ANTONOV AN-12

The Antonov An-12 proofed to be a very versatile transport aircraft. It was produced in large numbers and is still in extensive use both with Air Forces of the CIS and commercial operators. Its sturdy construction and its rear loading ramp gives the An-12 the capacity to operate in remote areas or from poorly equiped airfields.

In its importance as a crago aircraft in the CIS, it comes only second to the Ilyushin Il-76 jet. Therefore, the An-12 can be observed on Western European an Middle Eastern airports quite frequently.

Besides the standard tranport version, several specialised versions were developed. While the Russian Airforce still maintains a number of An-12 holding electronic sensing and counter measures equipment, other An-12 were used to track weather patterns.
