The authors of the unique Russian design are the engineers of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Zhukovsky (TsAGI), where new test benches are currently being tested.
As studies show, planes with two fuselages are easier to take off, they have less bending moments of the wing than conventional ones, and in order to take off they cost less thrust. And they need only three engines, that is, one less.
The loading and unloading of the transport “two-body” will take less time, while the process itself becomes easier and more convenient.
