How to tell the "WP" in the Voronezh Aircraft Plant (VASO), representatives of the Ministry of Defense were interested in the idea of converting almost three tankers new liner Il-96-400T. Four of these machines made to order "IFC Leasing" for the local airline "flight." In the operation of the market long-distance freight traffic has changed dramatically, and the park had to leave just one side. The question of placing an order for new tankers included in the agenda for the August meeting of Dmitry Rogozin. Scheduled to speak there and the resumption of pre-production light military transport Il-112. As reported by "RG", it was developed in the framework of the state defense order, but the budget allocated regularly, and in 2010, the funding altogether ceased. Although the aircraft was listed in federal weapons program until 2015, at the VACO supposed to let out on 18 of these cars in a year. Now there was an idea to "unfreeze" the project, making a bet on the dual-purpose aircraft: one seating arrangement can carry Marines, on the other — "civilian". In this case, the Ministry of War to share the costs with commercial airlines — members of the state program of development of regional air transportation. In the United Aircraft Corporation stated that the positive decision in 2015 to produce realistic prototypes in the 2018-2020-m — expand production.

Recall now VASO fulfills the order by the Ministry of Defence production of 15 An-148 in special versions: the end of the year will give one side, in 2014 and 2015 to four in 2016 and 2017 — three. The contract for the supply of specialized AN-148 signed with the FSB. In addition, the plant produces two Il-96-300 for a special aircraft division "Russia" (subordinate administration of President), two more have to put the year 2015. The portfolio of orders as "truck" IL-96-400VPU for the company "Rosneft".
