About Leonardo’s C-27J

Widely recognised as the most effective multi-role military transport aircraft in its size class, the C-27J Spartan is able to face the most challenging operational environments, from the high altitudes of the Andes to Afghanistan, the C-27J’s performance and operating efficiency are today enabled by new avionics, featuring a glass cockpit with five multi-functional colour screens, a radar system for tactical transport missions and advanced communication systems. The system architecture guarantees interoperability with other transport aircraft and can be easily integrated with in-flight refuelling, self-protection, secure communications and ballistic protection, allowing the aircraft to operate in high threat environments, transporting materials, light vehicles and personnel to wherever they are needed.

With over 200,000 flight hours in-service, the C-27J is quickly reconfigurable in less than 30 minutes for over 10 missions configurations. In operation with 17 countries worldwide the C-27J has cemented it’s position as the ideal aircraft for military transport missions, special forces operations, support for populations affected by natural disasters, Search And Rescue (SAR), Maritime Patrol, C3-ISR (Command, Control, Communication, Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance), Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) and Anti-Surface unit Warfare (ASuW).
