I believe Aeroflot ordered 20 of these aircraft-10 passenger, 10
freighter sometime this year. They are fitted with PW2037 and rockwell
avionics. Since the aircraft has western engines it is going to be far
more reliable, consume less fuel. But the reliability of other components
and immediate availability of spare parts is questionable.

Vangal.
