AN-2 in the Ukraine


Recommended Posts

There were a large number of An-2s in Belarus just before the war kicked off; it was never clear how they ended up being used. I had assumed there would be part of the air assault effort since they could land on practically any suitably flat piece of territory but I've not seen any footage of their use. I'd expect converting one into a drone is actually more expensive than just building a Shahed type drone; the Aeries didn't make them remote controlled they simply flew them towards the target and bailed out. THAT is very cost effective, since it requires no mods to the plane. It does require a cadre of pilots willing to do some sky diving though.
