Airbus Military has informed that the Mexican Air Force has received its first CASA C-295 transport aircraft. Another C-295 will be delivered in the coming weeks. The entire fleet will be operational by the end of year.
The Mexican Air Force ordered five C-295 last year, which will join the two already operational C-295’s of the Mexican Navy.
The C-295 is a medium-capacity transport and cargo aircraft, developed by EADS subsidiary CASA, in Seville, Spain.
The Mexican Air Force will use the C-295 for troop transport and MEDEVAC missions.
