in a Russian book about Ilyushin Il-78,I found one unknown aircraft and some projects,
for the unknown design, Il-783 and maybe they meant Il-78Z
Not a "three", not a "zee", but an "E"...

In my opinion when editing the magazine made a mistake, namely: confused signatures depicting IL-38 and IL-48.
That is the last picture in Reply # 127 given IL-38 (with characteristic only to him landing gear)

the Ilyushin Il-16 light transport aircraft,had a version with turret gun and some
changes in its fuselage (not the early concept).

No data. These planes remained at the preliminary projects were not even brought to the stage of demonstration models ...
It is also known that Il-44, except turboprop VK-2 had an alternative embodiment with a powerful piston engine Dobrynin VD-4K.
As for Il-58, after Stalin's death and her subsequent revision of military doctrine, the interest of the customer to the construction of aircraft carriers, and with them, and planes for their weapons, long disappeared in the Soviet Union.

Hi, guys!
One of the very early Il-12 double-tailed project with ACh-31 engines. Note the shape of the fuselage nose part - it was used than in Il-18 (1947)
My dear Ucon,

we can say that,the early Il-18 was appeared in two variants,the first was a four engined airliner
(ACh-72),Project of 1945,and the second was a twin engined (ASh-73TK) experimental airplane
of 1946.

Any Il-18 never was twin-engined. The Il-18 of 1946 was four-engined, and it was 66-seat airliner prototype, not experimental aircraft.

The 1945 project with diesel engines was early version of the same aircraft. The diesels themselves are mentioned as "ACh-72" in some sources, but such an engine never existed; most probably it's a misprint and ACh-32 would be correct. But they weren't ready to fly in 1946 (actually, ACh-32 never reached "flyable" stage), so the project was modified for ASh-73TK radials.

Dear Hesham,

If any source proclaims Il-18 was twin-engined, that source gives wrong info. The Il-18 of 1946 was actual aircraft, and you can count its engines by yourself. The 1946 project of twin-engined 48-seat airliner with ASh-73 engines actually existed, but it was called Il-14. That's the Il-14 which is mentioned in your post http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,4933.msg269206.html#msg269206.

Hi! Il-46.
http://avia.pro/blog/il-46

https://aviaforum.ru/threads/brigada-obschix-vidov-i-ix-ehskizy-kak-po-anglijski.37112/

http://www.airwar.ru/enc/bomber/il46.html

"SV Ilyushin received a task to develop a medium-range high-speed jet bomber (with twice the maximum combat load and range of flight, as compared to Il-28). Then they made an unusual decision: when creating the IL-46 (as it was called) to build for a full-scale complex comparative evaluation, two different experienced ones: one with a layout close to Il-28, with a straight wing, and the second with a swept one. Indeed, the aerodynamic and structural layout of the IL-28 has proven itself in the process of operation. This scheme did not allow to reach the preset maximum speed of flight (1000 km / h), but it ensured the achievement of a long flight range with minimum geometric dimensions and mass of the aircraft, and therefore a much lower cost of its manufacture and operation. The development of the preliminary design project was completed in October 1951.
The second prototype Il-46S ("C" - with a speed of flight of 1000 km / h should have a wing with a sweep of 35degree. Its main feature was a thickened root part for strength and rigidity and placing a significant part of the fuel. On Il-28, all the fuel was placed in the fuselage.The swept wing has several worse load-bearing properties than the straight wing, so its area and mass for Il-46C were increased.The draft design was approved by Ilyushin in December 1951. The first prototype of the Il-46 was a Twin-motor All-metal midplane with a straight wing and a swept plumage.Externally very similar to the IL-28, the "forty-sixth" was significantly larger and twice as heavy as it was. The turbojet engines with an axial compressor AL-5 (another designation TR-3A) ​​with take-off thrust of 5000 kgs , Developed under the leadership of AM Ljulka.They were located under the wing in the front parts of the nacelle, far removed also beyond the front edge of the plane to balance the mass of the heavy two-gun movable stern And the mass of the cab of the radio arrowhead with its heavy armor. Hot gases were thrown at the rear edge of the wing through the long, five-meter tailpipes. The outer contour of the motor gondolas on the wing section was made taking into account the "area rule" for reducing the interference resistance at the junction of the wing and the gondola. "

