The export version of Il-112VE light military transport aircraft is set to make its debut at MAKS-2019 international air show to be held later this month.
“At MAKS 2019, Russian manufacturers will be unveiling the fifth-generation Su-57E multi-role fighter jet and the Il-112VE light military transport aircraft, the hottest and most anticipated new products of recent years. I’m sure the interest in them will be massive,” said Alexander Mikheev, Rosoboronexport’s Director General and Deputy Chairman of the Russian Engineering Union.
According to a statement released by Rosoboronexport on Friday, the Il-112VE aircraft is intended for the transportation and airdropping of cargo, vehicles, equipment, ammunition and personnel.
It is equipped with two new higher-power and more fuel-efficient engines, the TV7-117ST, and AV112 propellers controlled by a single automatic control system which increases flight safety and provides good take-off and landing performance allowing the aircraft to be operated from short runways.
