The transport plane AN 12 is designed for cargo carrying along the medium and longer-range routes.

The plane’s fuselage with a somewhat elevated tail and a big cargo hatch ensures the convenient loading and unloading of large-size cargoes, as well as parachute jumping. The on-board loading device with the load-lifting capacity of 2.5 tons and an easily replaceable carrier ensure easier and more speedy handling operations.
