The newest light military transport aircraft Il-112V will be made entirely of Russian units; at the moment, the problem of substitution of the three remaining Ukrainian units is being solved, said Chief Designer of “Ilyushin Aviation Complex” (JSC “IL”) Nikolai Talikov on Friday.
“The task of import substitution in this IL-112V aircraft has been set. It has three Ukrainian units left; the issue of their substitution is being solved. The aircraft will be completely, one hundred percent Russian,” – said Talikov at a round table held during the MAKS.
He also said that the Il-112B trials for military tasks will be held in 2019.
