    The condition of the An-178-100R prototype. The Ukrainians promise that it will begin test flights before the end of the year

    These foaming at the mouth clowns have done basically nothing after 2014. That prototype is a relic.

    Ukria has totally failed in delivering a single An-178 to Peru and Peru is imposing fines on Ukraine for breach of contract.

    The An-178 is a defective design that required modifications that Ukria could not handle.   So the fact that Antonov was
    move to Ukria from Russia did not actually give Ukria the capability to manufacture aircraft as we have seen over the last
    30 years.

    The wing span and area was changed to compensate for inadequate performance which caused a fail in the load distribution
    requiring 1.32 tons of weight to be placed behind the crew cabin. So the aircraft cannot be tweaked and needs to be
    redesigned and built basically from scratch.

    They would be better off ordering the Brazilian C-390 I think.

    In February 2012 Peru expressed interest in the C-390.
    At $50M, perhaps Peru couldn't afford it.

    There's always a sucker

    Plenty of suckers out there thinking they can get something cheaper by shopping around... Ukraine was a new US ally and it isn't the first plane they have made... actually it this plane along with the An-70 are the first few planes they haven't made...

    Most of the planes they were making they were making with Russia so while they remained partners with Russia there was a good chance these planes would be developed and enter into service...

    But then the Ukraine listened to the promises of the west and their greed cost them everything.
