The Russian commercial aircraft manufacturer Irkut Corporation awarded the United Technology subsidiary Hamilton Sundstrand a contract to develop and provide parts for their new airliner. The contract could be worth over $2 billion dollars in the end. The MS-21 (MC in the Cyrillic Alphabet) will be a joint development of various Russian aircraft corporations to be in service sometime around 2015.

This aircraft will replace the aging fleet of Tupelov manufactured Tu-154 airliners. Irkut has also received contracts to build parts for Airbus as well as work with Yakalov on their Yak-130 aircraft. Hamilton Sundstrand will produce electrical generators and systems as well as the Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) and other systems for the advanced aircraft.
