Antonov An-12

Prototype (7900101), built at Irkutsk, flew 16 December 1957, with Kuznetsov NK-4 turboprops, as rear-loading development of An-10 airliner; more than 900 built with AI-20K engines for military and civil use, ending in USSR in 1973; An-12BP ("Cub") was standard medium-range paratroop and cargo transport of Soviet Military Transport Aviation (VTA) from 1959; replacement with Il-76 began 1974, but about 170 remain in air force service, plus at least 25 An-12BK/PP/PPS "Cub-A/B/C/D" electronic warfare conversions in air forces and Naval Aviation. More than 100 (of 183 originally exported) are used by nine other air forces; further 190 flown by some 70 freight airlines. Shaanxi Aircraft Company, China, manufactures redesigned Yunshuji-8 (Y-8) transport version and derivatives.

It's interesting that the Soviets kept putting Tail Gunner positions on their aircraft long after everyone else had stopped. Did they think they were going to be attacked by ME109s or P51s? The glazed nose for a Bombardier or maybe a Navigator also seems a bit out place on a "modern" aircraft. It makes wonder why they didn't add a ball turret and waist gunners as well.

It's day as a military freighter is on the wane, but you can still come across them at airports throghout Europe, Africa and Asia. It is always a delight in these "let's save the Earth times" to see the smokey Kuznetsov engines pushing this veteran into the sky.
