Ilyushin unveils plans for Large Cargo Transporter

Thu Apr 25, 2019 7:54 pm

Tweet in Russian: ... 6810074113
English translation: "IL" has prepared a draft design of the IL-96-500T for the transport of missile parts to the East

Doesn't appear the aircraft will be used in the same manner Boeing's LCF and Airbus's Beluga are. This is purely for weaponry transport.
