MOSCOW, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Defense Ministry and United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) in 2014 would conclude a contract on the development of the Ilyushin Il-112B light military-transport plane, RF Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov told reporters on Friday.
“The item under the contract is left in the 2014 state defense order, it specifies a sum of 7.9 billion rubles to complete the design and development work on Il-112B,” Borisov said. “Another, serial contract with the UAC is on the delivery of planes, we will sign it after the work is complete,” he said, declining to specify the development work completion date.
The deputy minister did not say how many Il-122B planes exactly would be delivered to the Air Force, but noted that “it’s a few tens of aircraft.” “The deliveries of the Il-122B planes are planned to be started in 2017,” Borisov said.
The press service of the JSC Ilyushin (OJSC IL) - the developer of Il-112B, previously reported that 62 such planes were to be built for the Russian Air Force at the JSC Voronezh Aircraft Production Association (VASO). They will replace the outdated Antonov An-26 planes in the fleet of light military-transport planes.
