Video of India’s first C295 tactical transport getting unique grey IAF livery at an assembly at Airbus Defence & Space’s San Pablo site near Seville, Spain has emerged before it completes its first flight soon.
Airbus commenced taxi trials and ground trials of the Indian-bound C295 tactical transport aircraft last few weeks ago and the first aircraft will be delivered to India later in the third quarter of this year.
The first 16 will be completed by Airbus, with the remainder being produced in-country by Tata Advanced Systems. C295 to replace aged Hawker Siddeley HS 748 “Avro” transports in IAF service.
