stated that it is good that the project is frozen since Russia should concentrate on light and heavy transport for now. I tend to agree. But if this really is in demand, then I would say they can work it themselves and India can purchase it later if they so choose to.

    Russia 'freezes' India out of MTA project, to proceed alone as Il-214
    Gareth Jennings, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly | 12 January 2016

    http://www.janes.com/article/57169/russia-freezes-india-out-of-mta-project-to-proceed-alone-as-il-214

    Russia looks set to continue development of the Multirole Transport Aircraft (MTA) on its own after Ilyushin froze co-operation with India on the joint project, state media announced on 13 January.

    With the preliminary design of the twin turbofan tactical airlifter now all but finalised, United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) will likely continue with the detailed design phase of the Il-214, as it is known in Russia, through to production without Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), the TASS news agency quoted Ilyushin CEO Sergey Velmozhkin as saying.

    "It has been frozen as a joint Russian-Indian project," he said.

    While the report gave no particular reason for this development, it was reported in December 2015 that UAC and HAL were in disagreement over the type of powerplant to be fitted to the aircraft, with the former preferring the PD-14M - a modified version of the already in-service Aviadvigtel PS-90A-76 turbofan as fitted to the Il-76 'Candid' - and the latter wanting a completely clean-sheet engine with full authority digital engine control (FADEC).

    "The PS-90 does not have FADEC but the necessity of such a system was not there in the technical specifications initially," the president of UAC, Yury Slyusar, told the Indian Economic Times at the time. "It was added later. The technical requirement [for performance] is fully satisfied with the PS-90 engine.

    "So the official status is that we have finished the advanced preliminary design stage over a year ago [and] that has to be accepted by the Indian side. We hope they accept the design and move forward," he added.

    The Il-214 is expected to have a payload of between 15 and 20 tonnes and a range of 2,500 to 2,700 km, which will put it in the same class of airlifter as the Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules (22 tonnes) and the Embraer KC-390 (23 tonnes).

    The sooner it can replace the AN-12 the better and if the new engines are related to the new engines in the Il-476 then all the better.

    India is anyways more keen to get Super Hercules variants as i can notice they might even sabotaged whole deal on purpose, wih IL out of picture they might be able even to obtain licence to assemble them or something of a sort.

    India Is Out, But Russia Continues Developing Il-214 Transport

    The Russian government will fund development of the Ilyushin Il-214 medium airlifter and production of about a hundred such aircraft for the Russian Air and Space Force (VKS), according to industry sources close to the program. Allocations for procurement will be provided in the Kremlin's new Armament Program after 2020, following the current program timed for 2010-2020.

    The Il-214 is, effectively, a version of the Indo-Russian Multirole Transport Aircraft (MTA). Moscow and New Delhi signed a government-to-government agreement for the MTA in 2007. This was followed three years later by a co-development agreement at the industry level. A newly established Multirole Transport Aircraft Ltd. (MTAL) company based in Bangalore made its first appearance at airshows with a stand at AeroIndia 2010.

    The development costs were previously estimated at $600 million, and were to be covered by both parties on equal terms. Serial examples of the aircraft would cost between $35 and $40 million. The global market for the MTA was forecast at 400 units, including special mission versions for electronic warfare, airborne early warning and control, reconnaissance and patrol and airborne tanker.

    India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL) and its Russian collaborators signed agreements in 2012 that established a joint team of 150 designers in Moscow and Bangalore. The team started working on MTA documentation in December that year. Shortly thereafter, however, the effort was discontinued over disagreements and misunderstandings. In January, Ilyushin general manager Sergei Velmozhkin told reporters: “As a joint project between Russia and India, this project has been halted.”

    Designers in Moscow, however, continue to develop documentation for the aircraft tailored to VKS requirements. A September 2015 protocol between Russia’s Ministry of Defense and industry calls for completion of Il-214 development.

    “The Indians are very difficult people to do business with,” Ilyushin general designer Nikolai Talikov told AIN. “At first, it looked like they are all set to go, but later they began to hesitate. The two countries considered many options, including joint production of Il-114 and, later, the MTA…In the end, Russia will make this aircraft alone, under the designation Il-214.”

    The Il-214 program is currently at the draft design stage. Documentation for the manufacturing plant—Aviastar, in Ulianovsk—will be prepared after the design house completes similar work on the smaller Il-112V tactical airlifter for production at the VASO plant in Voronezh. According to Talikov, VASO is on track to make an airframe for structural testing this year, followed by a first prototype and its maiden flight in 2017.

    Subsequently, the Il-214 prototype is planned for completion “around 2020,” Talikov said. Developmental prototypes and early production examples will have twin Aviadvigatel PS-90A1 turbofans, each developing 17.4 tons of thrust. These will later be replaced by the more advanced PD-14M producing 18 tons of thrust.

