TYPE: Multi-purpose patrol aircraft
DESCRIPTION: The IL-114MP multi-purpose patrol aircraft is designed for aerial patrolling in littoral and blue water zones, and provides detection, identification, tracking and destruction of underwater and surface targets. The IL-114MP gathers electronic reconnaissance data on underwater and surface vessels. It can also be employed in SAR operations in emergency cases. The crew locates missing persons with the help of the onboard detection systems, and airdrops survival equipment. The IL-114MP is capable of engaging enemy surface vessels from a standoff range. Its ASW capabilities include submarine detection, tracking and engagement, as well as planting of linear mine barriers. The avionics suite includes radar, sonobuoys, magnetic anomaly detection equipment, managing computer system, IR and television imaging system and electronic reconnaissance system. Modular design of the ASW system enables further build-up of additional equipment, including installation of any equipment or subsystems meeting the MIL-STD-1553B standard.
