Does anyone know the launch date on the Il-96-400?

I may not have this correct but I believe the pax version isn't in operation yet (real world time). I am not sure if that is because of safety concerns, production issues, no orders, or something else entirely. There are only a few cargo version 400T's in use at present time.

It is very tough to tell what is actually happening with the Il-96-400. I saw a picture of a prototype on Airliners from 2003 however it did not have the ps-90a engines on it or the pw2237 engines but rather another russian version.

THI as far as I know the Il-96M which has the PW engines was launched in 1993 and either flew or entered service in 2000. However that version is not in the game.

However that version is not in the game.

I believe that is because, to my knowledge, only one 96M was manufactured/flown. There are quite a few prototypes and even production planes that saw only a handful of units manufactured, if any at all. Despite some of them having great potential, and likely would see considerable use within AWS, I don't believe Sami adds planes to the game that were not at least moderately put to use in commercial aviation.

Actually, this was just discussed somewhere, and if I don't recall wrong, Sami hinted he might be adding even those planes that didn't see the full light as commercial airliners, as long as there is sufficient info about them.

Yes I would actually very much like to include the prototypes too. But:

a) only after the real models are all done
b) if enough info can be found
c) I will make a gameworld specific switch that allows me to set "prototypes yes/no" for each game world (= others may then have themm, others may not, depending on what's chosen)

I actually ordered a huge bunch of Jane's books just the other week to get some missing info and they may also help in this.

United Aircraft Corporation has the Il-96-400M and the Il-96-300 listed together along with a pretty good history of both programs. He is a link to the technical data that UAC has on their website too. http://www.uacrussia.ru/en/models/civil/il_96/performance/

Great to hear this. Looking forward to seeing some planes get some use in AWS that were cast aside, for one reason or another, in the real world.
