- Could An-2 be a PZL/WSK-Mielec version as well? Weasel1984 23:14 18.05.2011.
Agreed Michal, and since it seems a Polish Air Force airplane, it certainly might be Polish built version, but I didn't find the name of it in this case, so that I proposed An-2 meanwhile some of us would find. Any idea? Sixcyl 02:00, 21 May 2011 (MDT)
- An-2 as well. It was made since 1960.

Polish post-war aircrafts manufacturers
The naming of Polish aircraft factories is not very simple question, I have to say, but I think (I hope), now everything became more clear, at least is a bit for me.... By what I've just read:
After the WWII the PZL WP-2 factory was renamed to WSK "PZL-Mielec" and then in 1998 to PZL Mielec. So for example the An-2 will be WSK PZL-Mielec An-2.
Similar was with Wilga, which in fact was produced by WSK-Okęcie (so I was originally wrong to think it was PZL-Okęcie :/) = WSK-Okęcie PZL 104 Wilga. And then the factory has been renamed to PZL Warszawa-Okęcie in the 90's (PZL Warszawa-Okęcie 104 Wilga?).
Same with all other aircrafts made in Poland. In case of those made between 1940's and 1990's there was always WSK in factory name - WSK PZL-city, with exception for planes made in Warsaw (WSK-city/district PZL). I've already made changes to all of them, but have changed only the display name, not the category (to do not make redirections necessary in case of Wilgas and Mi-2), do not know if it is acceptable?
