    Like I have already proven multiple times who the ignorant one is. It's you eehnie your the most ignorant person on this forum and I've proven it. It's now a FACT. And do you really think any russian company including Rostec haven't seen the issue with sanctions and are totally incapable of producing such an engine. I thought you were a master at engineering and would have thought of that clearly not. And eehnie you will never overcome your fear of being wrong or your fear of accepting anyone else's views might be right including experts. You will always show your superior complex this is a fact. I can only but pity you because you don't see your illness and therefore without you noticing the problem can never overcome the illnesses you clearly display.

    The IL-112 project has some serious problems:
    https://lenta.ru/news/2018/07/08/samolet/

    Perhaps it's time to revive the TU-330:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_Tu-330
    https://www.aviaport.ru/conferences/43064/
    Tu-330
    This versatile aircraft is also in a developmental stage. It can replace both the An-12 and the heavier Il-76 on middle-distance flights. Like other Russian military transport aircraft, it can be operated from unpaved runways.
    It is similar to the civil version of the Tu-214, which is already being produced. In case of an urgent order, the aircraft can be designed and certified in a very short time.
    Tu-330 can carry up to 35 tons over a distance of up to 3,000 km, and with a load of 20 tons, can fly over 5,600 km.

    George1 Very happy to.

    Just for the record I did on multiple occasions tried to compromise with him and end the discussion but he refused and failed to acknowledge. I even suggested the ignore function he can use. But he also insulted many times before and not just me.

    IMO they wanted it developed & built with Indian $ & spend less operating it than a bigger jet powered TU-330 that may never be exported. Also, Tupolev never built a cargo transport before.

    The Il-112 is a 5 ton payload class aircraft... it will be replacing An-24/26/32 class transports and possibly An-72... there is no way at all that they would choose to revive the Tu-330... a 35 ton payload class transport to replace a 5 ton payload aircraft.

    The Tu-330 wont be revived because it would be redundant with the Il-276 being developed instead of the joint Russian Indian MTA...

    I insulted not George1. I received insults.

    Insults were given by a lot of people and that is the problem... who insulted who first might influence who gets the longest ban, but everyone who insults will get a ban if it continues...

    Hope we are clear...

    Is there a reason why Russia was pursuing the IL-112 over this? Haven't heard much about the tu-330

    Russia is pursuing the Il-112 and Il-112V because they want a light transport to replace the An-24/26 and An-32 families in the 6 ton payload transport range.

    It will be smaller and lighter and cheaper than An-12s in the 20 ton payload range, but then that will be replaced by the Il-276 reduced size Il-476 aircraft in the 20-30 ton payload range.

    I was a little concerned when he mentioned tu-330 because I saw it as a bigger class of aircraft to what the IL -112 was replacing.

    Although some silly mistakes were made with IL-112 money has been invested and Russia needs a replacement so I firmly believe that it isn't under threat.

    So new Russian line up for transport aircraft will be:

    IL-112
    IL-276
    IL-476
    Pak Ta

    Is this correct?

    IL-112
    IL-276
    IL-476
    Pak Ta

    Pretty much, but I do hope the PAK TA expands into three related aircraft with 2, 4, and 6 engines in the 90-100 ton, 120-150 ton, and 200-250 ton payload class to replace the An-22, An-124, and An-225 respectively. A unified modular design that could perhaps have wing and fuselage inserts to increase or decrease size and of course add or remove engines...

    Some of those new rockets will need external carriage and of course they are planning new Shuttle type aircraft too, so they might need 3-4 An-225 types in a few years time.

    Note the Il-112 is a 5-6 ton payload aircraft able to replace the An-26 types, while the Il-276 will be a 20-30 ton payload aircraft to replace the An-12.

    The Il-476 is a 60 ton payload aircraft.

    You are ignoring the main weakness of the concept: The lack of sales. The lack of interest and orders of the customers.

    The An-2 is in widespread use in Russia in civilian use... as mentioned there have been large numbers of replacements offered but all have generally failed because they were too expensive or not simple enough or simply could not match the performance of the An-2.

    If this new plane is only 1.2 million then it should be very very popular as a replacement...

    To quote Wiki
    Its remarkable durability, high lifting power, and ability to take off and land from poor runways have given it a long service life. The An-2 was produced up to 2001 and remains in service with military and civilian operators around the world.

