Russia plans to begin acquisition of new aircraft for its military transport aviation fleet in 2012, amidst increasing comments about its current fleet as outdated and unsafe.

The air force plans to have the Il-112V plane in the light transport category and a multi-role transport aircraft, to be developed in association with India, in the medium-lift category.

The IL-112V is still at the design stage while MTA project is scheduled for implementation in 2013.

Russia plans to continue to modernise its aircraft to extend their service life for another 20 years to meet the demand for the high mobility of its armed forces under the new military doctrine.
