New light military transport aircraft Il-112B produced by Ilyushin Aviation Complex under the state contract with the Defense Ministry, will be equipped with modern turboprop engines TV7-117ST developed by the company “Klimov”, a source in the aviation industry reported to “Interfax-AVN”.
“Ilyushin aviation complex and United Engine Corporation plan to sign a contract to develop a power plant of the IL-112, the base engine of which will be the TV7-117ST,” a spokesman said.