    IN fact you should read the wiki page:

    The Antonov An-2 is a mass-produced single-engine biplane that has been commonly used as a utility and agricultural aircraft. It is deliberately furnished with a minimum of complex systems. The crucial wing leading edge slats that give the aircraft its slow flight ability are fully automatic, being held closed by the airflow over the wings. Once the airspeed drops below 64 km/h (40 mph), the slats will extend because they are on elastic rubber springs.[4] Under typical conditions, the take-off is complete within 170 m (560 ft) while the landing run requires 215 m (705 ft); these figures will vary dependent upon various factors, such as the aircraft's take-off/landing weight, the external air temperature, surface roughness, and headwind.[4]

    The An-2 is equipped with various design features which make it suitable for operation in remote areas with unsurfaced airstrips. It is fitted with a pneumatic brake system (similar to those used on heavy road vehicles) to stop on short runways, along with an air line attached to the compressor, so the pressure in the tires and shock absorbers can be adjusted without the need for installing specialised equipment.[4] The batteries, while sizable, are relatively easy to remove, so the aircraft does not need a ground power unit to supply power for starting the engine. Likewise, there is no need for an external fuel pump to refuel the aircraft as it is provided with an inbuilt onboard pump, which allows the tanks to be filled from simple fuel drums.[4]
    Antonov An-2 (An2-TP)

    The An-2 has no stall speed, a fact which is quoted in the operating handbook. A note from the pilot's handbook reads: "If the engine quits in instrument conditions or at night, the pilot should pull the control column full aft and keep the wings level. The leading-edge slats will snap out at about 64 km/h (40 mph) and when the airplane slows to a forward speed of about 40 km/h (25 mph), the airplane will sink at about a parachute descent rate until the aircraft hits the ground."[4] As such, pilots of the An-2 have stated that they are capable of flying the aircraft in full control at 48 km/h (30 mph) (as a contrast, a modern Cessna four-seater light aircraft has a stall speed of around 80 km/h (50 mph)). This slow stall speed makes it possible for the aircraft to fly backwards relative to the ground (if the aircraft is pointed into a headwind of roughly 56 km/h (35 mph), it will travel backwards at 8.0 km/h (5 mph) whilst under full control).[4]

    The An-2's ability, looks and flying characteristics, and its status as one of the world's biggest single-engined production biplanes, mean that demand for the An-2 is increasing in Western Europe and the United States, where they are prized by collectors of classic aircraft, making it an increasingly common sight at airshows. Many western countries prohibit the use of the An-2 commercially because the aircraft has not been certified by the relevant national aviation authorities. These restrictions vary by country, but all prevent the An-2 being used for any 'for profit' purpose, with the exception of the United States, where An-2s imported since 1993 are limited to experimental certification

    Say it to Ukraine.

    Why?

    Give specific examples.

    I remember you saying the Risachok was the successor of the An-2/4/6. But the Risachok also lacks orders. The numbers of An-2/4/6 are declining with the time, but there are not sales of their supposed successors. These aircrafts are not being useful, are not attracting to the custormers. Not even to the former users of An-2/4/6. While you continue ignoring the main problem, you will continue giving wrong opinions, like at the time of the Risachok.

    The Rysachok was supposed to replace the An-2, but then so was the An-3, and also a few other planes, but in the end there were reasons it didn't replace the An-2... most of the time it was cost... the new aircraft were too expensive or couldn't operate in the same conditions.

    It didn't replace the An-2 because it never got beyond prototype stage...


    As of 2015, there were thousands of An-2s remaining in operation around the world, including over 1,500 in Russia, 294 in Kazakhstan and 54 in Ukraine.[3]

    There is plenty of market for a new plane in that performance class...

    Then it is not ideal. Well, aircrafts for training of auxiliary/civil aircraft pilots are not a new concept. The development of this concept is leading to aircrafts in the mold of the Diamond DA42, that are under 2.2 tons MTOW. These aircrafts allow to smaller operational costs than the An-2 for the training of auxiliary/civil aircraft pilots.

    The DA42 is a foreign aircraft, and would be next to useless for parachute training or light cargo delivery.

    Also, new name of that aircraft is Baikal.

    Good... TVS-2-DTS is just too much of a mouthful.

    Ukrane and the countries that are helping to Ukraine are losing millions in UAVs that are fairly smaller and have smaller signature, but still are shut down by manpads, not by bigger air defense systems.

    In the rest of the comment there is nothing that makes to increase the demand of this type of aircrafts that is very low. Unlikel in the case of the helicopters, the number of customers of new aircrafts around this size is very low in this century. The declining in the demand was very strong in the 1990 has has not been recovered in the last years, unlike for other aircrafts.

