Peru saw through the deception with the Ukrainian An-178 and thought about purchasing the Il-112


The Peruvian government has suspended the execution of a 2019 contract between the Ukrainian company Spetstechnoexport and the Peruvian Ministry of Internal Affairs for the purchase of one An-178 transport aircraft for $ 65 million, the Federación de Periodistas del Perú writes.


Some time ago, in Lima, Kiev was suspected of untidiness and began to take an interest in the indicated aircraft. In June, it turned out that the aircraft was still at the assembly stage and that there was no talk of any certification. In June, Ukraine's Ambassador to Peru, Igor Tumasov, confirmed that the aircraft under construction did not yet have any airworthiness certificate, and in September Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy fired the diplomat.

After that, the corruption scandal surrounding General Alfredo Vildoso Rojas, who was under investigation, who was the head of the police aviation and who was personally present at the signing of the contract, received a second wind. The general is currently in prison by the decision of the First Investigative Court of Callao in connection with an open corruption case related to the purchase of 35 thousand masks and other equipment to ensure the biosecurity of police aviation employees during the COVID-19 pandemic, worth about $ 558,5 thousand.

It should be noted that the original Ukrainian An-178 consists of a third of Russian components. But the Antonov State Enterprise decided to replace them with parts from Western countries and to create a virtually new aircraft by the end of 2020. Then fly a certain number of hours and re-certification. After that, transfer the plane to Peru in 2021. Moreover, the Peruvians immediately transferred an advance of $ 19,2 million.

But the Ukrainians will definitely not meet the specified deadlines, since in order to obtain an international certificate (not to be confused with the domestic one), you need to have 5 ready-made prototypes of the aircraft and a total flight time of about 2 thousand hours. Moreover, the State Corporation "Ukroboronprom" announced that Peru will become a "testing ground" for the updated An-178. This left the Peruvians in shock.

Peru is a highland country that is interested in expanding its aircraft fleet. However, she does not need an uncertified aircraft, which could be unsafe. The purchase of this aircraft was not dictated by the national interests of Peru and did not take into account some of the rules of Peruvian legislation. It seems that Kiev has developed an international corruption scheme. But in Lima they saw through this deception and are now thinking about purchasing the Il-112 from Moscow, which is a real alternative to the An-178.

    To build, you need "brains", and only managers are left in Ukraine. Therefore, sales are ahead of construction. When the Peruvians buy our ILs, then we will be delighted.

      It takes brains to build

      They hide their brains under a saucepan so as not to splash when they jump. laughing

    I don’t really understand why the Peruvians should buy An-178 or Il-112, which is also not completed, like the Ukrainian plane, when you can buy a C-27 and not buzz ...

      Everything is simple to the banal, people take Hyundai or Lada and not Maybach for the same reason. Spartan is the most expensive of the "classmates", more expensive than the Spanish CASA C-295 by about 20%, the rest are even cheaper.

          Apparently they preferred to wait a little, perhaps they remember about the legendary Chinese quality. And to fly there in the mountains, the conditions are difficult, apparently they preferred to wait a little. At the end of last year, 3 and 4 copies of the Il-112 were built, since then I have not specified, but I believe that 5 aircraft will be recruited and certification is not far off.

              I think yes, since they are going to release. Or do you think everything was left as before?

    We, too, in the analogy, ukram is done, already encountered. Let's run first! So after all, you can't run, you must first do this and that .. I order - do it, then we'll figure it out and sell it. So what has been done will work? I told us to report upstairs.
    And in bucaal two or three months after the essentially stupid process: How could you not have foreseen? You cannot be relied upon in this matter! We now look like ypa kami, all because of you!
    - So you were told that in the beginning you need to do in this order, otherwise it does not work! Specifically for you! - Well, okay, so you reported to me incorrectly. Now think about how to fix it, because you are to blame.
    A curtain.
    And to these bureaucratic hoopoes, when you give the layout why and how to do it, you lay it out, chew it like a juvenile debilam - they start to turn off the world with their brains, even visually on high-ranking muzzles you can see.
    So we are all one to one. By the way, the Il-112 is also not present in the series of 5 aircraft, and 2000 flight hours is not in a month, to hurray. wink

    IL 112 and it is even longer unfinished. Which with our rulers will not go into a series of 100 years.

    ... and now they are thinking about purchasing the Il-112 from Moscow, which is a real alternative to the An-178.

    The first carries 20 tons. cargo, the second - 5 tons. What is the alternative, and ... the author? Moreover, the Il-112 made only one flight 2 years ago and did not even pass factory tests.
