The possibility of equipping the local airport with air defense systems was also discussed. Total number of soldiers and their families transferred will probably amount to approximately 1,500 people.

Russia. Ilyushin Il-76 aircraft moved to a new location

The planes that Russia decided to transport to a new location are four-engine Soviet jet transport aircraft, designed by the design office of Ilyushin. The prototype first flew in 1971, and serial production began in 1974 at the TAPO plant located in in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

The Soviet Union used these planes transported 786,200 soldiers to Afghanistan and 315,800 tons of cargo. Since these planes are designed for high flights, it is very difficult to shoot them down during flights. This is why in Afghanistan partisans attacked them during take-off or landing. The durable airframes, however, were almost indestructible and even they continued to function properly after the attacks.
