I don't believe a 747-200SUD modification is available as of yet?

I'm rather surprised AWS does not seem to have the Antonov AN-2!  :) The AN-2 "Annushka" (NATO: 'Colt') was a widely successful, mass-produced, dual-purpose, large biplane of the Soviet era which saw service across a large part of the world in its original form.  Today, the upgraded turboprop-powered variants (as well as a few vintage ones) are still operated commercially in developing nations.  Specifications below.



In AWS, the AN-2 would be a nice used airplane stock for 1955 starts for both cargo and short-haul passenger airlines, especially with the limited selection of dedicated cargo aircraft in those early game years.  In fact, due to its long real-life production run (ended in 2001), the factory line should remain open for New orders even in 1955 starts.  For balance, the airplane should have both low acquisition & maintenance costs (which is realistic in both cases).  Over the years the option to convert to the AN-3 (1980) and AN-2-100 (2013) turboprop conversions should be given (I'm happy to research more data for these variants if the AN-2 is accepted!)

Some basic specs for the original version:

Available from: 1949 (announced 1947)
Crew: 1-2
Size class: Small
Maximum speed: 250 km/h (135 kts IAS)
Cruise speed: 190 km/h (102 kts IAS, or ~135 KTAS @ 14,000')
Pax version capacity: 12 Y

Cargo version capacity: 1500 kg (3306 lbs) [suggest Cargo-Light and Cargo-Standard eligible]
Cargo volume: 4.2 x 1.85 x 1.65 m
Cargo max density: 1000 kg/M2 (structural limitation)
Powerplant: Shvetsov ASh-62IR 9-cylinder air-cooled supercharged radial piston engine, 750 kW (1,010 hp)
Fuel capacity: 892 kg (1200 liters or 317 US gal)
Fuel consumption (hourly, cruise flight): 118 kg (158 liters or 42 US gal)
Fuel consumption (hourly, on ground): 45 kg (61 liters or 16 US gal)
Maximum endurance (calculated @ cruise power): 7.55 hours
Normal Range: calculated @ ~1330 km or 718 nm at normal cruise speed, after factoring .5 hr reserve fuel & taxi burn
Maximum Range: 2000 km (1,079 nm) at endurance power [published]
Service ceiling (@ MGW): 4500 m (14,764 ft)
Normal climb rate: 186 m/min (610 ft/min)
Normal descent rate: 120 m/min (394 ft/min)
Basic operating weight: 3350 kg (7,385 lb)
Normal gross weight & max landing weight: 5250 kg (11,575 lbs)
Takeoff distance (no-flaps to 25m altitude): 800m (2625 ft)
Takeoff distance (flaps 30deg to 25m altitude): 540m (1772 ft)
Landing distance (flaps 40deg): 215m (656 ft)
