    Add a IFR probe to the Be-200 and all is fine.

    The A-40 was also intended as a successor for the Il-38.

    Yes, but in fact what I was arguing is that nowadays you do not need a plane like the A-40, designed for the needs of the USSR

    To operate in the Baltic and in the Black Sea , or even in the Japan Sea (in the vicinity of Vladivostok, south Sakhalin or south Kuriles) is not necessary IFR probe , nor that a plane be larger than a Be-12.

    Moreover, in the area controlled by the Northern and Pacific fleets, the anti-submarine task is carried out by Tu-142 and Il-38
    And also for the SAR task, it is not necessary a seaplane because seas of Kara, Barents, Okhotsk, Bering, etc ... are frozen in winter and even in summer the waters are not suitable for a hydroplane most of time, and the water is too cold for a person to survive to be rescued

    This is the best of seaplanes such as Be-200

    The Be-200 is a great airplane because can be operated in a large country like Russia with a lot of recondite places without aerial infrastructure , where the Be-200 can "take land" not only in the sea , also at inland lakes and rivers

    In fact the main customers probably could be the Border Guard  in adition to the current main operator, the Ministry of Emergencies