    And the strong competence of the helicopters is only increasing:

    Continuation of the Ka-62 helicopter program

    bmpd
    September 8Th, 4:18

    As reported on September 6, 2018 PJSC "Russian Helicopters", a flight model of the newest civil multipurpose helicopter Ka-62, manufactured by JSC "AAK" Progress "named after N.I. Sazykin "holding company" Helicopters of Russia "(part of Rostekh State Corporation), made its first flight and landed on Russky Island on the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) in Vladivostok, where it will be presented to the participants and guests of the Eastern Economic Forum.

    The first first flight prototype of the Ka-62 helicopter (OP-1, serial number 97876210101) while boarding the Russian Island on the campus of the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) in Vladivostok for demonstration in the exposition of the Eastern Economic Forum, 06.09.2018 (с) Yuri Smitiuk / TASS

    Further in the release of PJSC "Helicopters of Russia" it says:

    The first test flight of Ka-62 took place in May 2017. Over the past year, flight tests were conducted, which resulted in improvements to improve the reliability of the helicopter. In particular, the design of the body of the steering screw and the tail unit has been improved and strengthened, and a transmission of a standard design has been installed. Upon completion of all necessary work, the Ka-62 helicopter performed a series of regular and stable test flights in accordance with the test program, which confirmed its high performance and low fuel consumption compared to its competitors. During the final flight of the test program, the helicopter flew 260 km.

    "First of all, I would like to congratulate our employees, testers and designers - they perfectly know what a difficult project this project has. Nevertheless, we decided to continue it, and over the past year we have been able to make significant progress, both in terms of the construction of the helicopter and in determining specific directions for its use. All this is especially important taking into account the tasks to increase the segment of manufactured civil products and to preserve the production load of Progress, "said Andrei Boginsky, General Director of the holding company Helicopters of Russia.

    Until the end of 2018, it is planned to complete the factory tests of the Ka-62 and begin certification.

    PAK TA means : "Perspective of Airborne Complex of Transport Aviation"
    Is not an specicif airplane is only a generic name for a future undefined program

    Also the replacement is underway , An-26 by Il-112V , An-20 for Il-276 , Il-76 for Il-476 and also modernizated to Il-76 and An-124 is being modernized
    for opérate at least 40 or perhaps 50 years of life , so Russian Air Force is not in hurry for develop more airplanes rigth now.

    Without repeating the specifications of the
    TVS 2DTS but rather cover key points including some criticisms. Copy and pasted from various article's some already been mentioned.

    It will be able to land on short unprepared runways, water and snow.

    Polar Airlines and Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (UUAP, part of Russian Helicopters holding) have signed a contract for delivery of TVS-2DTS, the light composite single-engine turboprop airplane, based on Antonov An-2 design. The deal, which is part of a large-scale project to develop local air connections in Buryatiya and Yakutia regions, was announced by Russian Helicopters holding company.

    The first deliveries are scheduled for 2021. Within the timeframe between 2021 and 2025 UUAP plans to deliver NO LESS than 200 aircraft for the needs of regional aviation,” the official announcement reads.

    The production of the aircraft is expected to be launched by 2019. It is also not excluded that Russia’s State Transport Leasing Corporation (GTLK) may join in the contract

    The Rostec Corporation of Russia has launched manufacturing activity of TVS-2DTS light aircraft at the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (U-UAZ), a member of the Russian Helicopters holding company.
    It will be used for passengers, medivac, fire-fighting missions and for agricultural purposes.
    Future applications planned for the aircraft include light reconnaissance and light attack.

    According to Seryoznov, new aircraft from the first series will cost about $ 1.5 million, but the price is expected to fall to $1.2 million
    He said that the state demand for such an aircraft will stand at about 350 aircraft, due to be supplied to the Russian Armed Forces as well as state bodies dealing with air medical services and forest protection.

    In addition to the domestic market, the new aircraft will be supplied abroad, particularly to Mongolia, Indonesia and Malaysia and some other countries, which, to date, have already expressed an interest in the purchases of the new aircraft. According to his calculations, 700 An-2 biplanes are still used in Russia while, globally, this market figure is estimated at 4,500 units.

    Denis Manturov, minister of industry and trade, states that a budget of Rb220 million ($3.9 million) has been allocated for the project in 2018, to be followed by Rb230 million over the next two years.

