Via Pickled Wings, an excellent little write-up of the AN-2. Apparently it has an onboard air pump to adjust tire and brake pressure, and an onboard fuel pump to eliminate the need for an outside source to fill the tanks. That, in my opinion, is brilliantly obvious engineering for an airplane designed to operate in the rough.
