LE BOURGET (France), June 18. /TASS/. Russia’s arms exporter Rosoboronexport has received bids from foreign customers for the purchase of 25-30 military transport aircraft Ilyushin Il-76MD-90A, head of the company’s delegation to the Paris Air Show at Le Bourget Sergey Kornev told reporters on Thursday.
"We have already received bids for 25-30 IL-76MD-90A planes - the aircraft’s military-transport, tanker and airborne early warning versions," he said.
The bids will be possibly satisfied in the future after the manufacturing plant Avisatar SP develops the planes’ steady production.
The representative of the Russian delegation at Le Bourget told TASS that it is planned to increase the annual production of the Il-76MD-90A planes from the current two-three aircraft to 10-12 aircraft by 2018-2019 and to 18 - by 2021.
In 2012, the Russian Defence Ministry ordered 39 Il-76MD-90A planes, which are a heavy upgrade of the known military-transport plane Il-76. The contract cost is some 140 billion roubles ($2.62 billion).