    Production is scheduled to start at the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, which is more used to building Mil Mi-8 helicopters, by 2019, with an obligation to deliver "at least" 200 aircraft between 2021 and 2025, Russian Helicopters says.

    The government is willing to partially subsidise certification expenses to manufacturers of aircraft for local transportation, as well as expenses on implementation of projects for manufacturing preparation and certification," Manturov says.

    The prototype TVS-2DTS was presented at the MAKS-2017 airshow, where he was nicknamed the maize of the 21st century. For the first time this aircraft was raised in the air on July 10 this year. It is known that during this time the pilots flew more than 15 hours on it, including an 11-hour flight from Novosibirsk to the Ramenskoye airfield.

    Honeywell engine is on consumption 15-20% lower than any domestic engines of this class. Although they are considering full  domestic produced engine

    There was concerns of  the composite material not being strong enough but some people - although I don't think that this is out with Russian capabilities to make it strong enough.

    Sanctions wars between Russia and the US, hoping they will not affect its segment of aircraft-building. Moreover, SibNIA has an agreement with Honeywell on the localisation of the engine assembly in Russia in due course. At the moment, 30 engines have already been supplied by Honeywell to the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant for use in the TVS-2DTS. Under the terms of the agreement, local production will begin after the completion of deliveries of a certain number of engines.

    Russia by Western countries, SibNIA says it will consider beginning assembling a biplane entirely from local parts and components. However, that will result in increased fuel consumption as well as other problems during its use - yet again I don't think producing a domestic engine of this time to be out with Russian capabilities it's not exactly the most sophisticated type of engine if you take into account what Russia already produces.

    Although eehnie stated that
    " the strong competence of the helicopters is only increasing"
    You only have to look at the fact that Russian Helicopters holding company are the ones producing it which tells you that even they seen the potential in this category. As GarryB and others stated the price point is much cheaper than a helicopter of the similar specs as well distance and speed offered.

    I would also point out that a paying passenger on a local flight that flying in a fixed wing aircraft is much more comfortable than a noisy helicopter. I've flown in fairly small aircraft as well as helicopters and I would definitely say a fixed wing is less noisy. Also if there ever was a problem with the engine a pilot has a better chance of landing a fixed wing aircraft full of passengers than a helicopter full of passengers loooooool.

    On the point of UAV in Ukraine a UAV and the TVS 2DTS or An-2 serve two completely different roles and nobody in there right mind would flying such an aircraft in a known threat of any air defence. One of the key benefits of a UAV is the fact it's unmanned so therefore they can take more risks flying them near enemy airspace without the risk of loss of life.

    As GarryB stated back on another thread on the forum on 5th April 2018
    " the US feared the An-2 in North Korean hands as the first stealth aircraft... on a normal look down radar to avoid the massive reflection of the ground and things on the ground most pulse dopplar radars remove slow moving things from the display... if it displayed things moving at 10km/h you would have branches on trees and grass and people jogging... if they displayed things moving 100km/h you would have cars on motorways appearing, so look down radar used to have a speed limit where anything going slower would not be displayed... to be clear the slower targets would be detected, but they would not appear on the display... they would pretty much be removed because they were considered noise.

    The An-2 can be flown safely down to about 60km/h... so in a 50km/h head wind it will have a ground speed of 10km/h.

    This newer aircraft can probably do even better... there is no wire or strut supports that cause a lot of drag on biplanes"

    As I stated previously the north Koreans tested with radar
    An- 2 that they had replaced certain parts with wood to reduce signature and although it's a crude method it actually worked. There plans were to use them to paradrop special forces into south korea. Also I remember reading that the soviet army used An-2 to drop special forces onto big snow drifts the An-2 would fly very low and very slow and the troops would jump out without parachutes. Although I would imagine this still to be quite a daunting jump.

    I insulted not GarryB. I received insults.

    My first call to the moderators to stop the insults was missed

    If you are not insulting anyone then you have nothing to worry about.

    The basic problem other members have with you I believe is that some of your assumptions are unfounded.

    You claim a lack of orders between 1991 and 2001 suggest the An-2 design is obsolete and without purpose, yet Wiki suggests 1,700 were operationally used in Russia in 2015.

    Could it not be possible that the lack of orders are actually because they are fairly rugged but also simple machines that really don't require replacement every 5-10 years like a modern motorcar?

    The fact that it has not been in production for some time also makes new production unlikely of the old aircraft unless there was a real sudden demand to replace the older aircraft... which their isn't.

