Three-view drawing of Antonov An-80. Derived from the Antonov An-72/An-74?

Very interesting. So, the An-80 was slightly longer than the An-72 - no big surprise with the new rear fuselage. But why, I wonder, the shorter-span (30.1 m versus 31.89 m) unswept wings?

My first instinct was to say those are derived from the first An-72 prototype, but I seem to recall those had leading edge sweep. I can't help but notice these wings are similar to the YC-14 ones.

I attempted to correct perspective and lens distortion.
A little bit :cool:
Enjoy!
