We, at Pinnacle are now specialising in making scaled down models/ lapel pins and cufflinks of existing and phased out aircraft. The intricate detailing calls for the utmost perfection in production. The same can be seen in the models that have already been created for a few of our premier Indian Air Force Squadrons.
The An-32 is basically a re-engined An-26. The launch customer was the Indian Air Force. The An-32 is designed to withstand adverse weather conditions better than the standard An-26. The high placement of the engine nacelles above the wing allowed for larger diameter propellers, which are driven by turboprop engines. The An-32 therefore enjoys excellent takeoff characteristics under tropical and mountainous (high-altitude) conditions, where hot or thin air hampers the engines capability.