    Now a new Russian model might appeal to existing customers, though the US engine might be a stumbling block I am sure they can rectify that over time... US sanctions will likely make that necessary rather than desirable.

    Ukrane and the countries that are helping to Ukraine are losing millions in UAVs that are fairly smaller and have smaller signature, but still are shut down by manpads, not by bigger air defense systems.

    Yet, you are not suggesting UAVs and helicopters are obsolete?

    In the rest of the comment there is nothing that makes to increase the demand of this type of aircrafts that is very low. Unlikel in the case of the helicopters, the number of customers of new aircrafts around this size is very low in this century. The declining in the demand was very strong in the 1990 has has not been recovered in the last years, unlike for other aircrafts.

    The An-2 hasn't been in production for some time, so there was really no alternative if you already own one... you just spend more money keeping it running... even though it is likely a bit tired.

    Now they have a real replacement that actually has even better performance and the potential to do an even better job, so why would they not take the opportunity to replace the aircraft they currently have with a brand new aircraft.

    And the strong competence of the helicopters is only increasing:

    Helicopters are a different aircraft type... through the operational life of the An-2 the helicopter has appeared and gotten better, yet it has never really replaced the An-2 in a large variety of roles... an An-2 is simply cheaper to operate and safer too.

    PAK TA means : "Perspective of Airborne Complex of Transport Aviation"
    Is not an specicif airplane is only a generic name for a future undefined program

    I know... that is why I hoped they would expand it out into an engine related family of three types to cover the payload ranges of the An-22, An-124, and An-225... using two, four and six new engines...


    Also the replacement is underway , An-26 by Il-112V , An-20 for Il-276 , Il-76 for Il-476 and also modernizated to Il-76 and An-124 is being modernized
    for opérate at least 40 or perhaps 50 years of life , so Russian Air Force is not in hurry for develop more airplanes rigth now.

    They talk about the Il-112 as the replacement for the An-26 and the An-72, but they also refer to the Il-114 as the replacement as well... which is a little confusing. The An-12 will be replaced by the Il-276, and the Il-76 will be replaced by the modernised Il-476.

    I agree that modernisation of some aircraft will keep them operational for some time, but the requirements of mobility for the Army suggests lots of transports will be needed, including heavy transports and the current situation with the An-124 using a Ukrainian engine is not acceptable... a brand new engine in that power range could be used in a lighter aircraft to fill the space the An-22 left when it was withdrawn from service... and if you are going to design such an aircraft it would make sense to develop a family of aircraft sharing the same basic design and engines for the three weight classes I discussed above.

    This newer aircraft can probably do even better... there is no wire or strut supports that cause a lot of drag on biplanes"

    One of the articles about this new aircraft suggest it has no stall speed... if the engine fails then the pilot just pulls back hard on the stick and the aircraft slows and descends at a rate comparable to landing with a parachute till you hit the ground... in a high speed head wind the aircraft can actually fly backwards under full control.

    Garry B, there is nothing unfounded in my words. My words are just based in the reality, a reality that Im exposing with real data.

    The demand of this kind of aircrafts declined in the 1990s, but has been lower still in the 2000s and the 2010s. You can analize the sales of every case of aircraft that in Included, and you can see how all them failed commercially, not only in the size cathegory of the An-2/4/6, but in all the size cathegories between roughly 2.2 and 45,6 tons of Maximum Take-Off Weight. Not only that, we can see how the sales of some of the previously successful aricrafts, like the An-72/71/74 and the An-24/26/30/32, neither reached 50 aircrafts in the last 25 years.

    https://russianplanes.net/planelist/Antonov/An-72/74 (47 units since 1994)
    https://russianplanes.net/planelist/Antonov/An-24 (0 units since 1994, uncomplete but production of this variant was stopped before this year)
    https://russianplanes.net/planelist/Antonov/An-26 (0 units since 1994)
    https://russianplanes.net/planelist/Antonov/An-30 (0 units since 1994)
    https://russianplanes.net/planelist/Antonov/An-32 (34 units since 1994)
    https://russianplanes.net/planelist/Antonov/An-2 (0 units since 1994, uncomplete, included 15542 of the 15760 of European production and 0 of the 1027+ of Chinese production)
    Without concrete data for the Che-22.

    All it means not only a rejection of some concrete models based on their features, it means a rejection of the whole concept. And this is not only a trend of the Russian market, is also a worldwide trend.

