In the late 1990s Russian Prime Minister Yevgeniy Primakov signed the deal in Austria about cooperation between MiG and Austria on production of light multi-purpose aircraft, MiG-110. MiG-110 is twin engine aircraft, which can transport up to 3.5 tons of cargo or 24-48 passengers over the distance of 1,600 km. The aircraft would have excellent rough air field capabilities, and would cost 30 to 50 per cent less than similar foreign aircraft. The aircraft's components would be produced in Russia, with final assembly in Austria. Austria would also invest into testing and certification of the plane.

A paramilitary version on MiG-110 may also be developed. This version would include longer range, 360 degree surveillance radar, an infrared line scanner, and FLIR system. Flight endurance is about 6 hours. In May 2003, the Il-112VT was selected as the Russian Air Force's next-generation airlifter, beating the RSK MiG MiG-110, Sukhoi S-80 and a Tupolev design.
