Agree with DANIEL.

The AN22 first flew in 1965 and is still in service. It is also the world's largest turboprop-powered aircraft.

Counter rotating Turbo Prop?
John Felton
Is the Airbus A400M larger?
The Antonov has a greater wingspan and is heavier, with a greater payload capability than the A400M.
Mark Huntsinger
@Colin That is bigger than a TU-95?
Mark Weiser
I've never understood the few examples of contra-rotating props, I do on the Russian Helicopter anti-torque and all that, but why here?

A well designed contra-rotating propeller will have no rotational air flow, pushing a maximum amount of air uniformly through the propeller disk, resulting in high performance and low induced energy loss. It also serves to counter the asymmetrical torque effect of a conventional propeller (see P-factor).
