17:15 02/03/2012 Russia’s modernized Ilyushin Il-76MD-90A aircraft, also known as the Il-476, will conduct its maiden flight by the end of June, Ulyanovsk-based Aviastar aircraft maker said on Friday.>>
This aircraft is one of the largest transport aircraft in the world. It looks a lot like the old US C-141 StarLifter, but it is substantially larger. Two 23mm cannon can even be mounted in the tail.

Rightardia has seen some amazing videos of the Candid aircraft when it is used in airborne operations.
