Antonow An-12 K by JanBoruta Antonow An-12 K by JanBoruta
The long-promised Russian space bomber concept. The Antonow An-12 K (Kosmicheskij) is the latest bomber type that appeared in the Russian Imperial Space Navy. Powerfully armed and armoured, able to develop reasonable speed. However, typically for Russian heavy bombers of that period, its agility is very poor. It also features open: cockpit and MG nests. Despite its flaws, the An-12 K is a destructive machine, capable of engaging every ship larger than a monitor.

Armament:
- two 76,2 mm howitzers (ammunition stored in lower pair of wings),
- two 20 mm Bofors QF cannons mounted in the front of each engine,
- two double Maxim machine guns fitted in two rotating turrets below the hull,
- three single Maxim machine guns in open nests,
- four 250 kg bombs.

...

Hull shape slightly based on Handley Page Heyford.

This concept is the last in this series. :) I hope this is a kick-ass ending :D Anyway, I'll be back to the idea in the future, earlier or later :)

HB mechanical pencil used, took about 2-3 hours at home and school.

Enjoy!
Tom :D

I love it! =)
But just of curiosity: how does it land?
Nevertheless: a beautiful piece of art! ;-D

It is a space plane, it doesn't have to land. :) It either is docked with magnets aboard a carrier, or you could say it has retractable wheels in the lower pair of wings, behind the cannons.

This is an impressive design, with extra incredible detail.Not only is she a bi-plane but she is my favorite style "twin tail". A great job.

A great Concept - It looks rather Steampunk, but that just makes it better, somehow.

You ought to add Shark's teeth on the front - It'd add to the overall feel.

Looks pretty sweet man, though I have to wonder how you intend to land the plane since there doesnt seem to be any room for gear with all of the bombs and other equipment beneath the wings.

Yeah, it is pretty kickass... (thanks to the open-cockpit design XD)
Those howitzers are hardcore. Without them it would be only 3/4 kickass :P
Just the hull construction seems a bit weak to me... a bit like TB-3 too (which looked like a paper plane to me XD - but only looked)

Handley Page Heyford in original is MASSIVE. I wanted to resemble it but I didn't manage. Let's say the Tsar has only a little money to spend on space bombers :P

Faktycznie przypomina trochę Handley Page Heyforda, ale ma taką ciężką sylwetkę i gdyby nie ten dolny płat to pomyślałbym, że to Avro Lancaster! Dziub wygląda też ałkiem jak ten w sowieckim DB-3. Ten okaz przypomina więc bardziej klimatem maszyny "popierwszowojenne", ale i tak uważam, że jest to najfajniejszy z kosmolotów. Kawał dobrej roboty i przepraszam za tą całą gadaninę, ale jestem fanem militariów i nie mogłem sobie darować he he...

Oczywiście, że się wzorowałem na międzywojniu, to jakby dla mnie kwintesencja i pewien pomost pomiędzy ciężkimi bombowcami WW1 i WW2. Pierwszowojenne bazgroły mi nie wychodziły, a drugowojenne już zbyt nowoczesne jak na to uniwersum... ;) Dziękować za komenaar :)
