This post is related to the high performance version of the Antonov 24
called 24V. I read that it has an auxilary turbojet engine in the right
engine nacelle rated at 8kN. The same engine is also used on the An26.

- Is this a unique way to enhance performance of a turboprop ?
- Was this choice caused by a lack of more powerful engines ?
- Is there a picture and/or technical description of this particular
feature on the WWW ?
