IL-14
IL-18
IL-62
IL-76
IL-86
IL-96
IL-114

TU-134
TU-144
TU-154
TU-204
TU-334

I cannot see a pattern in the numbers of the Ilyushin aircraft.

As far as I can tell, the Tupolev aircraft all end in -4s and go up in increments of -10 until the -154, then it goes to the -204 and -334.

My question is, is there any logic to this pattern or is it simply random? Thanks!

 Big thumbs up

TU-204 = "New generation" of the TU-104!

Seems to me that the civilian aircraft all end in an even number, and the military ones all end in odd numbers...

There is also a TU-330 and the whole Antonov line.

The Antonov line starts all the way back to with the AN-2.

In the military system, all odd-numbered airplanes are those whose primary mission is interception of enemy a/c (i.e. MiG-25, Su-27), even-numbered a/c are those which primarily serve for bombing and ground attack purposes (i.e. Su-20, Su-22, Su-24). There are exceptions, such as the Su-25 and the Su-30. This obviously does not apply to transports, although they all seem to have even numbers, except the An-225.  Smile

LY744.
