The development of military transport aircraft (MTC) An-70 intended to replace the An-12, began in 1986 After seven years of tactical and technical requirements specified, wherein, based on the need to transport a medium tank, the maximum capacity of the machine increased up to 47 T. the Peculiarity of the aircraft were four gas-turbine engine with coaxial propeller-fans and fly-by-wire control system In aircraft design is widely used composite materials. The first flight of the An-70 took place on 16 December 1994 10 February 1995 and the plane crashed. To continue testing built a second model, testing and refinement which is ongoing.
An-70 is designed to carry 110 paratroopers or up to 300 fighters with personal weapons, or 206 wounded. The aircraft can be widely used in civil aviation. Was developed on the basis of: transport An-70T with the crew

Engines D-27 with a capacity of 14 000 E. L. with a Wingspan of 44,06 m. the length of the plane — 40,73 m Height 16.38 m Maximum take — off weight- 130 t Maximum mass of payload is 47, so cruise speed — 750 — 800 km/h. Practical flight range with payload of 30 t — 5000 km, ferry — 9800 km, Required runway length of 1800 — 2200 m. Takeoff distance at take-off weight of 95 t does not exceed 350 m, and the range — 330 m Crew — 3 — 5 people.
