    Funding for Il-112V suspended



    Russia's Defense Ministry decided to suspend funding development work on the project light military transport aircraft Il-112V, told Aviaport several sources in aviation industry. As one of the participants in the program, "VACO to discontinue work. Solve the issue of extra-budgetary funding, but the amount of funds required fairly high. If the UAC would find a source of funding and decide on further implementation of the project, VACO will resume the program." The fact that the stop work on the Il-112V confirmed and two komplektatora plane, which has already received the appropriate letters from the military. "We received a letter, according to which we must stop the work. The product is 80% by the end of the year we should have everything completed. Now have to close the topic," - said the representative of one of the suppliers.

    IL-112V won conducted in April 2004, the competition of the Defense Ministry to develop a light military transport aircraft. Its competitors were the MiG-110 MiG, as well as projects EMZ it. Myasishchev - M-60LVTS and OAO Tupolev - Tu-136T. IL-112V powered TV7-117ST, staffed by low noise propellers AB-112, must fly at a cruising speed of 550-600 km / h for distances up to 6000 km (without load). Range with 6 tons of cargo - 1000 km.

    Model cars and preliminary design have been presented for the Defense Ministry in December 2004 and in May 2005, Commander 61 th Air Force Lt. Gen. Victor Denisov promised that the IL-112 will rise into the air in 2006, and in 2007 it appears the installer party. However, further implementation of the project has slowed down, despite the fact that the state armament program for the period 2011-2020 years had been prescribed the establishment of basic aircraft and modifications for special applications.

    The head Alexei Fyodorov, UAC in late 2009, told reporters that in 2009 the KLA was transferred to the active phase of the launch aircraft in the series. "Ends with the transfer of design documents in electronic form in 3D-models produced the first examples of technological equipment in the first set VASO stocks, assembly tools, have begun to produce the first aircraft parts," - commented on the then head of the KLA, the program is. He stressed that "the most active phase will be in 2010 - we have almost completely equipped factory and begin production of prototypes.

    However, in the creation of machines from the very beginning there was a problem of lack of the necessary traction engine. In April 2010 General Director of OAO Klimov, Alexander Vatagin told "Aviaport that" initially, even when issued the task to develop the engine had to be found in the 4 th power hp (laid 3 thousand hp - AviaPort). "The fact that the version for IL-112 too weak - it is a reality that exists. In this dimension to increase capacity - not an easy task, and due to easy upgrades of the engine to perform is simply impossible, will require very serious costs", - said A. Vatagin.

    In this komplektatory IL-112V claim that no serious technical problems in preparing the prototype for the first flight did not occur. In JSC "UAC" from the official declined to comment. A source at the KLA confirmed "Aviaport that from the Defense Ministry received a formal notice of suspension of funding programs. He did not comment on the reasons for the termination of funding, noting only that "all the questions - to the military." Asked about the possibility of extrabudgetary funds interlocutor Aviaport explained that "to begin to understand the amount of the order by the Defence Ministry said. The volume of the order was not formed until it is approved by the state armaments program through 2020.

    However, whether to attend the Il-112V to be delivered in the first half of this decade in the newly adopted state program of weapons - an open question. Interlocutor Aviaport familiar with the negotiations between the aircraft manufacturers and the Defense Ministry, argues that military authorities are not interested in buying this machine, at least in the coming years. Despite the fact that the need for armed forces in the plane to replace the decommissioned by the exhaustion of the resource Antonov An-26 is obvious, Defense Ministry prefers to talk about supply AN-124, AN-70 and IL-476.

    So in short, the government feels An-140 will be easier to adapt to a light transport and is happy to let Ilyushin go the way of the dodo.

    So IL-112V was replacing the An-26 in the military and now the gov cancelled it to fund the An-140 instead ?

    OK, I am confused...

    The Il-112V is designed to carry 6 tons 1,000km and will/would have been a twin engined turboprop aircraft?

    The Il-114T is a light transport aircraft designed to carry 6 tons 1,000km and is a low wing twin turboprop aircraft.

