1. Russia is not our main customer.

Of course Russia is the biggest customer of Antonov. Most Antonovs are flying for russian airlines or russian airforce.
Saudis had the money also before. Why should they now spend their money to Antonov?

Antonov Company has received more money from the modernization of 105 An-32 of the Indian Air Force than from royalties for the An-148 and An-140 that were produced in Russia.

In previous years, we didn't have joint projects in the aviation industry.

Good-bye Russia. India's aerospace industry chooses Ukraine

Quote:
Ukraine is doing more than USD 100 million in annual defense business with India, and aims to increase it to USD 500 million in the next three years.
A sensational event for both Ukraine and the world happened in India but it was unfortunately by-passed in the headlines of the Ukrainian press. Despite this fact, during the Defexpo India 2016 in Goa the country's ministry of defence along with several companies signed more than a dozen memorandums for the manufacturing of 500 transport planes as well as the supply of gas turbines for Indian warships. This took place in light of the previously frozen joint project with Russia about the development of a transport warplane Multi-role Transport Aircraft (MTA) and the rejection from the Russian side to service the ships.
The Defexpo India 2016 theme covers the manufacturing and development of weapons for ground forces and army naval forces, including air defence, army aviation as well as dual-use products.
The exhibition is pivotal for the whole of South and Southeast Asia. It is held every two years and this was the ninth exhibition to date. More than 600 companies from around the world take part in the exhibit. The Defexpo India 2016 display area is about 40 thousand square metres.
The Ukrainian delegation was headed by the government-owned "Ukroboronprom". They showcased nearly 40 kinds of products, developed and made in Ukraine. The Director General of "Ukroboronprom" Roman Romanov says the concern "has a significant capacity to fulfil large orders, to produce innovative weapons; and is fully open to cooperation in all fields."
Within the framework of the exhibition, the Ukrainian delegation conducted eight successful negotiations with the Minister of Defence of India and the country's top military command.
According to the Russian press, Ukraine's success came as the result of ‘aggressive marketing of Ukrainian delegation.' But despite undisguised toxicity towards Ukraine, some Russian aviation industry experts gave quite a number of positive comments.
But media coverage of the Defexpo India 2016 is not the main point here. Deals which were sealed at the exhibition are more important.
Indian Reliance Defence Ltd and Ukrainian state aircraft manufacturer Antonov agreed on joint construction of multipurpose transport aircraft for the needs of the military, paratroopers and also for the commercial use in India. It is about 500 planes with a total value of 5.3 billion dollars to be made during 15 years.
Reliance Defence Ltd said in a statement the firms would "jointly address various requirements, including 50-80 seat passenger aircraft in their basic configurations and in transport, maritime patrol and other military variants."
The location of aircraft production is already defined. It is India's first integrated Aerospace Park at Mihan, Nagpur, central India. Government of India has a special strategic concept in this area - to construct everything on its territory.
This efficiency is yet another slap in the face of Russia. While the Russians theorize about the "import substitution", India is able to make decisions and act; to do everything with its own labour force, and to import only technology and service of professionals.
The partnership with Ukrainian specialists and their technologies covers the design of fixed wing military aircraft, configured for use in tactical as well strategic roles. Powered by two turbo-fan engines, the medium lift aircraft can operate on short field runways as also unpaved surfaces.

Indian Air Force and Navy currently has more than 100 Ukrainian made AN-32 transport aircraft and is in the process of upgrading its fleet.

2. Saudi sheikhs don't have money to splash around anymore, they just asked a 10 billion dollar loan to cover budget shortfalls. http://www.wsj.com/articles/saudi-ar...all-1461148491
3. Russia is still Ukraines largest trading partner, go figure. http://www.bloomberg.com/visual-data...ners-countries

Maybe you should ask the French how their deal with India for the Rafale is going, they won the tender in 2011 and are still working through the contract. Don't expect those 500 planes to be rolling off the productions lines anytime soon.

A series of demonstration flights for Indian Reliance Defence Limited.

On Wednesday, April 27th, two companies signed a partnership agreement to design and manufacture civil and military planes based on An-148/An-158. The potential volume is around 500 new planes.

Moreover, modernization of Indian Air Force’s An-32 is on it’s way.

