[An-26LL-PLO]
> Soviet Union twin-engined turboprop civilian and military transport aircraft
> this version is designed for surveillance, detection and tracking of stealthy nuclear submarines.

Features:
* AG1-2 release sonar probes
* Custom Flaps (VTOL) and ailerons.
* Blueprints, Scale and Performances
* Ag-8 turn off lights
* Anchor logo is a hint to a secret!

(Letayuschaya Laboratoriya – Protivolodochnoy Oborony – ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare) testbed) : A single 'An-26A' aircraft, (c/n 0901), retrofitted and modified to accommodate range of sophisticated laboratory for surveillance systems, detecting and tracking stealthy nuclear submarines.

Plane delivered to EternalDarkness, who asked for it (i always keep my promises, even 6 months late :D).
I find transport planes kinda dull, so i picked this unique version (stealth submarine detector). Since there is not much data about it, i took some elements (equipment) from P-3 Orion, american solution to submarine warfare.

[Secret: it can operate as a sea-plane too, use flaps for easier water-takeoff]

    This is cool, the sonar probes are neat and fun to play with. I like your ability to add a lot of detail with as few parts as possible. Your methods work well, and sometime in the future I'm going to study them a bit.

    @jamesPLANESii no An-2, there are so many already and very good quality.
    Probably i will convert this to An-32 (the one with big engines) or to An-50 (propellers replaced by jet engines)
