    You will see more delays, mark my words. Reality catches up with all projects eventually.

    If they say delivery is next year, then you can be sure some jets are in production already.

    That was back in 2014. A year's delay is nothing in such a massive project. Especially when even RuAF is matching IAF's requirement now.

    There are risks associated with going straight to DAs instead of prototypes.

    first 3 Il-22PP "Porubschik" to air force. It could disable enemy electronic systems aboard their planes and able to blind enemy AWACs.