New York Times

Aviation Giant Is Nearly Grounded in Ukraine

By NEIL MacFARQUHAR OCT. 11, 2014

KIEV, Ukraine — The sprawling campus where the Antonov company once designed and built prototypes of the world’s largest transport aircraft — flying whales whose very bulk symbolized Soviet might — lacks buzz these days.

A few derelict airplanes sit along the weed-choked apron connecting its huge construction hangars; cats saunter through the muted assembly shops; flight simulators sit empty.

The crisis with Russia that erupted in February terminated Antonov’s most promising, albeit already troubled, joint venture: a short-takeoff, heavy-lift plane that the Russian military had sought for years.

Antonov was not alone. With the rupture, Ukraine, among the world’s top 10 arms exporters, lost the market that spurred the development of its military industry.

Economic and military experts said Antonov’s troubles epitomized the twin problems plaguing state-run companies in Ukraine, particularly the military sector, as it tries to slip Russia’s gravitational pull and hitch its fortunes to Europe.

First, Ukraine inherited flagship industrial plants like Antonov with the disintegration of the Soviet Union in 1991, but neither the government nor the companies tried to reorient sales. Russia remained the primary focus, so this year’s rift set scores of companies adrift.

Second, state-run firms never abandoned their love of central planning. Antonov and other companies avoided shattering the Soviet organizational model, still awaiting state requisitions. Even now, experts noted, Antonov is locked in a bitter, paralyzing court battle over which arm of the Ukrainian bureaucracy controls it.


“Antonov is Ukraine’s calling card. It built the most powerful transport planes that beat all the world records,” said Valentyn Badrak, an independent Ukrainian military analyst. “Losing it would be like cutting off an arm.”

The government should sell shares and order many planes to ensure that Antonov survives, Mr. Badrak said, adding: “The issue of developing Ukraine’s aircraft industry is beyond the capacity of Antonov’s management. It depends on the government.”

With the signing of a cease-fire in early September, attention is shifting from the war for control of southeastern Ukraine to the country’s economic crisis, which is severe. The economy is expected to shrink by more than 6.5 percent this year, according to the International Monetary Fund, which is keeping Ukraine afloat with an $18 billion loan over the next two years.

Yet, at just under 50 percent, government spending as a percentage of gross domestic product is among the highest in the world — and an indication of how far the government has to go to establish something like a free-market economy.

Antonov might be considered Exhibit A of the problems Ukraine must overcome.

Oleg Antonov, a Russian flight enthusiast, organized an airplane design company owned by the Soviet state in 1946 and directed it until 1984. He had a knack for making hardy passenger planes that could survive crude, often unpaved Soviet airfields. The Soviet government asked him to create military transport planes, and for a time, Antonovs formed the bulk of the fleet.

In the 1980s, two planes — first the Antonov-124 Ruslan and then the even bigger Antonov-225 Mriya — lifted record-breaking cargoes. With their trademark open noses, they have transported rockets and railroad cars and battle tanks. Designed as the Soviet Union waned, only one AN-225 was ever built.

While design was done at the Antonov complex in Kiev, production was scattered across the former Soviet Union. (Antonov did not start building planes commercially until 2009, when the government merged it with a failing state-run aircraft builder.)

Lately, though, the company has fallen on hard times. By its own account, Antonov built just four airplanes last year: three small passenger jets for Cubana, Cuba’s national airline, and one for North Korea’s Air Koryo. So far this year, it has delivered only two more small planes to Cuba.....

Yeah, the article is from October 2014. Anything older than that?

orangutangulis is a Russian troll.

Firstly, this article has been here in the past year: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=1228

Trolls have to coordinate their actions.

Secondly, the journalist is an absolute idiot.

Rendered into a single sentence this would read:

"Antonov declared a profit in 2015 and in 2014 prior to its FINAL LIQUIDATION by the Ukranian Government in February 2016"

Fear the Ghost of Spamtanov.

I think it's bad when someone's brains 'have been liquidated'.

You don't understand that the Government has decided to liquidate the Antonov Concern (not Antonov Company). Antonov Concern & Antonov Company are different concepts. Are you confused in terms and names that are unfamiliar to you. Antonov Company continues to work as part of another state concern (Ukroboronprom). All the companies, that were part of the Antonov Concern, were transferred to Ukroboronprom. All of them will continue to work within the new concern.
