New Antonov AN-132 transport unveiled (photos)

Sun Jan 08, 2017 6:32 pm

http://bmpd.livejournal.com/2335238.html

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

Nice looking bird, hopefully it will do well. How many have been sold?
Many happy landings, greetings from The Netherlands!

Hello: If authorities consider that this a/c may apply for grandfather rights respect to An-32?, certification process will be short. This is very common, for instance with B737 MAX, which have so few in common with a B737-100

If they took An-24/32 frame, added PW engines and avionics - it would be entirely possible.
To me it looks like the old good AN-24. The nose is irrelevant.
I would be happy if it helps Antonov to survive.
I am on EK 231/232. The rest is just jet lag.

Looks to be a rugged, dependable platform, especially in the Maritime Patrol role. If design quirks, early teething issues and after sales support are adequately addressed, then Antonov would have a modern, westernized, compact competitor against the CN235/C295, and a cheaper alternative vs the Spartan. Production outside Ukraine could sidestep the political situation there (hopefully without raising its price much)...and pave the way for further export orders. With Saudi financing, all that may just be achievable. Antonov/Taqnia might have a winner in their hands as a result :!:

come to think of it the Chinese An-24-based MA aircraft is also equipped with PW engine?

The Xian MA60 and MA600 both use the PW-127 that also powers the ATR.

While the An-132D looks much like the An-140.....

Hopefully, it wouldn't suffer the same problems as the latter and that the similarities would end there. :crossfingers:

Good luck with this new type, Antonov. Should be a very fast and powerful little plane.

Antonov An-132D transport aircraft makes first flight

Thu Apr 06, 2017 6:04 am

Link/Source: http://atwonline.com/airframes/antonov- ... 5dbf949196


"The aircraft, which was rolled out in Kyiv at the end of December 2016, is a modernized version of the Soviet-built An-32 developed in the 1970s."

"The An-132D is intended to operate on short- and medium-haul routes, the manufacturer said in a statement. “The new aircraft will perform a variety of tasks, such as the transportation of raw materials, mail and other cargo, including bulk cargo […] and light self-propelled and non-self-propelled vehicles weighing up to 9.2 tonnes."

Are there any governments / militaries that have orders placed.
Will this aircraft sell and what is it's closest competition?

Wow. Love the 'mean' look that comes by putting an An-140 nose on the mighty An-32. Certainly a powerful, capable beast. Kudos to Antonov!

It is most impressive what Antonov can do. Currency crisis? No problem. War in 1/3rd of their country? No problem. Largest customer (Russia) slashing orders? No problem, we'll sell to the Saudis and work with the Chinese...

Congrats to Antonov and I hope that they keep making some of the most amazing aircraft in the world!
