well, first off, yes I am new here, came across the site and really liked what I've seen on it too, as it appealed to my interests in aircraft and other military machinery, hopefully I'll be able to find some stuff of interest to contribute here later on...

but right now I've had a bit of a problem, I've been trying to find information and pictures on the Ilyushin Il-106, but surpriseingly, despite the fact it's purpose was to replace the Il-76 there's seemingly very little information I could find, and only two pictures of it that are of a small scale mock up...

So, I was wondering if anyone here has more info and possibly a three-view picture on it, cause as I said all I've really gotten was that it was simply a replacement for the Il-76, and seems to be based off of the C-17 in it's design (and that it could possibly be a canceled project, but only one source seemed to say that so I'm not sure if that's indeed true or not)

*wasn't sure wether this topic belongs here or not, the Il-106 didn't strike me exactly as a secret project, sorry if it's in the wrong section of the site though and if it is would any moderators or admins mind moving it to the right section?*

Well, IMHO, as the Il-106 was and most probably will not be built, this would belong to 'Postwar secret projects'. :) Anyhow, here's some basic info:

thanks for the info guys, was alot better than what I was gettin out of the original sources I found out about it on. 8)

just wondering though, is there any actual 3 view drawings of the Il-106? just wondering cause it'd be nice to see what the aircraft looks from more than just the angles of the pictures of the model that I've seen...but if there isn't any 3 view drawings I don't mind cause at least now I know the actual information about it, so thanks again

Some news:

Russia’s New Il-106 Plane Will Need No Airfields
17:39 11.11.2015

The Ilyushin Il-106 military transport plane, now being developed in Russia, will need no runway to take off and land, the deputy head of the Ilyushin Aviation Complex said on Wednesday.

“This plane is going to be very big, weighing 80 to 100 tons… What makes it so special, however, is its ability to land on a dirt runway, Sergei Velmozhkin told Rossiya 24 TV.

The Il-106 is still on the drawing board and the final design is due in 2017. The new plane will be assembled entirely from Russian-made parts, which Sergei Velmozhkin said will be much better than their foreign analogues.

The "weighing 80 to 100 tons" is obviously a mistranslation/misunderstanding, and would be referring to the maximum payload clearly.

This recent article has a drawing, attached below, that is captioned as being from Illyushin.
The winglets are different, as is the main landing gear.

Russia Revives Large Airlifter Design Work
by Vladimir Karnozov
- January 28, 2016, 9:06 AM

This is how the Il-106 looked when first revealed by the Ilyushin design bureau 25 years ago. (Photo: Ilyushin)
The Ilyushin design bureau has resumed work on a very large, four-engine airlifter that was first drafted in the late 1980s. The move comes after support for the Russian air force fleet of An-124 Ruslan heavy airlifters by the Antonov design bureau ended, as a result of the poor relations between Russia and Ukraine.

The Il-106 was originally meant to be a replacement for the aging An-22 turboprop heavy airlifter. Work commenced in 1987, and a draft design was completed in 1992, but funding shortages halted further progress.

But recently, Ilyushin general manager Sergei Velmozhkin told Russian TV that “the Il-106, a new airlifter being developed in Russia, shall be able to land on unpaved runways…this machine is going to be huge, [able to carry] a payload of 80 to 100 tons. Unlike previous designs, it shall be able to land on unprepared runways.” He said that the new aircraft was in the An-124 class.

Ilyushin general designer Nikolai Talikov also confirmed that a big airlifter is being developed. “We can speak about it seriously by 2022-2023” after design work is complete, he said.

The Il-106 was resumed after the Russian defense ministry requested the industry develop what it calls “Perspective Aviation Complex of Military Transport Aviation.” Subsequently, in late 2014/early 2015, United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) came up with a number of proposals, including the “Ermak project.” Details remained scarce until sources within Ilyushin began speaking of the Il-106 program resumption.

A scale model of the Il-106 appeared briefly at Ilyushin stands during airshows a quarter century ago. It revealed a classic ramp-airlifter design bearing resemblance to the Il-76 and An-124, but with winglets and a relatively wider and shorter fuselage. With a length of 58 meters (190 feet), and a wingspan of nearly 60 meters 197 feet], the Il-106 would have a maximum takeoff weight of 258 metric tons (569,000 pounds), and an empty weight of 135 metric tons (298,000 pounds). Cruise speed would be 820-850 km/h [442-460kt], and typical range would be 5,000 km (2,700nm). Field performance: takeoff and landing lengths between 1,400 and 1,550 meters (4,600 to 5,100 feet). The six-meter-wide cargo cabin (about 20 feet) would have a length of 34 meters (111.5 ft) and height of 4.6 meters (15 feet).

Power was to have come from four Nikolai Kuznetsov NK-92 ducted-fan engines each developing 18 metric tons of thrust (39,700 pounds)and developed for record-low fuel burn. Coupled with good lift qualities of the wing (area 370 sq m), these design elements were expected to delivermarkedly lower fuel burn on the Il-106 compared with the previous generation of Soviet airlifters.

Since neither the NK-92 nor its derivative NK-93 has been completed, the reborn Il-106 must have another engine. Most likely, it would be an up-rated version of the PD-14 engine from Aviadvigatel design house. The baseline PD-14 was developed for the Irkut MC-21 airliner, and is now on the brink of flight test on an Il-76 flying testbed.

NK-93 engine is developed from NK-92 engine.(Or NK-93 is a delivative of NK-92 engine.)
NK-92 is IL-106 engine.

Via Micael over at HP&CA:
Chief designer of @PAO_Ilyushin N.Talikov claims: We begin to design strategic heavy lifter Il-106 to replace An-124. Payload~80-120 t. A/c to get new engines, new avionics. Expected Il-106 to perform maiden flight in 2025-26. Thus no plans to restore An-124 at all v @RT_com

Hi!


"The Ilyushin Il-106 military transport plane being developed in Russia, will need no runway to take off and land, the deputy head of the Ilyushin Aviation Complex said on 11 November 2015. “This plane is going to be very big, weighing 80 to 100 tons… What makes it so special, however, is its ability to land on a dirt runway, Sergei Velmozhkin told Rossiya 24 TV.

Apparently the Il-106 he is talking about will be a completely different aircraft than the original one. Same role and designation, different design, or have I missed the point?

On a sidenote, I found some size comparisons for the original IL-106.
