|PZL Swidnik SM-2|
The SM-2, a Polish development of the basic design was flown late in 1959. This has a longer nose, thereby enlarging the cabin to accommodate 4 passengers in addition to the pilot. In the ambulance role, the SM-2 can take a third stretcher inside the cabin in addition to the two carried on external panniers. Production of the SM-2 was initiated in 1961 to fulfil both military and civil orders.