    The current work schedule and engine choice are markedly different from earlier ones. Under agreements signed in 2007-2010, the MTA was to make its maiden flight between 2016 and 2018. It was to be powered by CFM International CFM56 or IAE V2500 turbofans, as these were favored above Russian and Ukrainian options to power 45 deliverable aircraft for the Indian air force.

    The most recent information on MTA/Il-214 performance and specification metrics available from Russian industry sites specify a maximum takeoff weight of 68 metric tons (149,912 pounds), maximum payload of 20 metric tons (44,092 pounds)and runway length at 1,600 m to 1,800 m (5,250 to 6,000 feet). Design targets include transportation of a 20-ton payload to 2,250 km (1,214 nm) and 10-ton payload to 6,400 km (3,454 nm) at a cruise speed of 437 ktas. The aircraft’s service life will be 35 years and 30,000 flight hours.

    Outwardly, the Il-214 resembles a classic twinjet with T-shaped empennage and two high-bypass turbofan engines on underwing pylons. The cabin cross section (with fuselage diameter of about 16 feet) is similar to the much heavier Il-76 four-engine transport. The Il-214 will be able to accommodate two standard army trucks or five airline containers. In a single-deck layout, the aircraft would accommodate 70 to 82 paratroopers; a double-decker would carry up to 150.

    The crew station is modeled after that of the Il-476 and features six multifunction displays and two head-up displays. Takeoff and landing operations can be made using both paved and unpaved runways, in hot-and-high environments, and during day or night conditions.

    Well at least they will be able to get some forward progress on this aircraft.

    Having the same engines as the Il-476 will be a real bonus in terms of purchasing power and maintainence issues... the parts pool for engines can be made larger and therefore cheaper...

    The sooner they can get these aircraft into service the better... there is a market for 20 ton payload aircraft and they can feed both ends with the new aircraft being sold to those that can afford new aircraft and surplus An-12s being sold to those who can't.

    One less Antonov on Russias books.

    Russia confirms that a joint Indo-Russian project to develop a new medium-airlift military transport aircraft, the UAC/HAL II-214 Multi-role Transport Aircraft (MTA) has been terminated.

    "In practice, not all projects yield results. During the execution of the project, which lasted five years, we did not manage to find such a solution that would be beneficial for the two countries," Russian Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told TASS Friday.

    According to him, Russia will switch to other more interesting projects being executed with India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Corporation.

    At present, Russia is working on a joint fifth-generation fighter aircraft (FGFA) with India and it is fulfilling its obligations, President of Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) Yuri Slyusar told the news agency on Thursday.

    So what is the solution now for a medium transport for VKS?

    The MTA has been stopped, but the Il-214 will be developed for the Russian military.

    It basically replaces the An-12 and is in the C-130 range of performance... so all the worlds An-12s and possibly some C-130s could be replaced by the Il-214... a huge market.

    Once it is in full production I am sure India will probably take another look... especially with the cost of the late model C-130s.

    This aircraft has been designed as a 2 engine aircraft for the size of the An-12 (around 20 tons of payload).

    It means the project has a potential of development for 3 sizes (20, 40 and 60 tons of payload), with 2, 4 and 6 engines, like in the case of the PTS (of 80, 160 and 240 tons of payload).

    A Il-214 of 20 tons of payload would be in the size of the An-12.
    A Il-214 of 40 tons of payload would be in the size of the Tu-204/214, where today there is not a transport aircraft.
    A Il-214 of 60 tons of payload would be in the size of the Il-76.

    Surely something to explore. Even it engages well with the progression of the PTS project:

    A PTS of 80 tons of payload would be in the size of the An-22.
    A PTS of 160 tons of payload would be in the size of the An-124.
    A PTS of 240 tons of payload would be in the size of the An-225.

    I quite agree...

    Having read this thread however I do take exception to the titles of many of the articles... Russia has not frozen India out of any damn thing... the two countries had requirements for a similar aircraft and as usual India has been pissing around with their demands for this or that but at no extra cost.

    Sometimes it works and they get a better product, but most of the time it is just delays and frustration.

    A light transport should not be that complicated and I think Russia will be better off alone on this one.

    Ilyushin aircraft company developing new transport plane for Russia’s Defense Ministry

    The new military transport plane will have a lifting capacity of 20 tonnes

    LE BOURGET. June 20. /TASS/. Russia’s Ilyushin Aircraft Company is developing a new military transport plane with a lifting capacity of 20 tonnes, Ilyushin Chief Designer Nikolai Talikov told TASS on Tuesday.

    "Now we have just formed a package for the medium transport plane. This is a 20-tonne plane, which by its cross-section dimensions is similar to the Il-76. We have already launched work on this plane. The technical assignment has been formulated and actually approved and then all the stages will follow," the chief designer said.

