Cameroon Air Force to receive CN235
Airbus Military has announced that the Cameroon Air Force has placed an order for a single CN235 medium transport, which will make the Republic of Cameroon the 43rd operator of the aircraft worldwide. The company made the announcement in a 6 June, 2012, statement.
The CN235 will be used to modernise the Cameroon Air Force’s transport fleet, according to Airbus Military; with low maintenance and operating costs named as key factors by the company in the Cameroon Air Force´s selection of the aircraft.
The CN235 is a robust aircraft with a six tonne payload that is well-proven in hot, dusty and humid conditions throughout Africa. It is flexible and reliable with short take-off and landing capability, and its cabin can be easily reconfigured for a variety of transport missions such as carrying troops, cargo, mixed loads or for medical evacuation.