"During the factory flight tests, the maximum speed of horizontal flight was reached - 928 km / h at an altitude of 5000 m and the maximum flight range - 4845 km with a combat cargo of 5,000 kg dropped on the half way. State tests conducted in the summer of 1952 confirmed the compliance of the flight-technical data with the specified ones. IL-46 was created as an alternative to the Tu-16 bomber. In the same year of 1952 it was decided to launch the second production in series production, and the IL-46 program stopped work, including the construction of the second pilot IL-46S with a swept wing.

http://www.airwar.ru/enc/bomber/il54.html
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilyushin_Il-54
"Because the wings and engine nacelles were too small to house a conventional undercarriage, the Il-54 used a bicycle undercarriage arrangement, with nose and main gear units on the centreline of the aircraft, at each end of the bomb bay. This arrangement meant a conventional rotating takeoff would be impossible. To enable the Il-54 to take off, in a reasonable runway length, the main gear knelt and the nose gear extended to give the ideal angle of incidence for takeoff (10 degrees)." (Il-30 had same concept?)

Hi! Il-38 and Il-42.
http://alternathistory.com/proekty-frontovykh-bombardirovshchikov-il-38-i-il-42-sssr
Il-38.
"The experience of creating the IL-30 and operating the IL-28 was taken into account in the development of the design of the IL-38 jet bomber with two turbojet engines TR-3, which was considered as a further development of the IL-30. The new bomber retained the bomb load and the outer forms of the IL-30, but was smaller in size and smaller in weight, with a composition of defensive weapons and with the use of a normal tricycle landing gear.

Il-42 bomber
In accordance with the wishes of the customer and the government decree of July 10, 1950, the design of the IL-38 aircraft was reworked for the installation of engines TP-3A (AL-5) with a take-off thrust of 5000 kgf. With a normal bomb load of 2,000 kg (maximum bomb load of 4,000 kg), the aircraft was to have the same flight range as Il-28, a range of 2,400 kilometers and based on the same airfields as the IL-28. The new aircraft was assigned the designation Il-42, and the OKB began work on producing working drawings and preparing the production for the construction of an experimental machine.

But already in half a year, when more than 50% of the drawings were produced, and the construction of the experimental car began, the customer made a new requirement to increase the flight range by almost half, and the weight of the maximum bomb cargo - by one and a half. This requirement was fixed by a government decree of March 24, 1951, according to which S.V. Ilyushin was obliged to begin factory tests in a year, and in July 1952 to show for state tests an aircraft with the specified flight-technical data. This new aircraft was an experienced front - line bomber Il-46 . "

So I have two Il-38 drawings. Landing gear shape is different.
Explanation of top drawing is as follows. http://alternathistory.com/proekty-frontovykh-bombardirovshchikov-il-38-i-il-42-sssr
"At the insistence of SV Ilyushin, IL-38 was carried out in triple. Defensive weapons were the same as Il-28: two HP-23 guns protected the front hemisphere, and the Il-K6 feeder with two HP-23 covered the rear hemisphere. The main support of the chassis was four - under each of the nacelles there were two supports. They had one wheel each and retracted one forward, the other back. At the same time, the wheels were rotated 90 ° and laid flat into the lower part of the nacelle.
The bomber project received a positive evaluation from the customer, who, however, deemed it necessary to improve the aircraft's take-off data by installing more powerful engines."

