Description

History

The company is named after Oleg Antonov, its founder and head designer of An-2, An-24, An-22 and other legendary planes. The Antonov company lacks facilities for full construction of some aircraft, a result of Soviet industrial strategy that split military production between different regions of the USSR. This distribution minimized potential war loss risks. As a result, Antonov airplanes were often constructed by aerospace companies in Kharkiv (Ukraine), Novosibirsk (Russia), and Tashkent (Uzbekistan). Source Antonov at Wikipedia.org.
