The Antonov An-74 (NATO reporting name Coaler) is a transport aircraft developed in the former Soviet Union. It was designed as a STOL transport and intended as a replacement for the Antonov An-26, but variants have found success as commercial freighters. An unusual design feature of the An-74 is the use of the Coand? effect to improve STOL performance, utilizing engine exhaust gases blown over the wing's upper surface to boost lift. The first flight was made in August 31, 1977, but it was only in the 1980s that production started.
This highly detailed Antonov 74-200 3D model comes with detailed animated flaps system, spoilers, slats and stabilizer slats. All other flightcontrols like elevator, dubbel ailerons and rudder are cutted out and ready for animation.
