HISTORY



Detailing the development and operational history of the Antonov An-24 (Coke) Military Transport Aircraft.  Entry last updated on 6/22/2018. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com.
The An-24 "Coke" was yet another in the long line of military transport aircraft produced during the Cold War by the Antonov bureau. The An-24 differed from earlier Antonov products in that it was designed and built to stricter requirements centered around battlefield conditions, in particular, operations from makeshift runways. Besides being utilized as a military transport, the system could be found in various other roles including humanitarian assistance, general cargo transport and as a VIP passenger transport (up to 52 passengers can be carried in this role).

The An-24 is a twin-engine, turboprop-powered, medium-class type transport. The twin Progress engines, like its other Soviet transport counterparts, are mounted on high-wing monoplane wings and a single rudder fin is fit to the empennage. The system is crewed by a minimum of two personnel and the aircraft reportedly can reach out to nearly 400 miles of operational service. China produces their own version of the An-24 as the Xian Y-7 and several still serve in transport functions with former Eastern Bloc nations. The An-24RT variant became the basis for a developmentally improved design in the An-26 "Curl".
