There was/is a maritime patrol version of the Tupolev Tu-204-200 - the Tu-204P. I believe it may even have included provision for a Cannon-pod. It was to replace the IL-38 amongst others. Not sure if it is still an active project or whether it died for lack of funds.

Regards,

Greg

Over the years, I've seen mention of a proposal for an ASW version of the Tu-204 to replace the Tu-142s & Il-38s, but I've yet to see any specifics or drawings. Anyone know any more?

Google shows only the Tu-214SR when looking for Tu-214R. Any pics or drawings available for this model?

Thanks in advance.

Certainly interesting - note that (going also by the pylons, not just the nacelles, which may be distorted by the wide angle camera lens) it appears to have RR engines! A proposal for India perhaps? It's also fitted with a refueling probe.

Pylons here are made of BiC pens if my memory serves me well (wasn't in model shop for a while).

Actually, the Rolls Royce powered variant, which was also available with western avionics, was sold to Cairo Aviation in Egypt, which obtained 3 204-120s, and 2 204-120Cs. As usual, there was no interest in the aircraft outside of the Soviet sphere of influence. I can't seem to reach the Cairo Aviation webpage if it has one, though.

Much appreciated. But you see how much interest the West showed in this aircraft, despite prices that did undercut similar Western types, such as the 757 and the A321.
