Shiv,
The "IL-76" we see parked outside is actually an Il-78 Midas tanker. If you look closely the refueling pods attached to the pylons on either sides are clearly visible.
Thanks

India also need hardly long range bombers like Tu-22m3 backfire for land attack/marine purpose is massive numbers , which china is purchasing with tot to build massive numbers in china ,which could be used for striking nuclear weapons & long range bombers against india. Just upgrading the bases/and shifting weapons will never make any difference , need only more new weapons in fastrack. for self defense purpose india hardly needs S-400 Sams MoD & DAC of india should need to consider this in highly fastrack. Look in to east policy has become dual & invisible . China is declaring Kashmir… Read more »

Thanks a lot Shiv! BTW, is that a '76 or a '78 parked in front? It seems like having one of those fuel tanks attached on the outboard pylon.

Hey Shiv! That's an IL-78 parked outside! It says "IL-78MKI" right below the cockpit windows. Also, the snaps look like they've been photoshopped!! What the…?!!

Looking forward to your Phalcon ops report.

Sirji, the fact that the entire fatso family – IL-76/78MKI/PHALCON, is hosted exclusively at Agra is suspicious. It seems to indicate that either there is a shortage of pilots operating the type or that these elephants (IAF designation "GAJRAJ") eat a lot of bananas (spares, servicing)! Can you comment on that in your Phalcon report? Thx.

Check the meaning of the word 'hardly'.

IL-76 has a lot of problems, to say the least. I fear for them in a all out air war. >>October 12, 2009: Russia has suffered another setback in its attempt to revive the Il-76 military transport as an exportable aircraft for their struggling aviation industry. All Russian Il-76 were recently grounded because the engine fell off one of them while it was preparing to takeoff. All Russian Il-76s will remain grounded until it can be determined what went wrong, and whether or not the problem is common to all Il-76s. >>Once again, a Russian built IL-76 cargo plane has… Read more »

Yes Vincent,

I can see your googling skills on 'IL-76' are once again being put to use…it is a different story that u only care to copy and paste the negative news on russian equipment..

even if u had a rare tumor (which i am sure you do..somewhere in your peanut brain) and it was told to you the only surgeon in the world who was qualified to remove the tumor was a russian surgeon I am sure you would ask some yank to operate instead….

need i say more?
