An-2F by O.K.Antonov

36k b/w An-2F at "History of aircraft construction in the USSR", Vol.1 p.397

Artillery spotter and photo-reconnaissater, the only armed member of An-2 family. It also differed by slim tail, twin tailfins and glazed fuselage section behind the wing. Tail layout allowed effective gunner operation.

An-2F was finished in July 1948 and first flown in April 1949 by pilot A.E.Pashkevich. Trials continued until February 1950.

Aircraft was obviously obsolete for military service, and no production followed.
