Replying to Garry from a post in the naval industry thread.
there is no incentive to rebuild Antonov for instance as that is only competition that no one wants.
Russia does not need to "rebuild" Antonov and and Antonov is not dangerous competition.
Russia just need the name and the IP. The infrastructure already exist in Russia.
Antonov is an extremely important name for Russia and for the Soviet Union. It is Soviet and Russian legacy, not Ukrainian one.
Antonov will be a part of UAC as it is Ilyushin, Yakovlev or Tupulev. They can put a new design bureau in Moscow (or in Ulyanovsk) for it and if needed or convenient cooperate with Ilyushin design bureau
(and/or with new entities outside the UAC like the Ural Civil Aviation Plant
, that build the Let-L410 and designed the Ladoga and Baikal aircraft)
If in Moscow they can possibly also re-employ the russian engineers working the Boeing Design Center
Boeing until march 2022 employed about 1000 engineers in Moscow and had a total of 1100 employees (I don't know ofhow many of them engineers) in Kiev.
In soviet union the plants were not owned by the design bureau, anyway.
And when they release the new cargo planes models they can have some of them branded Ilyushin, some Antonov and maybe also some Tupulev (according to which design bureau made the lion's share of work).
The new (Moscow or Ulyanovsk based
) Antonov design bureau could also possibly work on a cargo plane of 10 to 12 tons of payload (as the Alenia C27J, about double the payload of the il-112), to be build in Moscow region or in Samara.
Or they could also support the Ural Civil Aviation Plant to design and build a fully russian replacement of the let L-410.
Even the Ladoga could be renamed as An-142 and the Baikal as An-4 (just an example).
(E.g Airbus renamed the bombardier C-series into airbus A-220).
As far as Antonov plants and infrastructure in Kiev and Kharkov, if (and only if) those regions will be integrated into Russia proper as wel
l, they will also be included in the UAC umbrella (not as Antonov plants, but as Kiev Aircraft plant and Kharkov Aircraft plant).
Later they can take part in aircraft repairs and in manufacturing of aircraft parts to be delivered to other russian plants. (As an example in the recent past Kharkov Aircraft plant cooperated closely with Aviakor in Samara). Finally if there will be the necessity for Russia those plants could also be used for final assembly of aircrafts (of course after properly modernising them).
It is not like there will not be work for Russian aircraft plants now that they are not going to buy western planes anymore. There will be the opposite problem. Not being able to produce enough planes (especially if we add also the need of Bielorussia, Novorossia and Malorossia to those already planned)
