Ilyushin Il-112
 
 Ily-112-01
 
The Ilyushin Il-112 is a high-wing light military transport aircraft developed by Ilyushin Aviation Complex (JSC IL) for air landing and airdrop of military air cargoes, equipment and personnel. The aircraft is being manufactured by Voronezh Aircraft Production Association.
 
The Il-112 has similar weights and dimensions to the An-26 it is intended to replace but differs by having a notably larger cabin cross-section, allowing it to accommodate 44 armed soldiers instead of 38. Thanks to the engine's reduced specific fuel consumption, which is down by 38 percent, the Il-112 has twice the ferry range, at 5,200 km (2,808 nm). The crew is reduced from six to two thanks to modern avionics and onboard equipment. All aviation information as well as information on the operation of aircraft systems is displayed on six LCD monitors.
 
The aircraft was designed to operate in adverse weather conditions and is expected to meet all current ICAO noise and emissions requirements.
 
In May 2011, the Russian Defense Ministry decided to abandon the military transport version of the Il-112 and purchase seven Antonov An-140T cargo planes.
 
In January 2013 it was announced that in late December, the Main Commander of the Russian Air Force presented the Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu the case for a resumption of the Il-112 project. On 24 June 2013 it was reported that the Il-112 is considered as a replacement for the Antonov An-26, and on 26 June, that the Ilyushin Design Bureau sent JSC Klimov a request for the establishment of a new turboprop engine. In August 2013, the general designer of Ilyushin, Viktor Livanov, citing the First Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov, confirmed that work on the aircraft has been resumed.
 
On 18 January 2018, the first prototype of the IL-112V was shown at the Voronezh Joint Stock Aircraft Manufacturing Company (VASO). It has two improved Klimov TV7-11ST turboprop engines, with 2,610 kW (3,500 hp) each, each powering 6-bladed AV-112 constant-speed reversible pitch propellers. It is fitted with a monolithic, single piece wing. The aircraft is 25.15 m long, with a height of 8.89 m and a wing span of 27.6 m.
 
The first prototype of the Il-112V was rolled out on 27 November 2018. It is intended for performance and flight handling trials. Taxi trials had begun by the end of December.
