Airbus Military delivers C295 to Mexico

13th December 2011 - 08:39 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Airbus Military has delivered a new C295 aircraft to the Mexican Air Force to fulfil a troop and paratrooper transport operation requirement. This latest C295 to be delivered to Mexico is in addition to the five C295s delivered during 2012 and that the Mexican Secretary of Defence already operates.

According to a 12 December 2011 company statement, this delivery marks the tenth C295 delivered to the Mexican Air Force, in addition to the seven CN235 (six of them in Maritime Patrol version), and ten C212 (eight of them in Maritime Patrol version) acquired by the Mexican Air Force, Navy, and Federal Police.

The C295 is suited to both tactical and logistical military missions. As well as troop and supply transport, it can be easily reconfigured for medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) or can carry up to nine tonnes of palletised or bulk cargo. The aircraft’s short take-off and landing (STOL) abilities are essential to provide access to remote locations.

To date, Airbus Military has sold 86 C295 to 14 different operators.
