The Antonov An-24 was developed into the An-26 (freighter), the An-30 (survey/photo) and the An-32 (hot and high version). First flown 1974 with distinctive glazing around the nose, the An-30 Clank was built specifically for aerial survey work. The An-30 is essentially an Ant-24RT or an An-26 with mission related equipment fitted.
Aside from the dozen or so in service with Aeroflot, examples of the An-30 have been bought by Balkan Bulgarian Airlines, CAAC of China and the Romanian Air Force.
