Russian Military Confirms Plans for IL-112 Light Transport Plane
Russia will sign a contract on the development of the Il-112V light transport plane next year.
The development of the twin turboprop aircraft, designed to carry six tons of cargo to a range of 1,000 kilometers (620 miles), was canceled in 2011, but revival of the Il-112 program was early this year.
The Ilyushin aircraft maker earlier announced plans to build 62 Il-112s to replace the aging fleet of An-26 military transport aircraft in service with the Russian air force. ria.ru
