    Something strange. It seems to be an impressive list of new equipment, and the ICAO category is only the second. And how can civilian standards be applied to military sides?

      All Western Ukraine works on a "rotational basis". Or in Europe or in Russia. Therefore, if you pay for boiling in Kiev, why not cut the money? Closer to home.

    An-32 is an excellent aircraft. In general, the Antonov school of aerodynamics, one of the best in the world in this class of aircraft. We, in Russia, would also not be hindered by a hundred or two of these machines for the army and for the northern regions.

    There is no desire to politicize this post. From Ukrainian politics and so actively sick, the last week.

      Totally agree with you. An-32 plane-hard worker, is able to land where many could not even dream of.

      It is still preferable to IL 112. It was developed with such a cargo size that a standard civilian container for air transportation would fit in. An32 does not fit in this, but there is no military transport, with ramp, version of the An140 produced in Russia. Only cargo and passenger.

      Well, that’s how it was originally developed for flights in mountain conditions with the corresponding landing strips for the Indians.

      We need to make OUR IL-112. Ukraine is now abroad. And they will not do "a hundred or two"
