Description

The Antonov An-26 is a twin-engined light turboprop military transport aircraft, designed and produced in the USSR from 12 March 1968.

After successful operations of the An-24T tactical transport in austere locations, interest in a version with a retractable cargo ramp increased.

Initial studies for the retractable ramp were carried out as part of the projected An-40 medium transport.

When given the go-ahead for the An-26 in March 1968 the Antonov OKB adapted the ramp design of the An-40 to the An-24 fuselage, and thus was born the An-26.

Using the majority of the An-24 airframe, with its high-set cantilevered wings, twin turboprops and stalky main undercarriage, the An-26 included military equipment, such as tip-up paratroop canvas seats, overhead traveling hoist, bulged observation windows and parachute static line attachment cables.
