The An-22 Antey, the largest turboprop aircraft in the world, was seen the other day in the skies over the base of the Russian Federation Air Force Hmeymim, reports Messenger of Mordovia.


Transport heavyweight An-22 seen above the base Hamim


It is unknown with which cargo the legendary transport worker arrived in Syria.

According to the agency referring to open data, there are currently two veteran aircraft in the ranks in Russia.

Despite its age, and the new car was released about forty years ago, winged heavy trucks continue to perform tasks on a par with more modern transport workers.

“Those who saw this plane live, as a rule, cannot hide their admiration. "Antey" is able to transfer the heaviest cargoes, like the main combat tanks T-90 or vehicles of the S-400 complex, ”writes Lev Romanov, the author of the material.

In total, An-22 can lift weights in 60 tons and deliver them over a distance of more than 5 thousand km at a speed of 560 km / h. Aircraft crew - up to 7 people.

      Gifts are secondary. The main thing, they noticed. It’s impossible not to notice! The sound is characteristic: at it the ends of the propeller blades move with the speed of sound. Dimensions are also good.

          Hello, Sergey!
          It is certainly correct, but it is still necessary to bring Tartus, but how to observe the regime of secrecy? Tea is not a couple of kilometers away, and can decrypt.

                I agree with you, the revival in the Syrian sky forces our military leadership to promptly introduce "new trump cards" in the form of a new modified Tor-M2 module

                or electronic warfare systems, or in the aggregate, which is much more effective, moreover, in the area of ​​the Efrat "triangle".

      A little off topic, but read, it hurts for the living. About Americans in the Far East.
      "According to the author of the article, all the evidence can be found in the local press, as well as in the archives. There are many examples of cruelty. Four people accused of involvement in the partisan movement are said to have been buried alive in the ground. And one partisan’s wife was brutally murdered - “They pierced the body with bayonets and drowned in a garbage pit.” The author of the article (not named) claims that his own elderly father was taken hostage by the allied forces in the village of Kharitonovka. He returned home alive, but was completely bloodied. A few days later he died, and before his death he asked: "Why did they torture me ...?" Five children are said to be orphaned in his family. The article also tells about young people from Vladivostok who were accused of involvement in the partisan struggle. For several days they were "tortured, their teeth were knocked out, their tongues were chopped off."

    Somewhere in the late 80s with my family flew from Kirov to the Ministry of Water. on the Tu-134 and sat in Volgograd for refueling. Then there was something shitty with kerosene in the aeroflot, probably three times they landed in this city in those years. When refueling everyone was kicked out of the plane. those who wanted were taken to the airport. They refueled somewhere on the outskirts, I did not go, I watched how to refuel and bazaar with technicians. And here, about 100 meters away was the 22nd. and started to wind up. First, one engine. then another, and in order. Started up, and probably warmed up for about 10 minutes, then rolled down the taxiway to the take-off, and took off. The sight was certainly impressive.

    I think for anything I brought. I don’t exclude "Tor", "Shell", or something like that ........ on the way back, something will be taken away ...... I think there is something from the damaged equipment.

    The volume of arms shipments to Syria is impressive.
    Ankara has published a figure for the supply of American weapons only to the Kurds - 4900 trucks and 2000 transport aircraft.
    Syria has become one of the most weaponized points on the planet.
