Description: The CN-235 is a twin turboprop tactical transport aircraft capable of operating from short, unpaved runways. It has been selected by more than 20 countries worldwide and features versatility, minimal support requirements, safe and reliable operation in all environments at low costs. Typically the CN-235 aircraft complements larger C-130 Hercules cargo aircraft. The CN-235 tactical transport aircraft program is the result of cooperation between Spain (EADS-CASA) and Indonesia (IPTN). Spain has developed many variants of this aircraft and ultimately C-295 has emerged as the most sophisticated and versatile derivative of proven CN-235.
The AC-235 is a light gunship derived from the CN-235 light transport aircraft and ordered by the Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF). It includes integrated mission and fire control systems, electro-optical and radar sensors, Hellfire missiles, ATK's side-mounted M230 30mm chain gun, an integrated defensive suite and 2.75 inch/70mm guided rockets such as the laser-guided APKWS. Two CN-235 aircraft operated by the RJAF were converted into the AC-235 configuration in 2013 and 2014.
