Antonov AN-32 “CLINE”

The Antonov-32 “Cline” was the natural successor of the Antonov-26 “Curl”. It was designed to operate in high altitude and very warm conditions, and it is very well conditioned for operations on poorly prepared runways. It mounts the same engines used in larger transport models such as the Antonov 12 “Cub” or IIlyushin 18 “Coot”, which allows them to operate on tracks up to 4,500 meters above sea level. This model achieved several world records for his loaded climbing ability and his sustained altitude flight. It carries panels with rollers for the extraction of loads by means of parachutes. It has been a remarkable sales success with almost 400 aircraft built in its more than 35 years of career with 20 air forces from around the world. There are specialized versions for maritime patrol or another for firefighting missions designed as “Firekiller”.
