    Russia needs to develop completely new areas, such as unmanned cargo, and later civil aviation. The vast expanses of the Russian Far East are an excellent training ground for this, in dire need of such transport services.

    And why do we need an IL-114, its ready-made Tu-334m can replace it and it can land on the ground if necessary, but the resource drops sharply like everyone else. Do we need a new 100 ton Elephant? I think that IL-76 is enough! IL-96 is also already in the past. Stop sawing our money, it would be better if they built a new SUV for the army.
