The An-12BK-PPS was not exported to allied countries, with one exception – the Indian Air Force received 4 aircraft of this type. It was extensively used in service until the end of the 1980s. The type mostly served along the USSR’s borders during military training. After the break-up of the Soviet Union, the An-12BK-PPS remained in service only in the Russian Air Force. Several machines are still in service today.

  1. I think, some of the descriptions are wrong.
    Example: “An-26 is a modification of An-24” the pic shows an AN-22. But still: Nice pictures 🙂

  2. I’m starting to HATE the video of the day! Everytime I open another page of this , otherwise excellent, website that tune starts!!
