Slyusar revealed the date during a visit to the Voronezh Aircraft Production Plant (Russian acronym VASO) in late October.
VASO will build the Il-112 instead of the An-140T, including the prototypes—a task that traditionally was undertaken by the Ilyushin design bureau’s experimental plant in Moscow city.
The aircraft remains in development as of this writing (2017) with an estimated first-flight date to be had sometime in 2017 (delayed from 2011).
The primary customer to date is the Russian Air Force where the Il-112 is to succeed the aging line of Antonov An-26 transports.
May 2017 - A first-flight for a prototype Il-112 is now scheduled for late-2017.
July 2017 - The Il-112 prototype remains in final assembly at VASO in Voronezh. Our Data Modules allow for quick visual reference when comparing a single entry against contemporary designs.
Power will be from 2 x Klimov TV7-117ST turboprop engines developing 3,500 horsepower each and driving six-bladed propeller units.
The Il-112V will be a completely Russian aircraft, including avionics and Klimov Boratyr turboprop engines, a higher-power version of the TV7-117, already flown on the Il-114 and Mil Mi-38. Earlier this year VASO and other Russian companies complained that they could not complete new An-148s because of late delivery of parts from Ukrainian vendors, notably the landing gears being supplied by Dnepropetrovsk-based Yuzh Mash, whose economic situation worsened during Ukraine’s economy downturn.According to the Russian media outlet “Izvestia” the example “78650” is a flying testbed for a heavily modified Il-76MD-90A variant equipped with “” How the aircraft can evade radars and remain invisible is unclear, anyway, the experimental Candid can be distinguished from the baseline IL-76MD-90A by the presence of an opto-electronic station mounted on the lower nose section of the aircraft and for the “President-C” system used designed to protect aircraft from MANPADS (Man-Portable Air Defense Systems) and IR (heat-seeking) missiles by laser and radiofrequency/electronic jamming of the missile guidance.The aircraft is also equipped with advanced avionics, modernized communication suite and flight navigation system as well as a new collision warning system for low-level flying. special operations aircraft (such as the MC-130s or the C-17 Globemaster IIIs) have been doing for some decades.The Ilyushin Il-112 is being developed by Russian industry for the light transport market (namely military in its scope).The design phase of the program is being handled by the storied Ilyushin concern with manufacture to be headed by Voronezh Aircraft Production Association.
VASO is currently still building An-148 regional airliners, against orders from the Ilyushin Finance Corp. Earlier, Slyusar said that VASO will continue producing the Ilyushin Il-96 widebody airliner at rate of two to three per year until 2023.
