Description: The Ilyushin Il-38, May NATO name, is an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and maritime patrol aircraft derived from the stretched fuselage of the Il-18 turboprop airliner which first flew in 1957. The first fly of the militarized Il-38 occurred on September 28, 1961 and the aircraft was fully operational with the Soviet Navy by 1967. It is powered by four AI-20M turboprop engines driving four-blade propellers. Each engine is rated at 4,190-shp of power. The Il-38 was deployed by the Soviet Union and exported to India in the 1970s. After the collapse of the Soviet Union the Il-38 aircraft were split among Community of Independent States (CIS) members primarily Russia and Ukraine. In 2010 the Il-38 along with the Tu-142 remain the backbone maritime patrol capability of Russia and India. The Il-114MP maritime patrol aircraft is a potential replacement for the Il-38.

The Russian Air Force Il-22PP Porubshchik, Tree Cutter in English, is an electronic warfare (EW) aircraft capable of suppressing state-of-the-art air defense systems such as the Patriot. Originally known as the Izdelie L-415, the aircraft is capable of disabling the most modern EW and electronic systems mounted on aircraft, air defenses and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) started the development of the Il-22PP in the late 2000s based upon the Il-18 passenger airliner. The first Il-22PP aircraft prototype complete state trials in October 2016 and is expected to enter service with the Russian Air Force before the end of 2017. Nevertheless, the main problem of this new EW aircraft is the airframe itself which as stated in July 2018 will force the Russian Air Force to develop an improved Porubshchik-2 based upon the Tu-214 or Il-476 airframe.