Hi! Il-40.
http://militaryrussia.ru/blog/topic-248.html
"IL-40 / IL-40P - BRAWNY
Stormtrooper. The proposal for the development of a new Il-40 attack aircraft with TVD-2 (VK-2) was put forward by OKB-240 (OKB SV Ilyushin) at the USSR MAP in the summer of 1949 with the release of a prototype for tests in September 1950. The proposal of OKB- 240 was initially rejected. Later in 1950-1951 gg. On the initiative and under the guidance of SV Ilyushin, the layout of the attack aircraft with two AM-5 turbojet engines was developed. At the end of 1951, a technical proposal for the creation of an attack aircraft was developed. In January 1951 the proposal was presented to the MAP of the USSR. The decision of the Council of Ministers of the USSR on the creation of the aircraft was nevertheless adopted on February 1, 1952 and, since the work on the project was carried out even before the adoption of the resolution, on February 23, 1952, the protection of the draft project was defended. The model of the aircraft was presented to the Air Force Commission in May 1952 and approved.

The first prototype was built in February 1953. Plant tests were started on March 7, 1953 and the first flight was made on March 17, 1953 (pilot - VK Kokkinaki, engineer - APVinogradov). At the end of March 1953, during the test shooting of a ground target at the "Faustovo" test site, the phenomenon of engine stop was observed for salvo firing from nasal guns for the first time. A program has been launched for the development of a gun installation to reduce the effect of propellant gases on the operation of engines. Tests under this program started on April 1, 1953. Based on the test results, it was decided to replace 6 HP-23 cannons with 4 AM-23 / TKB-495A guns of the same caliber, but with a higher rate of fire and place a gas outlet chamber in the nose of the fuselage. The changes were implemented on the first flight prototype Il-40. Later, the design of the gas outlet chamber was refined. The test document, signed by VK Kokkinaki on December 29, 1953, states that with the continuous release of 320 rounds from the bow thruster, there is no engine malfunction.

IL-40P - the second copy of the aircraft with air intakes carried in the bow of the fuselage and a mobile strike artillery installation. Construction started in 1954. (top drawing)

Il-40K is an artillery reconnaissance scout (a prototype was being built). In the forward part of the fuselage a transparent lantern with a cabin of the third member of the crew - navigator-spotter is installed. The navigator's workplace was protected by armor, the front, bottom and side windows of the lantern were made of armor glass. The RD-9V engines had conventional side air intakes, as on the first test car, guns were supposed to be installed in the wing on the site of the wing bombs. The first experimental IL-40K was already under construction - the assembly of the fuselage was finished, when the order for the termination of all work on the Il-40 was received.

Il-40U - training modification (project).

Il-40R - reconnaissance aircraft (project).

Il-40T - torpedo carrier (project). The navigator was located in the forward part of the fuselage with a transparent lantern (similar to Il-40K), which had flat upper and lower windshields for aiming at torpedometanii. The location of RD-9V engines and cannon armament is similar to Il-40K. Work on IL-40T was stopped at the initial design stage. "

"Serial production . Apparently in 1954, at the plant No. 168 in Rostov-on-Don, the first series of 40 aircraft of the IL-40 standard was laid, and later the IL-40P. The first 5 fuselages of serial aircraft are assembled in the pilot production of OKB-240. In 1955 it was planned to put the first 15 aircraft in the Air Force, then in February 1956 the Minister of the USSR MAP wrote that since the state tests were not completed in 1955 and there is no standard airplane model accepted by the Air Force, the first 15 aircraft of the plant series No. 168 in 1955 could not deliver. By the spring of 1956, the first 5 Il-40P tanks were assembled at the plant No. 168, with which they were working on the flight-test aerodrome of the plant. The armored hull for the first serial IL-40 is made of ordinary steel - i.e. These aircraft could only be used for flight crew training. Unexpectedly, by resolution of the Council of Ministers of the USSR of April 13, 1956, the IL-40P aircraft is withdrawn from mass production and work on it is terminated "in connection with equipping the USSR SAS with new types of weapons." The reserve for the Il-40P series at the plant No. 168 has been destroyed. Order of the Minister of Defense of the USSR of April 20, 1956 abolished assault aircraft. "
