Ilyushin is working on a heavily modified Il-114 derivative, the Il-114FK, as a replacement for the Antonov An-30 Clank and Ilyushin Il-20 Coot military utility aircraft. A prototype could be flown in 1997. The Russian air force operates some 30 Clanks in the aerial-cartography role, with the Coots being used for reconnaissance.
