The Ilyushin Il-76 transport clearly appears as a military design. Its high wing and strong landing gear give it the ability to operate from airfields with rough or unpaved runways, while its rear loading ramp guarantees easy loading and even air dropping capabilities. On the military side, both an airborne tanker and an early warning version of the Il-76 have been developed.

Nevertheless, the Il-76 can be found in widespread commercial use as a freighter. Comparable in size to the B707 and DC-8, strong demand for medium sized freighters boosted the activities of the Il-76 after the political opening of the former Sovjet Union. Besides CIS airlines carrying both domestic and international freight on Il-76s, the aircraft found also work in Africa, the Far East and Europe. Even British, Swiss and South African airlines are to be found among the carriers operating the Il-76, albeit still under joint-venture agreements with Russian partners.

A stretched version, the Il-76MF equiped with more powerful Perm PS-90 engines, is currently being tested.
