Hello, I’m here to request a really cool aircraft that never got the attention it deserved.
What’s the Tupolev 204?
The Tupolev 204 was the replacement for the very successful Tupolev 154. The aircraft was planned to be an equivalent to the Boeing 757 except with less range and payload capacity. Only 86 of the aircraft have been produced since 1989. Today the aircraft is used for limited cargo and civilian transport.
Why should it be on Infinite Flight?
The reason I want to request this is because there are no Russian Airliners on Infinite Flight and they are some of the most interesting aircraft. The Tupolev 204 would be good for medium range flights and would be a good somewhat historical aircraft to enjoy.
What should be included?
I think two variants of this aircraft would fit infinite flight best.
The -100 and -100C
These are a longer version of the aircraft with improved engines and avionics from the base model. -100C is the cargo variant.
