  1. The IL-76, AN-22 and AN-12 are classic examples of why soviet transport planes are still considered some of the best in the world. Rugged, simple to operate, easy to upgrade and cheep to repair thanks in part to how many of a type were produced making spare parts easy to acquire.

  2. The An-22s where only used in the USSR they never exported them then.Normally contra-rotating props are pretty noisy.The Tu-95 for example NATO From what I understand you can hear them from a distance even inside another aircraft.
