Antonov An-12 seen in Lord of War .

The Antonov An-12 was a four-engined turboprop transport aircraft designed in the Soviet Union. It was the military version of the Antonov An-10. In terms of configuration, size and capability, the aircraft was similar to the United States-built Lockheed C-130 Hercules with excellent field performance making the aircraft suitable for use on small undeveloped airfields. Over 900 had been built, in both military (An-12) and civilian (An-10) versions, before production finally ended in 1973.

In the 1960s China purchased several An-12 aircraft from the Soviet Union, along with a license to assemble the aircraft locally. After Sino-Soviet split, China developped its own production designed Shaanxi Y-8 with some specific improvements and adaptations. The Y-8 remains in production as of 2011.
