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 CN-235 rear ramp facilitates load/unload of cargo operations being able to accommodate passengers, standardized pallets, light vehicles and other payloads. In addition to cargo missions, CN-235 can accommodate up to 36 fully equipped paratroopers as well as 21 stretchers for medical evacuation. Paratroopers airdrop can be done quickly due to the rear ramp and two side doors. The CN-235 can deliver loads everywhere through LAPES at low altitude or airdropping them from high altitudes. CN-235 versatility allows to perform additional missions through installation of external payloads and equipment such as marine patrol, electronic warfare, training or surveillance. The CN-235 and C-295 aircraft configured for maritime patrol duties have been dubbed 'Persuader'.

Despite it was designed for military customers, CN-235 gained civil certification in the United States, Europe and Australia. CN-235-300 is the latest production model. The US Coast Guard purchased the CN-235 aircraft to support maritime patrol missions starting in 2005 under the HC-235A designation.
