    General Data

    Il-76MD military transport aircraftis based on the Il-76M serial productionmilitary transport aircraft.

    The aircraft is meant for parachute operations and landing of military personnel, military equipment, cargoes, fuel and containers. By reinforcing its main structural elements (airframe and landing gear), the maximum takeoff weight and commercial load have been increased.

    The aircraft is equipped with 4 turbojet double-flow engines, the D-30KP series 2, with the thrust of 12 000 kgf each. The power plant provides the aircraftwith high thrust/weight ratio and the presence of thrust reversers reduces the landing distance.

    Il-76MD has a powerful wing-flap system and bogie landing gear with highly effective brake system, which allows takeoff and landing operations on unpaved airstrips.

    The aircraft has an airproof freight compartment and a loading ramp to ensure convenient loading/unloading operations and parachuting of military personnel and cargo. Three passenger modules, shaped like standard freight containers, can be installed in the freight compartment.
