JASDF Kawasaki C-2 Makes International Debut at Dubai
Posted: 2017 Nov 13
 
Japan is showcasing its newest transport aircraft, the Kawasaki C-2, at the Dubai Airshow. The C-2 will be on static display at the show. 
 
“The C-2 is a transportation aircraft developed by the MOD/SDF and made in Japan. In consideration of its performance and loading capacity, this aircraft is attracting interest from military authorities of various countries,” a senior Japanese official told Daily News at the official event to mark the C-2’s presence at the show. 
 
The Japan Air Self-Defence Force (JASDF) currently has three operational C-2 aircraft, which are based at Miho Air Base in Japan and is to receive a fourth example by the end of the month. 
 
The JASDF has ordered a total of 11 C-2’s, however, a final requirement for as high as 30 aircraft has been projected. 
 
The C-2 aircraft present at the show is part of what Japanese officials term as a training flight and the second flight to New Zealand and other countries will take place between November 25 and December 1.
 
The JASDF inducted the C-2 into service in March and the new-generation twin-engine transport aircraft will replace the JASDF’s ageing C-1 fleet.
 
The C-2 has a cruise speed of 0.81 Mach and can attain an altitude of 43,000 feet. It can carry a payload of 36 tonne over a distance of 4500 km, while the claimed ferry range is 9600 km.
