Revival of "Antonov": Ukraine is proud of the first "import-substituted" An-178


A little over a year has passed since work began on the creation of a Ukrainian short-haul transport An-178 for the Peruvian police. This aircraft became the first sign in the process of revival of the Antonov State Enterprise and the aircraft industry in Ukraine as a whole, the Ukrainian portal Defense Express proudly notes.


This aircraft should become the first production aircraft and put an end to a long interruption in the production of products by Ukrainian aircraft manufacturers. The aircraft (serial number 006) with a carrying capacity of 18 tons is considered conditionally import-substituted, since it completely lacks components from Russia. Moreover, it has equipment from Western countries.

In November 2019, the State Enterprise GHVP "Spetstechnoexport" (part of the SC "Ukroboronprom") and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the South American country signed a contract for the supply of one An-178. At that time, the Antonov State Enterprise already had a certain groundwork for the aircraft (separate parts of the wings and tail unit), but the fuselage had to be built from scratch.


Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, in 2020, Antonov employees completed the slipway assembly of the fuselage and proceeded to the process of saturating the aircraft with various internal systems. For $ 9,6 million, Motor Sich JSC ordered two D-436-148FM by-pass turbojet engines for it.


On December 29, 2020, Antonov State Enterprise and the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, in the presence of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, signed a contract for a period of four years for the manufacture of three An-178s for the Ukrainian military. The transfer of the first aircraft under this contract is scheduled for 2023, after receiving the Type Certificate for the An-178-100R, the publication concluded.

      And why did you suddenly decide that this information is true, and not a fantasy of the Sumerian empire ???? Two months ago, for example, there was such information on this contract with Peru

    I'm wildly sorry, but if this "the first serial An-178" , what was riveted on "Antonov" at the end of last summer ?? belay

    SE "Antonov" assembled the first production aircraft An-178 without Russian components (all thanks to import substitution)
    “This is the first aircraft assembled without a single part from Russia. With the beginning of the Russian aggression in 2014, we have lost not only the sales market, but also the market for the supply of important components, ”said Los.

    According to him, Antonov carried out the design work to replace Russian components at his own expense. Two-thirds of the new An-178 aircraft consists of equipment from American corporations. A third - from Ukrainian parts. "

    PS And as an airplane it can be considered "conditionally import-substituted" if "two-thirds of it consists of equipment from American corporations. One-third of Ukrainian parts." belay

    1. Some design developments remained, in spite of the fact that the western “partners” must be supposed to have “cleaned up” the most interesting things there, and many smart people have moved to the west or to the Russian Federation.
    2. A piece production will not pay off, and for mass production an order for at least several tens of pieces is required.
    3. It is clear that Ukraine is not able to produce everything, and cooperation with Western aircraft manufacturers means dependence, because neither Boing, nor Lockheed Martin, nor Airbus, and no one else will tolerate competition.
    4. TsAGI in the USSR was one, and there is no other in Ukraine.
    5. There are two options - to sell to someone at a higher price and it is possible to keep production, or to condescend to small-scale production of light aircraft and helicopters such as the Belgian Dynali, while maintaining the brand and the appearance of independence.

    An article on the website of Peruvian journalists dedicated to this aircraft.
    This An 178 in the article is called phantom (invisible).

    ... the Peruvian government suspended the sale and purchase agreement of the aforementioned aircraft, which was the least it could do as it is illogical to acquire something that does not have the appropriate international certification ...

    In the case of the An-178, everything could really be made more transparent by applying the Law on State Contracts, indicating anti-corruption provisions in the sales contract with the participation of the Peruvian Air Force, than in the framework of military-technical cooperation between Peru and Russia there are specialists, trained in the Eurasian state, who know these aircraft very well and speak Russian.

    The scandal with the An-178, as well as around the MI8 helicopters, makes us think that an international scheme of committing the crimes of bribery and collusion in broad daylight is being built between Peru and Ukraine. In the case of the South American country, this crime is twofold, since the participants in this criminal act not only shift their taxes to the Peruvian population ... but also finance the fascist and neo-Nazi political leadership, according to the alternative press, which reports on what is happening in the self-proclaimed republics of Luhansk and Donetsk, located in eastern Ukraine.

    In general, the entire article is worth reading. It is reasonably translated from Spanish by an automatic translator (there is a button at the top right).

    If they produce airplanes, that's good.

    But what about a bunch of articles in 3 years that Antonov is all dead?

    It's like Obama tore the Russian economy to shreds.

    May God grant your calf our wolf to eat.

    Bravura marches performed by Ukrainian officials have always ended with an international scandal and a quiet cut of budget funds
