The Ilyushin/HAL Il-214 Multi-role Transport Aircraft (MTA) is a medium-airlift military transport aircraft which is being developed by Ilyushin of Russia and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and India. The two companies began the joint venture in 2009, when it was expected that each would be investing US$300 million in the project.
The Il-214 will replace Russia and India's fleet of aging An-32 transport aircraft. It is designed to perform regular transport duties and also to deploy paratroopers. The aircraft is expected to conduct its first flight by 2017, and to enter service by 2018.
