    Il-76MD-90A apparently costing a lot more then planned. So contract renegotiated, looks like same money but fewer planes:

    Судя по имеющейся информации, теперь российские вооруженные силы получат 28 новых транспортников, вместо 39. ..С другой стороны, наладить качественное и быстрое производство может экспорт реанимированного Ил-76 — уже ведутся предконтрактные переговоры с двумя государствами, заинтересованными в приобретении самолётов этого типа. В «Рособоронэкспорте» при этом рассчитывают поставлять за рубеж по 4−5 самолётов в год. https://regnum.ru/news/polit/2291941.html
    11 planes less- with 41 IL-76MD-M, it seems the difference won't be felt by the AF. Some countries may also trade in their IL-76MDs which could also be modernized, should Russia ask for them.

    That is for the first contract. There will be more in the 2021-2025 budget.

    exactly. First contract was for SAP2020 now next one will be signed. Will be smaller though. Maybe the 10 additional to bring the number back to initial.

    These transport planes are much needed.

    If the situation in Ukraine changes & relations improve, the AN-70 project for Russia may be given a 2nd chance. Ordering some will decrease the need for so many Il-76MD-90A.
    In the context of an aging fleet of IL-76 and the actual closing of the An-70 program, the program to create the Il-76MD-90A has become more important to the Russian aircraft industry in the medium and even long term. https://in.rbth.com/economics/2014/11/17/modernised_il-76_set_for_take_off_39773 Russia's Ministry of Defense had planned to purchase 60 An-70 planes by 2020. They would have paid approximately $67 million apiece. Russia currently uses the Il-476 .. as an alternative to An-70. https://sputniknews.com/military/201503021018945329/

    That actually would be quite stupid move and i dont really see that happening personally.

    Cost did rise, not unexpected tbh. Tho it will probably go abit lower as production goes further.

    The RF'll probably never get their ~$100M already invested back from Ukraine, & the Russian engine maker will earn more if AN-70s are ordered. It would be stupid to drop it in favor for extra more expensive Il-76MD-90As! Other AFs use both C-17s/IL-76s & C-130Js/A-400Ms; the PLAAF uses Y-20s//IL-76s along with Y-8/9 & is developing Y-30. https://www.sinodefenceforum.com/chinas-transport-tanker-heavy-lift-aircraft.t197/page-302#post-456509

    They are never going to get the money spent on the An-70 back, that is certainly true, but all the crap they have been getting regarding Antonov designs including servicing and support the last thing they should do is try to revive that company or that country.

    The Ukraine is a neighbour but at the end of the day the best Russia can hope for is for the west of the Ukraine to turn totally west and ignore Russia while those areas that don't want that can look to Russia... but many of these areas are not the best friends some people assume they are... just because they don't like the government in Kiev does not mean they are pro Russian or Russia friendly... or even interested in being friends with Russia for anything but selfish reasons.

    They are developing a new aircraft to replace the An-12 in the 20 ton payload class with a twin engine design. A larger four engine model would be an ideal solution to fill the gap left by the An-70... It will take time but will be bullshit proof, which is more than one could say about any model of the An-70 that survives.

    The Il-76 is more expensive but it is a larger longer ranged aircraft too... and all that extra money is being spent in Russian factories... so it is money well spent by the Russian military.

    Extra airframes means economy of scale in terms of spares and support...

    ...........

    There's one problem with An-70 that a lot of people overlook for some reason: it is not good. Not good at all.

    Regardless of money invested it remains inferior pile of junk.

    Actually it looks rather better than the A400M to be honest, but not western country will buy it over the A400M or C-130 super herc because the maker is practically bankrupt and the country the maker comes from has no money to buy any itself, so you have to carry the design yourself... too much risk.

    Especially with financially unstable Ukraine.
