Kazakhstan Orders Two more Airbus C-295 Airlifters

Kazakhstan Orders Two more Airbus C-295 Airlifters

Kazakhstan will acquire two C295 military airlifters from Airbus.

In addition to the aircraft, the contract also includes deliveries for spares and a support package. The deal complies with a memorandum of understanding signed by both parties in 2012, the company said in a statement Thursday.

Once delivered, Kazakhstan's defense force will have a total of eight Airbus C-295 planes in its fleet. Both aircraft will be delivered in the second half of this year.

About C-295


The new generation C295 is the ideal aircraft for defence and civic missions to the benefit of society, such as humanitarian actions, homeland security, and environmental surveillance. Thanks to its robustness and reliability, simple systems, and optimal cabin, this medium sized tactical airlifter provides wide versatility and flexibility, necessary for personnel, troop and bulky/palletized cargo transportation, casualty evacuation, communication and logistic duties, and air-dropping. Its flexible design, long endurance and modern systems have made it an outstanding platform for a wide range of ISR roles including anti-submarine and ship warfare, airborne early warning, and maritime surveillance. The C295 is part of Airbus Military’s family of light and medium airlifters which also includes the smaller NC212i and CN235 platforms. In the fourth quarter of 2014 Airbus Military will introduce the C295W, featuring as standard winglets and higher engine power ratings, giving increased performance in all flight phases and lower fuel burn.
