Hungary decommissioned the last military transport An-26

The last Soviet-made An-26 military transport aircraft was withdrawn from the Hungarian Air Force. According to the Ukrainian Military Portal, the ceremony was held at Kecskemét air base.


The national air forces of Hungary no longer have the An-26 military transport aircraft. All aircraft of this type, which were in service with the country's air force, are decommissioned. Farewell ceremony with the last of the An-26 was held at one of the air bases.

As reported, until recently, the aircraft was in operation as part of the 59th air base. In general, the aircraft stayed in the service for 46 years.


Currently, the Hungarian military are considering several options for replacing the Soviet An-26, but there are no Ukrainian aircraft among them, as well as Russian ones. Among the options are the Italian-American tactical military transport aircraft Leonardo C-27J, the American military transport aircraft medium and long range Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules and a light turboprop transport aircraft developed by the Airtech consortium led by the Spanish company CASA and the Indonesian company Industri Pesawat Terbang Nusantara EADS CASA C-295.

An-26 light military transport multi-purpose aircraft was developed at OKB Antonov Design Bureau. It is intended for the carriage of goods on lines of short and medium length. It has a ramp load carrier, the ramp of which serves as a ramp for the entry of equipment or rolls under the fuselage for loading directly from the car body.

The first departure of the An-26 cargo plane took place on May 21, 1969. An-26 family aircraft were mass-produced in Kiev at the Kiev Aviation Production Association from 1969 to 1986. A total of 1398 aircraft were produced, of which 420 were exported.

      And then the owner? Or do you think that the aircraft offered by European and American manufacturers are obviously worse than ours? In your opinion, all those who refused to purchase Russian-made military equipment are US hangovers?

        They may not be worse, but here is the price. Hungary is France or Germany, they have a modest budget

      Unfortunately, they are not there yet. Neither Russian nor Ukrainian. For myself, not like export. We bring these - and remain barefoot. I took a photo 35 years ago.

      And how much is RUSSIAN in it? He is still SOVIET. Yes, and already outdated both morally and physically ...
      It will be a big holiday for me when they will be removed from service with us, and the Il-112 will fly instead. But, I don’t hear anything about the continuation of the tests, the dates of the second flight were called in the spring, and it was already mid-summer, so I had to wait a long time for the holiday

      And what can Russia offer them in exchange for the An-26? We would have to replace ours. IL-112, a contender for this niche, is only still born great in agony.

      Not 30, but almost 50 years. It is said that the aircraft lasted 46 years.

    And how much can Hungary afford these planes? I think 2-3, it was in Soviet times that the USSR HANDED PLANES TO ALLIES, and now it’s not a shame to make money on allies

        I am sure:
        The annual volume of exports of arms, military equipment, including spare parts, components, the creation of special facilities, which amounted to 1981-1989. an average of 6-10 billion US dollars, have become inaccessible to intermediaries. The structure of payments by foreign buyers for Russian exports continued to be extremely unbalanced. Payments in freely convertible currency and oil did not exceed 10-15%, the share of special state loans reached 60%, and gratuitous assistance (free supplies of weapons and military equipment, other military property) consistently accounted for at least 30% of the total volumes of special exports.

        You somehow think one-sidedly, to begin with the fact that they also helped the Wehrmacht. This is so for thought. And by the way, who secured the bulk of supplies, and, accordingly, profits, and jobs, and financial flow into the country's economy? But the USSR provided hi who still needed these ekaruses in such volumes, Europe or what? Nude nude. In addition, we supplied Hungary with a bunch of other equipment in "revenge", for example Lada. So the feeder was replenished with us and everyone hawali and waited for the addition, that's it.

            Did I say that I don't like Icarus? Not well, in general, they smelled like diesel fuel inside "good". Yes, that's not the point. I didn’t write a word against ikarus at all, you need to read carefully, and not listen to your inner voice laughing "Normal trade" is, as you put it, without it this industry in Hungary would not have gone far, and in such a volume the demand could only be offered by the USSR "So what?" I already wrote this, the brains must be turned on. Before commenting in response, delve into the essence of turning off your emotional urges. hi parents will chew it for children.

      They bet on watermelon 295. Cheap, economical, very versatile with a convertible interior. Moreover, you can get a credit / installment plan on the Euroline, this is well set up at the Airbus. The Czechs, for example, replaced their An-26 with 295, the Poles are also happy with the purchase.



      Spartan is imprisoned for transporting equipment, so it is so plump, voracious and expensive. The Hungarians have nothing to carry. And when necessary, they hire outsourcing.

      Hercule is, of course, a legend, but he is still bolshevat. Although I do not exclude that they will take it, especially if used. Cheap and good opportunities, but again, the Hungarians simply do not really load them.

        One friend of mine who graduated from Air War College said that operating one Hercy costs three F-16s, so it’s not cheap.

    It's a shame that all the measures that our government takes lead to opposite results from expectations!
    Budget saving - underfunding of research and development.
    The budget rule is financing the US economy ..
    Supercentralization of governing bodies in the UAC is the addition of another link with its small staff to intermediaries between the manufacturer and the buyers, which ultimately affects the price of the finished product and competitiveness ...
    And so in everything ... From time to time you want, dream and want to return a tough scenario of economic management, such as under the leader of the world proletariat I.V. Stalin .... with all the ensuing consequences. But will we survive it? Not a country, Russia will only benefit from this, but we, those who mow from the army, go to work to get money, heal not from diseases, but to suck money from a person, teach not professions, but work out the curriculum, again for money , gives and takes "thanks" for the services, or for the fact that it seems as if he had not seen something ...
    And the most annoying thing is that everyone sees and understands all this, but they either don’t want to change or can’t ...
    Read the works of V.I. Lenin ... maybe revolution is not necessary? Maybe you can, without blood, turn to face your country in a civilized manner recourse

        Again "... we will destroy to the ground, and then ..."? In 1917 it was destroyed and how many years it was restored, in 1991 too, we still rake it. Not to mention how many human lives each revolution costs.

      Well done Hungarians. Normally and civilized, they said goodbye to the whole era of their BTA - given that the An-26 is a hard worker and really worth it. And the point is not what they will buy in the future, the point is that we have nothing to offer them. Alas...
