    Antonov An-148 Prospects Boosted by Russian Military Order

    The Russian ministry of defense (MoD) has awarded United Aircraft (UAC) a firm order for 15 Antonov An-148 twinjets, according to UAC president Mikhail Pogosian, speaking at the Paris Air Show. The contract is worth Rouble 18 billion ($550 million). The delivery schedule calls for one aircraft this year, eight in 2014-2015 and six in 2016-2017. The Russian government has previously expressed a need for 130 jetliners for various government agencies. This requirement includes 59 An-148s, according to minister for industry and trade Denis Manturov.

    The MoD order is highly profitable for aircraft maker VASO, a UAC factory in Voronezh, with some 25 percent margin over the manufacturing expenses. This contract, along with another for six Il-96-300s for VIP transport, is meant to help the plant establish cost-effective production. VASO lost Rouble 1.2 billion ($36.5 million) in the past year, despite a rise in revenues to Rouble 8.8 billion ($268 million). Last year the factory delivered only one An-148-100EA to the Russian government’s special air detachment (a second is due by year-end) and one An-148-100EM to the Ministry for Emergencies (a second is due this summer), along with three An-148-100Es to Ilyushin Finance (IFC), which subsequently placed them with the airline Angara.

    Speaking to AIN at Paris, Alexander Roubtsov, general manager at IFC, said the MoD order “will help gear-up type production at the Voronezh plants, from which commercial buyers will only benefit.” The military order will enable VASO to invest in advanced manufacturing methods and equipment, and to master lean, resource-saving technologies. IFC holds orders for 34 An-148s, and another commercial buyer, Savings Bank, has ordered 10. Thus far, 11 aircraft have been delivered, split between the two.

    Eighteen An-148s are currently in service (plus two extended-fuselage An-158s), counting both Russian- and Ukraine-built examples, and to date they have carried two million passengers, according to Antonov. The design house is shaping the An-148-300MP maritime patrol version with 10-hour loitering capability and armed with anti-ship missiles, unguided rockets, depth charges and 23-mm cannon pods. This version is aimed at Russian and Ukrainian MoDs and is also on offer to India. In addition, Antonov is developing the An-178, a ramp-equipped airlifter based on the An-148 and able to carry a 16-metric-ton payload 3,800 km. At the Paris Air Show, Antonov president and general designer Dmytro Kiva said the first prototype is under construction for an anticipated maiden flight next year.

    I think VIP Transport but some of the An-148 might be converted to ELINT/SIGINT role.

    The main competition between the Il-112 and An-148 is to replace the light transports like the An-26, An-32 and An-72 in Russian military service.

    These are light transports below the An-12 in weight/range performance.

    The Russian/Indian MTA will replace the An-12.

    Not exactly.

    The competition is between Il-112 and An-140 (cargo version) for the 5 Ton payload class.

    An-148 ( 12 T payload for a cargo version) is in a different league and should be considered more as a replacement for An-72.

    The MTA is even heavier (18 T payload) and is a true replacement for An-12.

    Don't know why they would be cooperating with a Canadian company considering how anti Russian the Canadian government seems to be...

    Just looks like an ordinary light twin engine aircraft to me.

    Doesn't seem like Russian's are learning much lessons.  Maybe they are ignorant or maybe just hoping that they won't get affected by these sanctions business.  But yeah, if I was running a Russian business, the last place I would be looking for JV work would be Canada, US or most of EU.  I would be instead looking at Asia, european countries like Serbia, or Brazil for jv.

    The 16-seat Rysachok aircraft to perform its maiden flight in the first quarter of 2015
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday October 9, 2014 15:30 MSK

    The maiden flight of 16-seat light multi-role Rysachok aircraft is scheduled for the first quarter of 2015, Interfax reports with reference to a source close to the military-industrial sector.

    "At present five Rysachok aircraft are under construction: three of them will feature a 16-seat configuration and the rest two ones – 10-seat configuration. The first 16-seat liner will perform its maiden flight in the first quarter of 2015", - the source said.

    According to him, at first the aircraft will undergo flight development tests and then the certification testing will be started. "Almost all the results of certification tests passed by the 10-seat version of the aircraft will be recognized for testing of 16-seat version as well", - the source added.

    Commenting the information that Russian Ministry of Defense issued a performance specification for the aircraft in spring, he said: "The Ministry did issue the performance specification and now it is being considered by the enterprise, because it will have to use own funds for development of this vehicle. The ministry is not going to finance the project".

    It was reported earlier the Rysachok may be operated from unpaved runways with a soil strength of about 5,5 kg/sq.cm. Russian air forces plan to use Rysachok as a reconnaissance and patrol aircraft. The airliner is powered by М601F engines (Н80 for production vehicles) having a power of 750 (770) h.p. It is able to carry up to 10 passengers (production version will be fitted with 16 seats). Its range is 2000 km; cruise speed varies from 250 to 400 km/h.

    As the Voronezh plant complete the MoD's An-148 orders, will those be the last Antonov designed aircraft that will be procured by Russia?

    As the Voronezh plant complete the MoD's An-148 orders, will those be the last Antonov designed aircraft that will be procured by Russia?

    I would expect so... the An-70 is dead for Russia, while the An-72, An-26/32, An-22 are all planned to be replaced in the future... they might upgrade a few AN-124s and might even build some new ones, but the family of new transport aircraft they are funding development of includes an 80, a 120-150, and a 250 ton payload class aircraft which clearly will replace the An-22 and An-70 (80), the An-124(120-150), and An-225 (250) respectively.

    the An-22 is useful, the An124 has been very useful and an An-225 will be more and more useful as the Russian space agency starts working with bigger and bigger rockets.

    Odds are they might only make 3-5 250 ton payload class aircraft though india and china might want some too... there would certainly be a world market for maybe 10-15 such aircraft.

    the 120-150 ton payload aircraft would be very useful for a variety of new roles with their new mobile armour units so they might plan for 80+ aircraft in this class for domestic use only... with world wide demand pretty high too as it is a useful weight capacity.

    the 80 ton payload aircraft would be even more popular as a C-17 alternative without the horrendous cost and will likely be bought by the VDV as an An-70 replacement as well as the Russian air force.

    In addition to those three related designs, there will be the Il-476 in the 60 ton payload class and a future possible replacement, the MTA developed with India as a replacement for the An-12, and the Il-114 and Il-112 or just two variants of the Il-112 to replace the An-26 and An-32... and finally the Ryachok to replace the venerable An-2.

    A jet powered Il-112 or Il-114 would replace the An-72 in the role of 6 ton payload high speed jet if the MTA is deemed too big, but I think something could be worked out.
