A Ukraine-based aircraft manufacturer that has concentrated on building transport aircraft. These range from the large, rugged An-2 biplane through the An-28 reconnaissance aircraft to the massive An-124 and An-225 cargo carriers. Whilst less famous, the An-24, An-26 and An-30 series of twin turboprop, high winged, passenger transport aircraft are important for domestic air services particularly in parts of the world once led by communist governments. The An-72 and An-74 series of small jetliners is slowly replacing that fleet and a larger An-70 freighter is under development. The latter is outwardly similar to the Airbus A400M design that has yet to fly in western Europe.
