Mexican Air Force buys C-27J Spartan
Well, it’s official: the Mexican Air Force is buying four C-27J Spartan transport aircraft.
“Finmeccanica, through its operating company Alenia Aeronautica, signed a contract worth
approximately USD 200 million with Mexico to supply four tactical transport aircraft C-27J.
The first aircraft will be delivered by the end of 2011 and the whole supply will be completed by the
end of 2012. The contract envisages also the logistics support for the entire fleet through the supply of
spare parts and GSE (Ground Support Equipment).
The Spartans (VIDEO) will serve along the recently-acquired CASA C295 transport aircraft and the much older C-130 Hercules.