    The new plane’s name may change but so far it is known as the Il-214, the chief designer said.


    "Now it will be, perhaps, named somewhat differently. This is a twine-engine plane for medium tasks, shorter than the Il-76," he noted.

    The Ilyushin Aircraft Company is also offering Russia’s Defense Ministry the Il-76MF version. This is the modification of the classical Il-76 plane extended by 6.6 meters, he added.

    Speaking about the perspective heavy plane (the Il-106), the chief designer said that its characteristics "were agreed with the military but the issue of financing has yet to be resolved."

    As was reported earlier, the Ilyushin Aircraft Company resumed on its own intuitive the development of the Il-214 medium-class military transport plane, which had been earlier developed jointly with India as part of the MTA (Medium Transport Aircraft) project. The reasons for the suspension of the Russian-Indian project were not officially reported.

    New details and the development of a medium military transport aircraft

    As Aleksandra Djordjevic and Ivan Safronov write in the article "Radio engineering steers" Ilom ", published in today's issue of the newspaper Kommersant, the former general director of the RTI concern Igor Bevzyuk started work in the aircraft industry, he will start the creation of the medium military transport company in the Ilyushin company of MTA Aircraft. The work was originally planned to be carried out jointly with India, but the partner left the project. Now, "IL" will independently make the MTA to replace the An-12, whose flight resource will be exhausted by 2024.



    Igor Bevziuk was born on January 21, 1977 in Krasnodon. He graduated from Samara State Aerospace University in 2002, and five years later - Airbus Business academy in France. At the beginning of his career he worked at the Taganrog enterprise named after Beriev, where he worked on the projects of special aircraft. After five years I worked at the Airbus Engineering Center in Russia (IKAR), where I went from the engineer of the strength department to the program manager. Worked as the program manager of the joint project of UAC and Irkut with the EADS and Airbus corporations for the conversion of A320 / 321 aircraft. In June 2011, he joined the RTI, which later became the head. As reported by Kommersant on June 28, the top manager left the concern in May because of disagreements with AFK Sistema, the main shareholder.

    Several new sources in the aviation industry told Kommersant about the new appointment of the former head of the RTI concern Igor Bevzyuk: according to them, he was recently invited to the position of the head of the project for the creation of a medium military transport aircraft. They say that Igor Bevzyuk began to work there on a part-time basis from the middle of July, but he did not hurry to finalize himself, considering other job offers. But last week the former top manager of the RTI began to take on new responsibilities, agreeing to work in the aviation industry. The general director of the IL company and the vice-president of the United Aircraft Corporation OAK Alexey Rogozin told Kommersant that the company will become the lead developer of the SVTS, for its implementation a special design and technical directorate is being formed, headed by Mr. Bevzyuk. "He not only has a lot of experience in aircraft construction, but he also proved his ability to implement complex technical tasks in the shortest possible time in the interests of the Defense Ministry," Rogozin told Kommersant. He added that this type of aircraft would be in demand not only in the Russian armed forces, And from foreign customers.

    As Igor Bevzyuk himself told "Kommersant", he officially started work on August 10. According to him, the MTA project is in the pre-contract phase: "At the moment, the requirements of the technical assignment are being finalized with the customer". The top manager noted that the MTA involves extensive use of equipment and technical solutions from the "related" programs of the IL company - IL-76, IL-112, etc. "This will not only ensure continuity, but also cut costs and time frames On development ", - assured the top manager. According to "Kommersant", the project manager has already started forming a team of specialists with experience in Russian and foreign aviation programs.

    The MTA is a tactical military transport aircraft, which is primarily designed to replace the AN-12, whose flight life after 2024 will be exhausted. Initially, the MTA was developed by Il, Irkut Corporation and Indian Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL): the relevant intergovernmental agreement on joint development and construction was signed by Russia and India back in 2007. The Russian and Indian sides were to own 50% of the shares of the enterprise, and the production was planned to be placed in both countries. However, at the end of 2015, Delhi withdrew from the project (according to Kommersant, due to financial difficulties and the reluctance of the military to take the machine into service). The appearance of the aircraft has yet to be determined, but the company says that the size of the cargo cabin and a significant part of the airborne equipment will be unified with the Il-76MD-90A military transport aircraft, the serial production of which is set in Ulyanovsk. This year, the project will be allocated 3 billion rubles.

    Nope. One of reasons India pulled out (or so they say) they didn't want PD-14.

    My guess is that they didn't want to pay their share as usual.

    Once Il-112 is in production they will probably move on to Il-214 development.

    I thought one of the reasons the Indians were unhappy was the lack of FADEC, yet PD-14 has that and much more? There are more countries that can produce nuclear weapons than can produce engines on the level of PD-14.
