In Russia, where the An-26 crashed only a month and a half ago , there was a new plane crash – with the latest military transport aircraft IL-112v.

This was reported by RBC .

The accident happened near the Kubinka airfield in the Moscow region. It is assumed that while performing a training flight, the plane landed and fell into a forest strip.

According to Russian media, before the crash, the crew managed to report a fire on board. As can be seen in the footage, before falling into the IL-112B right in the air, the right engine caught fire:https://www.unian.ua/player/euvcTZ5RPlane crash near Moscow

At the helm of the aircraft was a test pilot, the hero of Russia Nikolai Kuimov. In total, there were three people on board. According to preliminary data, none of them survived.

Technical reasons and a pilot error are among the reasons for what happened. However, the reason will be officially named based on the results of the investigation of the special commission. 

Russian plane IL-112v: what is known?

IL-112V is a new generation Russian light transport aircraft manufactured at the Voronezh Aircraft Plant. Designed to replace An-24 and An-26 aircraft.

It is planned to produce modifications for military transport and commercial aircraft.

The plane arrived in Zhukovsky near Moscow to participate in the Russian military forum “Army 2021”.

We will remind that last week in the territory of reserve on the Russian Kamchatka the Mi-8 helicopter on board which there were 16 people fell . Half of them died.

  • Il-112V is the first military transport aircraft developed in Russia “from scratch” in the post-Soviet period. It should replace the An-24 and An-26. The aircraft is designed to transport and airborne up to five tons of light weapons, military equipment, cargo and personnel, Interfax writes. The first test flight of the Il-112V took place in March 2019.

    “from scratch”aka without Ukrainian components like engines.

  • In an attempt to draw attention away from usual Ruskie incompetence, mafia officials will blame the earth’s gravity for provoking this excessive provocation.
    Get rid of the mafia structure in the country and MAYBE your competent scientists and engineers will return.

    • As noted by TASS, the tests of the aircraft were difficult, in particular, it was repeatedly reported that the prototypes of the machine turned out to be too heavy. According to unconfirmed information provided by the WarGonzo project, the Il-112V had engine problems during its previous test flights.

      Il-112V, which crashed in Kubinka, is the only flight model of the aircraft. A few days before the crash, he flew from Voronezh to Zhukovsky near Moscow to prepare for the Army-2021 military-technical forum.

      EVEN BY RUSSIAN LOW STANDARDS IT WAS JUNK!!!!!

  • In 2003, the Il-112 project won the competition of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation for the best design of a light military transport aircraft. However, in 2010-2011, its development was abandoned in favor of the Ukrainian An-140.

    HERE IS THE ANSWER AS EXPECTED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
