Thank you very much Ucon,

do you hear about the Il-97 ?,I saw it in Internet,but I don't know
if it is fake aircraft or not !.
Mesa el heir, dear Hesham
Aircraft is not fake, but its name real fake!
In Ilyushin DB never use such designation for plane. As the rule name Il-97 usualy was given to Il-80 or to Il-82 by "great experts" in the West ;D
Dear Ucon,

Il-11 new lightweight military transport
Il-87 Il-86 based airborne control system
Il-104 ground attack prototype ?
Il-140 AWACS development of Il-114
Il-140M maritime patrol
Il-138 airliner ?
Dear Hesham!!!
I will be VERY grateful to you if you tell me the sources of such designations of Il.
Hope it is not another website.
Il-138 (multi-purpose patrol aircraft with AI-20 engines), Il-140 (AI-20 engines equipped AEWACS) and Il-140M (maritime SAR aircraft) are mentioned here as Il-114 derivatives

Hesham's list is obviously taken from here
Dear Flateric!
I asked Hesham give me a link to a real sources, not to the amateuric site. I have just returned from IlDB. What can I say...

Yes, thank you. May I ask if the 'Il-Z' is a recent project?

Great scans! But it would be better still if you could give the dates, or at least the years if you have them...

No problem

Il-90 from Flight International 3-9 October, 1990 page 32

Il-108 from Flight International 9-15 May, 1990 page 28

Does anyone know what the real Il-38 looked like? Many years ago, Revell issued a model kit under that designation that was really the Myasischev M-4 instead.
Hi all

Il-118: proposal re-engined version of Il-18 with only twin turboprops (2 * 10 000 s.h.p.)

from: Nikolay Yakubovich "aircraft Il-18"
Although in Russian, I believe this chart recapitulating all the variants of the Il-2 in the form of a family tree could be useful to some. It's taken from a 103-page compilation of articles by Vladimir Pierov and Oleg Rastrenin entitled Shturmovik Il-2.