    Also confused with you Vlad, you seem upset that the Russian government might choose the An-140, an aircraft already in production and service, over the IL-112V which has not reached the prototype phase yet.

    Wouldn't it be a waste to continue developing the Il-112V when the An-140 is ready now?

    I would ask why the Il-114 isn't being purchased instead of the An-140, especially with it having its first flight in 1990, and there being plenty of military variants suggested including patrol, maritime patrol and strike, AWACS/AEW/Sigint, search and rescue etc etc.

    Russia, India mull joint plane manufacture

    At the next session of its cooperation commission with India to be held in New Delhi Monday, Russia will propose joint manufacture of Ilyushin-112 light transport jets.

    The announcement came from Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who heads the Russian delegation to the session.

    The Ilyushin-112 can carry a cargo of up to 6 tons.

    From:

    http://en.rian.ru/military_news/20090805/155736575.html


    MILITARY TRANSPORT AVIATION
    There are up to 300 transport aircraft in service with the Russian Air Force, including An-12 Cub, An-72 Coaler, An-22 Cock, An-124 Condor and Il-76 Candid planes.
    The An-12, An-22, and An-26 planes will be decommissioned in the near future, Zelin said.
    The An-26 plane will be replaced by Il-112B light transport aircraft with higher payload capacity and better fuel efficiency.
    "The first Il-112 is expected to make its maiden flight in 2011. The Air Force will order over 70 planes of this type," the general said.
    The An-12 will be most likely replaced by a medium-haul transport plane jointly-developed by Russia and India, Zelin said.
    The plane, with a 20-ton cargo capacity, is expected to go in service with the Russian and Indian air forces in about eight years.
    The An-124 and its modernized version, the An-124-100, will remain in service as a strategic heavy airlift transport aircraft. In addition, 12 Il-76 aircraft will be modernized to Il-76MD-90A starting in 2011.

    If India are interested in joint production of the Il-112 to replace their An-26s then I think the joint production of both the Il-112 and the MTA which will replace the An-12 make a lot of sense for both countries.

    The fact that the Il-112 is still a prototype just means it can be made to a slightly higher specification and with the latest avionics.

    "Klimov" has received the terms of reference for the development of the engine for the IL-112V
    http://bmpd.livejournal.com/551303.html


    In short, a more powerful version of the TV7-117ST engine will be required, *IF* the Il-112V is chosen over the An-140

    A more powerful engine would be useful anyway.

    I would expect the avionics of the Il-112 wouldn't be that much different to those needed for the MTA as they will both be doing very similar things with different payloads of course, but basically they will both be light transports hopefully able to operate from short strips in all sorts of weather.

    Some sort of standardisation should aide in making them cheaper and simpler to make and also cheaper to use and maintain.

    Ministry of Defence and the United Aircraft Corporation will contract to develop a light military transport aircraft Il-112B in 2014, the amount of the contract for the development activities (R & D) will be 7.9 billion rubles, said Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov.

    "The contract will be concluded in 2014. Contracted position left in the state defense order in 2014, there is a sum of 7.9 billion rubles for the completion of the development work on the Il-112V. Another contract with UAC - serial to supply aircraft - after we sign these works "- said Borisov, without specifying the date of completion of the ROC.

    Deputy Minister did not mention the exact amount of IL-112V, which will be delivered to the Air Force, but informed that "we are talking about a few dozen machines." "The first deliveries of IL-112V is scheduled to begin in 2017" - confirmed Borisov.

    As previously reported in the press-service of JSC "IL" for the Russian Air Force in JSC "Voronezh Aircraft Aircraft Association" to be built 62 such aircraft. They are designed to retrofit park light military transport aircraft and come nazamenu obsolete An-26. Planned to conclude the contract before the end of 2013.

    The first Il-112 military-transport aircraft will perform its maiden flight by November 1st 2016

    In case of signing the corresponding contract it is planned to perform the maiden flight of Il-112 light military-transport aircraft by November 1st 2016, ARMS-TASS reports with reference to CEO of Ilyushin Company (Il), Yuri Yudin.

