Il-76TD aircraft is the evolution of the transport modification of the Il-76T aircraft.
The transportation efficiency of the aircraft has been improved, in comparison with Il-76T, by way of increasing maximum takeoff weight from 170 to 190 tons, maximum commercial load from 43.4 to 50 tons, and practical flying range with increased maximum load. Due to increased maximum takeoff weight and commercial load, and in order to improve operating life figures, the structures in the wing, fuselage and landing gear have been reinforced.
The aircraft is equipped with D-30KP series 2 engines ensuring maintenance of maximum takeoff thrust at higher temperatures of ambient air.
Implementation of methodologies developed by the State Research Institute of Civil Aviation and Design Engineering Bureau of Takeoff Methodsallow Il-76TD to operate from the same airstrips as the Il-76T, but with the increased takeoff weight, and its improved fuel efficiency ensures larger cargo transportation volumes, while consuming the same amount of fuel.
Il-76TD ensures transportation of a wide variety of cargoes in all kinds of conditions. Technical capabilities of the aircraft allow its operation in extreme conditions of the Antarctic, where it has been used successfully as the main transportation aircraft for many years already.
