Developed from Yakovlev Yak-42

The Yakovlev Yak-46 was a suggested aircraft design based on the Yak-42 with two contra-rotating propellers on the propfan located at the rear, just like the McDonnell Douglas MD-94X. The specification of the Samara turbofans was in the 11,000-kg/24250-lb thrust range. [1] Though proposed in the 1990s, production of the Yak-46 never commenced.[2]
