Transporters

Ka-50

Transport planes has always been the shadow of armed forces. However, many extraordinary transport planes were produced in Russia, the best known are probably IL-76 and An-124. Currently Russian and Ukraine are looking to replace their aging fleet with An-70, however this is slow due to technical issues arrising from the political standoff between Russian and Ukraine. Not much attention has been paid to the transport fleet as fighters grab most of the budget for the airforce and IL-76 still has a lot of life in them. Perhaps co-operations with China & India might change the current situation and hopefully we'll see something interesting in the future.
