Airbus DS outlines progress on armed C295


Airbus Defense and Space (DS) is set to deliver its first armed intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) C295 aircraft to an undisclosed customer in September, Pablo Melero, marketing manager for ISR Military Aircraft at Airbus DS, told Jane’s.

The modified aircraft features a forward-looking infrared (FLIR) under the nose, a multimode search radar with maritime and ground surveillance modes, a palletised version of Airbus DS’ newest Fully Integrated Tactical System (FITS), which features additional screens for improved situation awareness, and a pair of 12.7 mm manually operated heavy machine guns (HMG) firing through the rear parachuting doors. The exact type of HMG was not disclosed by Airbus DS.
