Russian MoD announces procurement of Czech-designed L-410 aircraft
Jiri Kominek - Jane's Defence Weekly
10 January 2018


The Russian Ministry of Defence (MoD) has announced it will procure 18 Czech-designed L-410 Turbolet short-range, twin-engined, short take-off and landing (STOL) capable transport aircraft for an undisclosed price from the Ural Works of Civil Aviation (UZGA) in Yekaterinburg, where the aircraft are assembled under licence.

We have a firm contract for 18 aircraft. We intend to use them in complicated meteorological conditions for landing on water and snow. We also plan to use this modification [of the aircraft] for special operations, Deputy Defence Minister General Yuri Borisov told Russias TASS News Agency during a visit to the UZGA facility on 25 December 2017.

TASS reported that UZGA intends to equip the locally assembled L-410 with Russian avionics and modify the already robust airframe to enable the aircraft to land on snow, water, and on soft, austere surfaces such as grass and tundra.

In 2013, Aircraft Industries, a subsidiary of the publicly listed Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company (UGMK), owned by Uzbek-born Russian oligarch Iskander Makhmudov, has held a 100% stake in the financially troubled Let Kunovice.

ALL the old Antonovs? Man can dream...

More like a small oasis of sanity in a desert of deficite caused by misguided state policy on light aviation. If there's anything even more fucked-up that the US DOD procurement system, it's the Russian law and licensing policy for engine and aircraft/rotorcraft models when it comes to light and ultra-light aviation, and state (support for) enterprises that fly medium, short and very short routes (especially to and from the places really hard to reach by anything else). This would have lead to all but complete deterioration of medium and light civil aviation, were it not for said old Antonov AN-2s. The airframes and engines can be kept up indefinitely, or so it seems...

Russian forums on this topic are therefore full to the brim with equivalents of EchoFiveMike, and need I say that they HATE? And what a reason they have...

 

EDIT: Now, coming to speak of the AN-2, it's an excellent aircraft for what it was designed to do - not only comparatively easy and cheap to keep up, engine and airframe wise, but also a design with possibilities for upgrades - engine swaps (to gas turbines such as imports of dedicated models, say, by Garrett, or conversions of Soviet/Russian APUs/GPUs of respective power range - both comparatively easy), and upgrades to airframe/wings, using modern composite materials.

Wasn't there the An-3 equipped with turboprop engines already in soviet times?

Yes, but project really did not pick up and USSR had collapsed by the time it was certified. Nowadays Ukraine offers An-2-100:

And Russia TVS-2DTS

L-410s have more capacity than An-2 and a far higher cruise speed. An-2 cruise speed is too slow for an airline to operate it.
