Angola to Acquire three C295 for maritime surveillance

Angola has placed an order for three Airbus C295s to perform multirole operations. Two aircraft will be equipped explicitly for maritime surveillance and one for transport missions. The aircraft configured for transport missions will be able to carry out tactical cargo and troop transport tasks, para-trooping, load dropping or humanitarian missions.


The two C295s are configured as Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) for Search and Rescue (SAR), border control, natural disaster support, and intelligence-gathering missions.

They will be equipped with the Airbus-developed Fully Integrated Tactical System (FITS) mission system and state-of-the-art sensors. All aircraft will be equipped with the Collins Aerospace Pro Line Fusion avionics suite. With this new order, the Força Aérea Nacional de Angola (FANA) becomes the 38th C295 operator worldwide.
