Seeing the An-72/71 mentioned in another post made me think of something I read many years ago. ISTR mention of a COD variant of maybe the An-28 proposed for the Kuznetsov & another AWACS proposal besides the An-71, & it was to be based on the An-26 or An-32 or something. Was this just some mis- or dis-information back then?
The book Unflown Wings makes no mention of any AWACS version of the An-26 or An-28, so the rumor mentioned in the thread could be disinformation.
The An-124 only,which intended as AWACS aircraft.remained a Project only.
