I think you mean a 72 I have never heard of an ATR 82! But they have modified the engines to have a 6 blade prop but that is the 72-500.

I think that this may possibly be a military version of the ATR-72. I have a strong recolection of reading this somewhere.

I'm talking about 82 not 72. I got e-mail today from some guy (Brian Swanson) where his writing:
".....The ATR 52C military freighter with rear loading ramp, and the stretched 80/86-seat Allison AE2100-powered ATR 82 which is scheduled to first fly in 1996....."
Anybody got pics of it?????

ATR-82 simply does not exist. Maybe he confused a version of a ATR-72??

The ATR-82 is one of the many ATR paper-planes that have not been built (at least not up to today). The ATR 52 is in fact a military variant of the 42 with a redesigned tail (loading ramp), but still has to find a launch customer. The improved variant of the 72 is the 72-210, the 42-500 is an improved 42 with more powerfull engines.
