About the Antonov An-22 Antei

Designed as a heavy military transport aircraft, the Antonov An-22 “Antei” is one of the largest airplanes ever made. It is powered by four Kuznetsov engines capable of lifting 80,000 kg (176,370 lb) maximum payload for a distance of 5,000 km (3100 mi). Its high-mounted wings provide excellent ground clearance for loading the 639 m³ of cargo space designed to haul four Soviet BMD-1 armored combat vehicles.

The An-22 remains the heaviest and largest turboprop aircraft in existence, with the ability to operate from rugged and unpaved runways. Its primary use is the Russian Air Force, and it has participated in numerous humanitarian airlifts and military operations around the globe.

Fun fact: The An-22 is the first wide-body transport airplane and the heaviest until the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy.

The AN-22 is one of the largest aircraft ever made.
