(C-295M): Medium-range, tactical transport.

The CASA/EADS C-295 series transport is a significant development from the earlier CASA CN-235. A 50% increase in payload capacity and newer engines place the C-295 in a great position for the light and medium transport aircraft market. Numerous versions of the C-295 exist to fill a number of roles from maritime patrol, modular transport and medical evacuation. Some examples can be refueled in-flight, while the majority do not feature such capability.

Currently, the C-295M is favored as a replacement for many of the world's aging Antonov transports as well as earlier CASA C-212 series aircraft. In many occasions the C-295 competes in direct opposition to the Lockheed/L-3 C-27J Spartan.
