Antonov Taqnia An-132

The Antonov Taqnia An-132 was a refined iteration of the Antonov An-32 twin-engine turboprop military transport aircraft, developed through a collaborative effort between Saudi Arabia and Ukraine.

The An-132 is set to be equipped with two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW150 turboprop engines, Honeywell avionics, a Liebherr air management system, and a Hamilton Sundstrand-supplied Auxiliary Power Unit (APU).

The prototype was unveiled in Kyiv on 20 December 2016, and subsequently underwent its maiden flight from Antonov’s factory at Sviatoshyn Airfield to their test centre at Antonov Airport on 31 March 2017.

Deliveries are slated to commence in 2018, with an approximate cost of $30 million per aircraft and a projected production total of 260-295 aircraft by 2035 from Ukrainian and Saudi production lines. Regrettably, the project was terminated in April 2019.
