EW Singapore: E-2D Hawkeye coming to Asia

11th January 2017 - 12:00 GMT | by Gordon Arthur in Hong Kong


Next month the US Navy (USN) will move a squadron of Northrop Grumman E-2D Advanced Hawkeye airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft from Norfolk Naval Station in the US to Japan.

Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron 125 (VAW-125) ‘Tigertails’, with five aircraft and 225 personnel, will be stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni. Its assets will deploy aboard the carrier USS Ronald Reagan forward-based in Japan.

This will be the E-2D’s first deployment to the Asia-Pacific region, which is on edge amidst greater military boisterousness by China. There is also concern about a resurgent Russia in the Far East.