    "We believe that in case of signing the contract soon, the first aircraft will perform its maiden flight in two years, in other words - by November 1st 2016. The work is in progress", - Yudin said.

    According to him, Ilyushin Company and Russian Ministry of Defense have both approved all the contract terms. The possibility of meeting the requirements of the performance specification has been confirmed, the CEO noted.

    "We are waiting for the Minister of Defense to take the final decision. We hope to sign the contract soon. We and our employees are all ready", - Yudin added.

    Il-112 aircraft will be manufactured by VASO (Voronezh, Russia); at present the first contract for delivery of 62 vehicles of the type to the Ministry of Defense is being discussed.

    According to ITAR-TASS, Ilyushin Company won the tender for development of light military-transport aircraft back in 2003. The first Il-112 turboprop should have been delivered to the Ministry of Defense in 2006, however, the implementation of this program was delayed multiple times and in 2010 the ministry cut off the project’s funding. Nevertheless, in late 2013 Deputy Minister of Defense, Yuri Borisov, stated that the deliveries of Il-112 aircraft will be started in 2017.

    Hopefully they will have taken advantage of the time delay to improve the design and update its avionics and systems and potential performance.


    This will be good for Illyusion... hopefully a few other aircraft designs left in limbo can be revived with new engines and new avionics... Il-106 I am looking at you.

    К 2018 году Россия должна получить два первых экземпляра нового легкого военно-транспортного самолета Ил-112. По информации «Известий», опытно-конструкторские работы и создание двух образцов для испытаний обойдутся в 8 млрд руб. Как напоминает газета, о возрождении проекта Ил-112 на днях объявил вице-премьер РФ Дмитрий Рогозин. Ранее предполагалось, что Россия приобретет у украинской госкомпании «Антонов» права на военно-транспортные модификации самолета Ан-140. Но длящиеся больше года переговоры пока не увенчались успехом, сообщил источник «Известий», близкий к компании «Антонов». По словам источника газеты, присутствовавшего 8 сентября на совещании по авиастроению в правительстве, контракт между Минобороны и АК имени С.В.Ильюшина на сумму 8 млрд руб. должен быть заключен в сентябре-октябре. Производством Ил-112, как ожидается, займется воронежское ОАО «ВАСО». Проект создания самолета Ил-112 был заморожен в 2010 году Анатолием Сердюковым (в то время – министром обороны).

    Two variants of the Il-112 will be delivered by 2018 according to Izvestia. An eight billion ruble contract will be signed in late September or October for
    the development of the two prototypes.

    The cancellation of the Il-112 in 2010 was another "gift" to Russia from the 5th columnist Serdyukov.

    As if he was doing nothing in favour of his patrons in the west. If there were no foreign elements in the story then he would not be a 5th columnist.
    But there were and he was in a hurry to do them all sorts of favours.

    After the Ukraine coup anyone going around and claiming that NATO is just some nice club that means nobody no harm is totally clueless. These imperial meddlers started civil wars in Yugoslavia and in Ukraine. They clearly have the intent and ability to buy off hordes of insiders in the countries that are in their cross-hairs. The US has only been doing this since before WWII. Think Iran and Guatemala. Think Nicaragua. Think Indonesia.

    Serdyukov not being an obvious sellout to the west, now that's thick and rich.

    Klimov Company started the development of production engine for light military-transport aircraft Il-112
    Russian Aviaton » Wednesday October 22, 2014 14:40 MSK

    St. Petersburg-based Klimov Company started development of next-generation production engine TV7-117SM for light military-transport aircraft Il-112, ITAR-TASS reports with reference to CEO of the company, Alexander Vatagin.

    "We have received the performance specification for this engine, which assumes its further development in compliance with the program for development of the transport aircraft for Russian air forces", - he said.

    Vatagin stated that the new engine matches its foreign analogues in terms of overall performance; moreover, some of its parameters are even better compared to the analogues.

    "The engine features modular design, which allows decreasing cost of maintenance and time needed to repair it. This engine is one of the most fuel-efficient ones in its class, it offers low emission level and the highest power-to-weight ratio (2500 h.p.) in its class", - the CEO added noting that “engines for other advanced aircraft may be derived from TV7-117SM”.

