New Antonov AN-132 transport unveiled (photos)

Its essentially a modernized AN-32 with western avionics and engines and a redesigned fuselage. Saudi Arabia has already placed a large order for them. Good looking little plane...

"AN-132 is based on the airframe of the aircraft AN-26 / AN-32, but uses the Western system of production: turboprop engines Pratt & Whitney Canada PW150A with six-bladed composite propellers Dowty Propellers R408, APU Hamilton Sundstrand, a complex on-board avionics Honeywell Primus Epic integrated Modular Avionic system 2.0, Crouzet cabin management system, crew seats Ipeco, Zodiac integrated oxygen system, life support systems (SLE IPS, SARD) Liebherr Aerospace."

So they grafted the nose of an An-72 onto the An-32, and fitted it with the engines of the Q-400. And they managed to do go all the way from project announcement to rollout in just a year. :roll:

But at least it looks good :D

It does look great, and kind of familiar of other modern transport planes as well...

Looks awesome! But the nose profile looks radically different from the An-32's i have seen.

Wonder if Antonov can offer some refit programme for existing An32 operators. The Indian Air Force operates 100+ of these which are ageing.

A modernised AN32 with PW150 engines could just see these workhorses soldier on for another 30 years with the IAF!

It's the An-72 / -74 nose. It's not going to be retrofittable. But a glass cockpit should be possible, if it wasn't for the fact that India has recently upgraded it's An-32s.

Looking at the wings and engine mountings, it looks more like an An-24 development than an An-32. Retrofitting the underwing-mounted PW-150 to the An-32 which has over-wing mounted engines might be problematic.

Here in the states, that would take *at least* five years at the very minimum.

That's my worry as well. They went from project announcement to final assembly in just 6 months, and roll-out after another 6. That's just too little to properly test and certify the design. Short-cuts must have been made somewhere in the process. Even Airbus and Boeing couldn't stuff 10 additional seats into a 737 or A320 in that little time.

Well it's probably not certified and will only be certified to some form of military standard, not an EASA/FAA certified passenger plane.

Maybe that would be a nice tactical lift for some of our European airforces, and perhaps even better than the Hercs in France and (probably) Germany
