From the forum rules "... Prototypes that didn't enter series production may also be appropriate " ;)

IL-112 is about the same weight (46,000 pounds) as other medium-sized twin turbo-prop transports like CASA 295, DHC-5 Buffalo and the Italian C-27 Spartan.

Reportedly they managed to cut almost 2.1t from its weight, but I'm not sure whether that says more about the success of the weight reduction measures or how badly overweight it previously was!

It's some really massive yoke columns for such small screens (and positioned vertically).

I'm surprised the cockpit does not have a heads up display integrated, it seems like standard equipment to have on a tactical transport. Are there plans to integrate a HUD later on ?

That's more NATO thing. Russian transports don't use HUDs and cabin lightning isn't made for NVG use either. IL-76MD-90 doesn't have HUD either.
Plus Russia don't produce HUD for civilian|transport aircraft, and I doubt that companies that do will sell them.

Hmm, maybe. The source was not originally Russian. I was just surfing the foreign Internet. Although it seems that there was such a photo in the Russians.

From July of 2019:

IL-112 - a long road to the sky - RUSSIAN AVIATION
March 30, 2019, on the day of the 125th anniversary of the birth of the outstanding and world-famous aircraft designer Sergey Vladimirovich Ilyushin, the first flight of a new lightweight military transport aircraft Il-112B took place. The modern Russian aviation industry does not often make us happy with new aircraft. And the Il-112 is not an easy story. But still, along with a new modification of the IL-76, this is the second transport aircraft, lifted into the sky by the renowned design bureau in the current decade. About how the machine was created, about the first flight and the upcoming improvements tells the Chief Designer of PJSC "Il" Nikolai Dmitrievich Talikov.
