|Role||Wide-body propfan airliner|
The An-180 was a conventionally designed low-wing cantilever monoplane with a conventional tail unit, the unusual feature was the mounting of an Ivenchko Progress D-27 propfan mounted at the ends of each tailplane. Each propfan was to have a co-axial contra-rotating tractor propeller and the An-180 also designed with a retractable landing gear with twin nose wheels and tandem pairs of main wheels.
It was planned to have a number of variants with seating starting at 150–156 passengers to a larger variant for 200 passengers and it was also planned to build a combination passenger/freight and an all freight variant.
