E-2C Hawkeye EP 71" ARF
Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye EP 71" ARF
The Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye is an American all-weather, carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. It was designed and developed during the late 1950s and early 1960s by the Grumman Aircraft Company for the United States Navy. The aircraft's performance has been upgraded with the E-2B, and E-2C versions, where most of the changes were made to theradar and radio communications due to advances in electronic integrated circuits and other electronics. The fourth version of the Hawkeye is the E-2D. Variants of the Hawkeye have been in continuous production since 1960, giving it the longest production run of any carrier-based aircraft. In addition to U.S. Navy service, smaller numbers of E-2s have been sold to the armed forces of Egypt, France, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Singapore and Taiwan.
