Main undercarriage on the port side is shown here. Of note is a landing light attached to the inner U/C cover and a hydraulic actuator link of that cover.

Note that this cover almost touches the fuselage when fully opened.

Inner surface detail of the main port gear cover, and detail of the wheel hub can be seen better in this view.

The main undercarriage legs retract forward.

Starboard main undercarriage assembly seen from the rear. Large diameter tyres provide for rough-field capability.

Nose undercarriage leg detail. The twin  wheels are equipped with a stoneguard, visible clearly from this angle. The guard prevents stones, ice atc. from being thrown up into the lower fuselage.

The same leg seen from the front. Mineral water bottle lends scale to the whole assembly. A view from this angle reveals also hydraulic brake lines going along the leg.

...and yet another view of the same leg.