    You talk about the remaining units of the An-2 in service. The source gives reference of 1526+17 still fliying active, but also gives reference of other 13999 that are not flying active. What happened with them? Obviously a big majority of them have not been purchasing neither new units of the supposed successors, neither of the An-2/4/6 (new or used), neither of other aircrafts in the size cathegories around. The whole concept is declining strongly in these size cathegories.

    You continue saying it has not been other alternative than to keep the old units running. This is not right. Here again, you have the list of local alternatives, but no-one succeeded. Also foreign options can be included:

    eehnie wrote:All the successors of the An-72/71/74 have been unable to reach 50 units produced completed (this is also the Mi-46/AHL size cathegory). The production of the An-148/158/178 is being stopped in Russia by lack of orders:

    Checking case per case the market reality that these models suffered and are suffering, my words are perfectly understandable.
    To note that the far bigger and far more expensive An-124 surpassed 50 units produced completed.

    Some people here still ignores the real data despite to have them in front of their face. They have their own narrative and nothing else matters.

    A new model is emerging in a rough environment of failed bids in at least the last 25 years. The US engine is not the main problem of this model in order to succeed. The whole situation of the market is instead. Its main problem is the lack of real demand today. Like the existence of units of L-410 in stock proves, the demand of this type of aircrafts is very very weak today, unlike in other cases like helicopters or aircrafts over 45.5 tons MTOW.

    I said clearly before that both auxiliary aircrafts and helicopters must avoid contested areas. Not totally possible still, but achievable in the following 2 or 3 decades.

    I said also clearly that I consider the concept of combat helicopter between the less modern modern armament of the Russian Armed Forces. I explained many times how I consider the concept of combat helicopter very likely will evolve toward unmanned technologies in order to avoid the high risks of the current use of manned combat helicopters.

    UAVs otherwise can be many times expendable material. It makes not them obsolete.

    The competence between aircrafts and helicopters (also aircrafts) is something like the competence between a PC and a MAC. Different systems to solve basically the same roles. In some cases aircrafts prove to be more effective, in other cases helicopters prove to be more effective. And this is the area where helicopters become dominators of the market.

    Cheaper... maybe by age in used aircraft markets.
    Safer... in doubt.

    The introduction of the Ka-60/62 in the same size cathegory of the L-410 and the new project can affect to both strongly. But still reverse engineering of the US engine can be interesting.

    The characteristics on the An-2 make it safer than a helicopter and much much easier to fly than a helicopter. One of the article's states that the TVS 2DTS will be even easier to fly than An-2. So by making something easier to fly gives less pilot error and the fact that in the event of engine problems Inc engine failure an An-2 can effectively slow down and land relatively safely were and helicopter well just hurls towards the earth againing speed and crashes with catastrophic consequences. I mentioned this before. I know which one I would rather be in lol.

    The fact remains that Rostec along with various ministries and regional airlines have seen the need for such aircraft and Russian Helicopters holding company are building it. And orders and interest has given. Do I think it will see the same numbers as
    An-2? no I don't but I do think it will exceed 50 (@eehnie). And time will tell. But my concerns on the engine and sanctions I hope that Rostec eventually fix this issue.

    And also not everything is based on numbers when it comes to success. They only only need to build enough to satisfy their investment and profit on the business side of things and it's customers only need enough to fulfil their needs. If Rostec come out of this in the profit and their customers are happy with the product it's a win win situation for all. And it's also likely the customer will return in the future and maybe be interested in other products. The su-33 for example was never produced in large numbers but fulfilled a niche role that was needed. Ukraines an-225 mriya one being built fulfils a niche role and gets used quite a bit around the world. Helicopters won't dominate this market because it's serves different role helicopters will continue to get better but so will aircraft and both will still serve their roles well the only thing really these two aircrafts are facing is if they will be manned or not.

    Pages after pages talking about nothing. I don't even know what you people are even arguing about anyway? Il-112? Plane isn't even flown yet. Il-114 is supposed to fly soon ish anyway. And there is no real detail other than "at least 100 of these cars are needed".

    Am I correct or we talking of something else?

    I think it's eehnie talking about An-2 being a shity plane so all russian plane are shit. And then someone made the mistake to answer him. So now he use red and blue colors to quote wiki pages and who knows what other fantastic (I mean literaly fantastic lol1 ) sources and no one reads it but the orange notification appears on the main page so most people click on it just to remove the orange notification rather than read what he says.
