Antonov An-188

Aviation / Aerospace

The Antonov An-188 was announced at Paris Air Show 2015, a turbofan-powered version of the An-70.

The Antonov An-188 is a proposed turbofan-powered version of the company's An-70 medium-lift hauler (detailed elsewhere on this site). The An-70, a post-Cold War era development by Ukraine, achieved a first-flight on December 16th, 1994 and has seen on-again, off-again development since - only two prototypes have been completed to date (2017). The design utilizes a high wing arrangement with four "propfan" engines for propulsion.

The An-188 proposal replaces the propfan approach with 4 x Progress D436FM turbofan engines delivering up to 18,078lb of thrust each unit (or similar Western offering). This provides greater cargo-hauling capabilities and improved performance. It is said that the An-188 would have capabilities between that of the Lockheed C-130 and Boeing C-17 Globemaster III transport series of the United States Air Force (USAF). Sources state it would be a direct competitor to the French Airbus Military A400M Atlas high-winged military transport.

Announced at the 2015 Paris Air Show, there appears to be little, if any, work completed on the An-188 proposal. As such, much of the structural and performance figures on this page are estimated on the part of the author.
