Russian KRET will replace the An-26 transport aircraft with modified Il-112v.
KRET will equip light military transport aircraft Il-112V with a strapdown inertial navigation system (SINS) to determine the location of an object in offline mode.
"MIEA is ready to adapt the SINS system for the Il-112V. We are interested in providing the aircraft with the system as soon as possible. The system has already been mass produced, and even if some modification is required, it will not take a long time,” Alexey Kuznetsov, CEO of the Moscow Institute of Electromechanics and Automation (MIEA), which is developing the system said.
The SINS will be able to determine the location of an object, carry out system processing and issue navigation and flight information by determining the co-ordinates and parameters of an object in offline mode without the help of ground-based, naval or satellite signals.
The Il-112V light military transport aircraft is designed for the transportation and airdrop of light weapons and military equipment, goods, and personnel, as well as for the transport of a wide range of different loads in the commercial operation of the aircraft.
A contract was signed with the Russian Defense Ministry for the Il-112V in December 2014. As reported by Yuri Borisov, deputy head of the military department, the Il-112 should make its first flight in mid-2017, with the beginning of mass production planned for 2019.
Russia has further intensified its attacks against IS with Kalibr missiles that was fired by the Rostov-on-Don submarine from the Mediterranean Sea at the Islamic State facilities. "It was the first time that Kalibr cruise missiles were fired by the Rostov-on-Don submarine from the Mediterranean Sea to target the IS positions," Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin, TASS reports Tuesday

The United Engine Corporation (part of the Rostec State Corporation) has begun flight testing of the turboprop engine TV7-117ST developed by JSC "ODK-Klimov", which is being built to equip the IL-112V light military transport aircraft and the IL-114-300 regional airliner. "The testing of the TV7-117ST engine is an important stage in the creation of two sought-after products of the United Aircraft Corporation: the new light IL-112V military transport aircraft waiting for the Armed Forces and the IL-114-300 passenger aircraft needed to expand regional traffic in our the country,” said Yuri Slyusar, President of UAC Tuesday...
The Russian Defense Ministry has got 243 aircraft, 90 air defense missile systems and complexes under the state defense order in the past one year.
