The Il-76MD-90A is a deeply modernized version of Russia’s world-famous Il-76 aircraft, featuring a fully-digital flight control system, new avionics and PS-90A-76 engines with improved fuel efficiency systems.

In general, the Russian-Kazakh military technical cooperation is quite stable. In 2015, the sides signed an agreement that allows the Armed Forces of Kazakhstan to buy military equipment from Russia at the same prices it is bought by the Russian military.
