Soviet CANDID Dropping Troops and Equipment
by Richard J. Terry, 1978

The Il-76 CANDID jet transport, which could carry 140 troops or 40 tons of cargo, entered service in the mid-1970s to help meet the USSR's worldwide military airlift requirements. With over 600 of these aircraft, the USSR could rapidly concentrate its aircraft to support military operations anywhere on the Soviet periphery, as they did in December 1979 in Afghanistan.
