I sincerely don't understand this. Antonov is making variant after variant of a plane nobody really buys. They made 35 148s and 158s since 2004!!! That's 3 frames a year. And most of those were political contracts signed by government or government-controlled airlines. Maybe it's time to look around and try to build something that will actually sell.

Building aircraft in such low rate is intended mainly to keep the Antonov's design and manufacturing alive till better times arrive

And what would be "better times" according to Antonov? For the past 25 years since the collapse of the USSR, they've successfully missed an enormous surge in regional jets sales, then the rise of the larger jets like Embraer 190, and now they're totally missing the resurrection of turpoprops. I heard they used to make very good meat mincers. Maybe they should go back to that and have more success?