    Il-112 is a light transport aircraft, which is being developed in Russia. It should replace An-24 and An-26 aircraft. Military-transport version of the aircraft was developed for airlift delivery and paradrop of units of Russian airborne forces as well as cargo transportation. The jet may be operated from unpaved runways. According to Russian Ministry of Defense, Russian air forces need several tens of aircraft of the type.

    Ilyushin Company is going to complete development of Il-112V light military-transport aircraft by 2020, RIA Novosti reports with reference to Deputy Director General on Program Management of Ilyushin Company, Sergey Artyukhov.

    “The development should be completed by 2020,” Artyukhov said.

    The contract with Russian Ministry of Defense for development of the aircraft was signed in December 2014. At present the development of design documentation is being completed; VASO is starting preparation for launching production of the turboprop.

    In December Ilyushin Company reported that the first two Il-112V prototypes would be manufactured in 2016; they will be used for testing. The aircraft’s maiden flight is scheduled for the same year. About 30 Russian enterprises and around 50 suppliers will be involved in development of Il-112V.

    Il-112V is designed for transportation, airlift delivery and paradrop of light combat vehicles and weapons, cargo and troopers as well as commercial cargo transportation.

    Ilyushin Company was established in 1933 (part of United Aircraft Corporation). The company specializes in development, upgrade and testing of aircraft, preparation and support of aircraft production as well as provision of continued airworthiness of operated Il aircraft; it is cooperating with the Russia’s leading suppliers, scientific research organizations and the largest air carriers.

    So what they are talking about is a 6 ton payload aircraft to replace the An-24 and An-26 and An-32, so really you could probably get away with two versions of the Il-112, with one using standard engines of modest performance with a passenger model and a cargo model to replace the An-24 and An-26 respectively to make it cheap and effective in those roles, while an uprated version with more powerful engines for operations in hot and high environments to replace the An-32.

    The Il-112T transport model has already been proposed and the Il-112V (confusingly the Il-112V and Il-112B are the same aircraft with the B and V being the cyrillic/latin equvalents... ie B in cyrillic is a V in the English language.)

    In such a case what we would need is a new model Il-112 with a lot more power for taking off at high altitudes and hot conditions.. the engines in the other versions are about 2,500hp engines so something in the 4-5,000hp range would be useful or perhaps a light jet engine...

    Actually a jet version could also replace the An-72 in service... and of course when they are all entering service the An-140 can be used till they are worn out and then replaced with more Ilyusions too. Smile

    The company "Ilyushin" is working for the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation on the draft of the IL-112V. The plane carrying capacity 6 tons should replace the old An-26 aircraft.

    Russia's New Military Transport Plane Set to Make Its Maiden Flight in 2017

    The Ilyushin Il-112, Russia's brand new light military transport plane, is slated to make its maiden flight in 2017, said Yury Borisov, a Russian Deputy Minister of Defense.

    The aircraft's mass production is expected to be launched in 2019.

    The twin-engine turboprop plane, developed by the Ilyushin Aviation Complex (JSC IL), will be manufactured by the Voronezh Aircraft Production Association at an aircraft plant in Voronezh, located some 400 kilometers (250 miles) south of Moscow. It will replace the Antonov An-26.

    Russia's Ministry of Defense plans to purchase at least 35 Ilyushin Il-112 planes. Earlier, JSC IL said the company was ready to deliver more than 60 Il-112 aircraft to the military.

    The transport plane is designed to carry out missions in any geographic or weather conditions. It has a payload of 6 tons and can travel a maximum distance of 5,000 kilometers (3100 miles).

    The project, launched over a decade ago, was canceled in 2011, but the work on the Il-112 resumed in 2013.

    The news is related not to the total number of purchased aircraft, but those purchased for the first state acquisition program - the one up to 2020.

    Comments claim that the reason is likely due to delays in organizing the production of the aircraft; it may not be ready for production until 2019; which will make the acquisition of 62 aircraft until 2020 very unlikely and the plans will have to be changed to become more modest.
