АN-74Т-200А was released in 2004 on the basis of a multipurpose AN-74T-200 aircraft designed in 1997. AN-74T-200A main difference is the use of digital onboard computer BTsVM90 with 2 multifunctional displays - Flight Management System (FMS) designed by “Elektroavtomatika” Design Bureau (Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation). The aircraft is also equipped with a radar that has 2 coloured displays for two pilots.These and other measures significantly expanded the capabilities of AN-74T-200A according to the modern requirements. Since 2009, modifications of AN-74T-200A are equipped with CN-4312 systems (made by “Orizon-Navigatsiya” (Smela, Ukraine)). Thus, both AN-74T-200A and AN-74TK-300 became first airplanes from the AN-74 family to use digital onboard navigation complex. АN-74Т-200А first flight was on 24 December 2004 (start of aircraft operation was on 29 September 2005 in Egypt).


ADVANTAGES: 

  • The aircraft received an index of AN-74T-200A in which “A” stands for “Arabic”. It was linked with KSAMC’s victory in a tender announced by the government of Egypt to deliver 3, and eventually 6, aircraft of the Egyptian Air Force in 2003. AN-74T-200A competed with C-27J Spartan (Lockheed Martin (USA), Alenia Aeronautica (Italy)), CASA-295 (CASA (Spain) and Airbus Military (European Union). Consequently, “A” in the airplane’s name was interpreted as “African” and / or “Asian”;
  • AN-74T-200A is equipped with a digital computer made by “Elektroavtomatika” (Saint Petersburg, Russian Federation), which was designed in 2004 for this type of aircraft. It includes a 32-bit computer BTsVM90 with a productivity rate of 25 million operations per second for R-R operations. RAM – 1 megabyte, ROM – 8 megabytes and a developed interface;
  • Ан-74Т-200А  fits P RNAV requirements with an accuracy of RNP 1, RNP 5 and is authorised to fly to the EU member-states and those countries that admitted Eurocontrol modern criteria;

The aircraft’s flight characteristics enables to use it in all climate zones in temperatures that range from –60 °С to +45 °С, in mountainous areas, as well as land it on soil, sand and snow runways;
  • It is capable to fly on steep trajectories and has a short take-off run. The aircraft has D-36 series 3A engines that fit ICAO requirements in terms of pollution and noise levels.
