An-32P Firefighting aircraft

An-32P is designed for firefighting by means of discharging fire extinguishing liquids, transportation to fire points and target para-drop of firemen and special equipment, transportation of firefighting resources to the areas on fire. When not firefighting, aircraft can be converted into transport aircraft within airfield facilities.

Operational features:
Discharge of 8 tons of fire extinguishing liquid from two tanks at 40-50 m above ground and speed of 240 to 260 km/h will result to creation of water spot with liquid concentration more than 1 l/sq. m, 120-160 m long and 10-35 m wide. Fire extinguishing liquid can be discharged simultaneously (in a volley) or one after the other from two modules of each tank with automatic delay.

Cargo compartment size (length 12,48 m, width 2,78 m and height 1,84 m) and tail hatch size ensure transportation of cargo, motor wheeled and non-motor wheeled equipment. Cargo compartment is airtigh and fitted with air conditioning system. For transport operations aircraft is fitted with big cargo hatch in fuselage tail part with frame as a door, which can be lowered to ground and serve as loading ramp or be shifted under the fuselage, thus providing expedient loading of cargos into the aircraft directly from the truck as well as easy para-drop of troops or cargos. Loading lift with 3 tons lifting capacity, detachable roller facility which ensures para-drop of platforms and transportation of cargos on pallets are also fittAn-32P is designed for firefighting by means of discharging fire extinguishing liquids, transportation to fire points and target para-drop of firemen and special equipment, transportation of firefighting resources to the areas on fire.
