With your help, we've been able to make the necessary upgrades to our server to keep the site running more smoothly than ever!

The meager ad revenue generated by this site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server, and we who manage it have never made money from it.

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.

This page lists all films that feature a variation of the Antonov An-10/An-12.
