Antonov An-32, NATO name Cline, is a Soviet air freighter. The machine is laid out as Hochdecker. The basic draft comes from Antonov An-26. Like these it has engines and a retractable chassis two turbo-prop. -.
Distinguishers are the substantially increased and more highly engine cars installed at the wing and the larger four-sheet propellers. Under the tail cone is an increased stabilizer. The machines are particularly appropriate for the use of high-altitude or particularly hot airfields (to 50 °C with 4.500 m height). It has an air-conditioned pressurized cabin. In order to be independent of Bodenausrüstung, the machine has an APU. The avionics permits the employment in the controlled air space.
The prototype Antonov An-32 flew for the first time to 9. July 1976. The type is used also from different armed forces to tasks of transportation. Different variants exist. Can be transported depending upon version up to 50 passengers, 42 soldiers, 38 paratroopers or 24 couches for wounded one. The standard design is An-32B. Antonov An-32P is a fire-extinguishing airplane, which can transport litres of fire extinguishing agent up to 8.000 and set also 30 firefighters off by parachute (Smokejumper). At the trunk attached MP-26 makes it possible to inoculate clouds with chemicals in order to bring it to the Abregnen. This type is used in Spain and Portugal.
In the freight execution thereby goods up to 11 m length and a total weight (depending upon execution) between 6.800 - 7,500 kg can be transported. The machine has thereby a loading door and/or a ramp slinging means own in the tail and, which can lift up to 3 tons. In the soil ball elements can be installed, which make an easy handling for the charge possible.
The An-32B-100 is a variant with higher additional load and takeoff weight. Modified engines (AI-20D5M) with an extended MTBO improved economy.
The An-32V-200 be based on the An-32V-100, shows however profound improvements. The cockpit permits the enterprise with only 2 to men crew. If necessary installable, external auxiliary tanks of 3.000 l capacity permit a range up to 3.200 km. The total assignment was extended to 25 years. The Wartungsintervalle were arranged variable according to the use profile.
At present (2/2005) still nearly everything of the 356 manufactured machines is in the employment, many of it in developing countries, as for instance in India, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, Afghanistan as well as in a number of African countries.
