The Ukrainian state enterprise Antonov (based in Kyiv) has offered the United States to organize cooperation to develop a program for a medium-size military transport aircraft, An-77, an upgraded version of the An-70 short takeoff and landing aircraft.

The offer of cooperation was made during a visit to the company’s facilities by a delegation from the U.S. Congress House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, the Antonov spokesperson said on July 4.

By the Ukrainian estimate, the An-77 could take up the niche between the C-130 (payload up to 21 tons), and the C-17 (up to 76 tons).
