China is looking to buy "a large batch" of Ilyushin Il-76 transports and Il-78 inflight refuelling tankers, says Ilyushin general director Victor Livanov. The deal is thought to cover the production of up to 30 Il-76s and six Il-78s at the TAPO facility in the Uzbek capital Tashkent, with after-sales support to be provided by the Ilyushin design bureau.
