    @George1

    @AMCXXL

    do you know what will happen with the 3 Il-76MD-90A special-purpose aircrafts? AWACS?

    well you have to distinguish between planes produced by Aviastar and planes delivered to the VKS

    the serian numbers starts in 0101 and end in 0302, this is 22 airframes

    0101 was static test airframe while 0106 and 0107 was cancelled

    then 19 airplanes have been produced

    you must discount the prototypes of Il-476 (s/n 0102), A-100 (s/n 0103) and Il-478 (s/n 0201)

    then you have 16 Il-476 produced

    the first of this 16 , s/n 0104 RF-78652 was sent to Taganrog ,perhaps for convert in A-100, however in 2021 reeturned to Uyanovsk and was painted in VTA colour, for the moment there are not information if this airplane has been transferred to VKS or will remain for trials in the factory

    the last unit 0302 roll out in 29-nov and srill is not transferred to VKS so you have 14 in the ranks of VKS today

    @George1
    how many are the modernized so far?

    Apart from the prototype (76746) that was transferred and is part of the "PAO-IL Aviastar" this is the 5º IL-76MD-M identified of the VKS
    Il-76/476 Military Transports - Page 14 Il-76m12Il-76/476 Military Transports - Page 14 Z0n87y10




    However, most of these photos are taken in Zhukovsky, which is where they are modernizing, so most of them have not yet entered service.

    I am only aware of two in the 81st Regiment at Ivanovo:
    RF-78837 (2020) and RF-76545 (2021)

    The other three, so far, have only been seen at Zhukovsky in the process of modernization and testing.
    RF-78788, RF-76765 and RF-76772
    However other Il-76MD-M was transfered to VKS last month, so it is possible that is one of these three

    Since very few photos have been coming out for a year due to the Special Military Operation, it is very difficult to ensure anything exactly

    RF-78667 s/n 03-02 in the air on 4th december.
    The 5th IL-476 this year, but it is not clear that it will be delivered before the end of the year
    The previous airplane was seen in the air on 3th november, so only 31 days difference, production  speed continues to increase

    New image of Orenburg with 27 Il-76, this confirms that the composition of the regiments is being changed to 3 squadrons. Previously there were about 22 planes in each regiment: 2 squadrons of 9 and a section of 4 planes from 224º LO (Flight Detachment with civil license with western standards to fly abroad).

    It also explains the reason for the  contracts for 13 and 14 airplanes, which give precisely 27 for 3 squadrons.
    The two aircraft for training in addition to the prototype, would come out of the first contract for 3, so the aircraft 01-04 RF-78652 will probably also be delivered to the VKS (since 2021 it is in Ulyanovsk)

    On the Il-78M-90A tankers, 10 were contracted, probably 1 for training and 9 for one squadron.

    I am inclined to think that each regiment equipped with new aircraft could have 2 squadrons of Il-476 and 1 squadron of dual use tanker/transport with Il-478

    Then Ulyanovsk will receive 18 Il-476 and the other 9 could go to Sescha that needs one Il-476 squadron and the other two are An-124

    yesterday at 12:37 p.m.
    We report on the state defense order!
    At the end of December, a branch of PJSC Il - Aviastar manufactured and handed over to the Russian Aerospace Forces a new military transport aircraft Il-76MD-90A, which completes the delivery of VTA aircraft this year.
    The enterprise has increased the volume of output, reaching the rate of production of five aircraft per year.
    Also, the specialists of the enterprises of PJSC "Il" performed work on the modernization of Il-76MD combat aircraft to the appearance of Il-76MD-M.

    This is the RF-78667 that made first fly on december 4.

    Then 5 airplanes Il-476 received in 2022, and also probably a couple of Il-76MD-M

    The previous airplane handed over on november 28th, 33 days of difference, so the current speed is 11 Il-476 per year
    We will see if the production chain can keep up with the deliveries of the last 3 months and get approximately one plane out each month.

    the tankers are built as tankers with their own contracts, while A-100 is a Il-76MD-90A transfered to Beriev to reform as AWACS

    this is the first of the order for 14

    first order of 3: 78651 (transformed into prototype A-100), RF-78652 (status unclear, at the end, probably also will be transfered to VKS), and RF-78653
    order of 13: RF-78654 to RF-78666
    order of 14: RF-78667

    then 15 Il-476 in VKS: 2 in Ivanovo 610º TsBPiPLS and 13 in Ulyanovsk 235º VTAP
