In total, for 2019 “Aviation Complex named after SV Ilyushin ”concluded about 15 contracts for the implementation of the components of the ROC to create an updated transporter. The cost of the main one, concluded with EMZ them. Myasishchev and providing for the development of the technical project An-124-100M before the end of 2020, is 830 million rubles.

Based on the data specified in the terms of reference, indicators such as weight, size, speed and altitude of the modernized Ruslan will remain the same. But the life of the aircraft will be increased to 50-60 years.

    At the same time, the Ukrainian Antonov Design Bureau emphasizes that it is their bureau that owns all copyrights for the aircraft ...

    The question is not what the future aircraft will be called. And in what will be its filling. The use of foreign components should be completely excluded! Or has life still not taught anything to our "leaders" from "business"? After all, the answer is unequivocal: only FULL independence from import will allow our manufacturers to establish or continue production in any case, even if TOTAL sanctions are imposed against the Russian Federation.
    I am generally struck by the shortsightedness of industry leaders. After all, sooner or later, the Russian Federation will block (under the pressure of America) the opportunity to buy components. Everything goes to this. The Yankees DO NOT know how to compete honestly. Where it is not possible to beat competitors with better or cheaper goods, the Yankees connect administrative reserves - banditry, various "color revolutions", international terrorism, illegal sanctions, simply - WARS (under various pretexts) ... But the state’s most important administrative resource has always been structure. Therefore, all the talk about the "free hand of the market" is nothing but a FALSE. Almost all major US companies have a state in one way or another. In general, state structures and business in this country are closely intertwined - all these "congressmen" and other "state figures" come from big capital structures and return there (after the expiration of their term of office or defeat in the "elections"), and break through there is NO OPPORTUNITY to this “elite” from the bottom or from the outside (anticipating the objections of the opponents, I can only say one thing - if there are any, then it is ONE, ie - EXCLUSION, which only confirms the RULE). And this whole SYSTEM, built on lobbyism, is called a simple word - CORRUPTION, elevated to the rank of law. In plain language, it is a corrupt state.
    But back to our article - the name of the aircraft does not matter. It will be called "Il" or "An" ... What's the difference? The main thing is that the plane begins to fly. and so that it contains only DOMESTIC components. And for their mass production, state intervention is needed, because "business" the beginning of "activity", which does not promise an INSTANT gesheft or obtaining SUPER INCOME, all this is not interesting .... Therefore, if you look at the situation in the country from this angle as a whole, then all these "businesses" are nothing more than DEFLECTING RESOURCES FROM COUNTRY. Everything else is lyrics ....

    More than 1 billion rubles not for the modernization of the aircraft, but only for the preparation of the plan ???
    The modernization of the aircraft itself will pull another 20 billion?

    Will it be the most expensive transport plane in the world or not?

    Voiced - it means only words. Not a contract is written, but just a word.
