Ukraine’s Antonov, which is a part of Ukrainian defence industry holding company UkrOboronProm,  will officially unveil a new An-132D transport and special mission aircraft at the  International Paris Air Show “LE BOURGET 2017”.

According to UkrOboronProm officials, during the exhibition there are planned demonstration An-132D flights, as well as presentation of other “Antonov” programs. UOP delegation is headed by the Director General of the State Concern Roman Romanov.

The An-132 is essentially a modernised version of the Soviet-era An-32 ‘Cline’ transport aircraft that features a number of Western systems, including its Pratt & Whitney Canada PW150A turboprop engines. Once development is complete, the aircraft will be jointly manufactured in both Ukraine and Saudi Arabia, with the latter expected to field up to 80 of the type (though the Royal Saudi Air Force has to date only committed itself to buying six, with four to be used for search and rescue and two for electronic warfare).

In addition, 10 UKROBORONPROM enterprises will represent their products and projects in France.Concern invite you to visit Ukrainian expo (Hall 6, Stand A54), to learn more about offers and products of the SC “UkrOboronProm” and communicate with UOP representatives.
