Design

Premium content logo.png
This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Operation Arrowhead expansion pack.


The An-2 is a single-engined biplane that is designed for both military and agricultural purposes.

Features
A rugged utility plane, the An-2 is an easy-to-fly aircraft that doesn't require much experience to operate. With a large passenger capacity, the An-2 can also serve as a rudimentary transport plane to airlift an entire squad's worth of soldiers into battle as well.

In addition, its compact size allows it land or take-off without the need to utilise a full-length runway. Provided that there's enough room and no terrain obstacles, a simple dirt strip or stretch of road is enough for the An-2 to utilise.

Mobility
An outdated design, the An-2's single engine lacks the power output of the American C-130J's four engines. This limits it to a cruise speed of only ~ 239 km/h, with an absolute maximum of 258 km/h.

Drawbacks
Completely unarmed and unprotected, the An-2 will be quickly shredded by anti-aircraft fire. At the same time it doesn't possess any defensive avionics nor countermeasures, meaning that even a lone ZU-23 gun emplacement or 9K32-armed soldier can bring down the An-2 with impunity.

Crew Capacity
The An-2 supports both the pilot and up to fourteen passengers who sit in the rear compartment.

Camouflage

  • Olive: Flat olive green paint scheme. Exclusive to Takistani Army An-2s.
  • AirTak: Cream white paint scheme with a black/dark green stripe that runs along the fuselage. Only used by civilian AirTak airliner-operated An-2s.
  • White: Cream white paint scheme with a bright red stripe running along the centre of the fuselage. Used by Takistani civilian air freight companies.

Protection

The An-2 has a base armour value of 25.

Hull

The plane's hull can withstand up to 25 points of damage. Depleting its integrity will instantly result in a total loss.

Avionics

MAWS

The An-2 does not possess an integrated Missile Approach Warning System, and will not alert the pilot of being targeted by incoming missiles.

RWR

The An-2 lacks a Radar Warning Receiver, and is unable to warn the pilot of being locked-onto by radar-based targeting systems.

IWR

The An-2 does not have an Infrared Warning Receiver, and will not warn the pilot of being targeted by infrared-based weapon systems.

Trivia

  • The An-2 is the only biplane-type aircraft in ArmA 2.
  • Alongside the T-34 and the BTR-40, the An-2 is amongst one of the few oldest vehicles in the series.
