Hellenic Air Force Tactical Transport Fleet

Strategy-Geopolitics reports on 2 parallel developments regarding the tactical transport capability of the Hellenic Air Force. The first is the fact that 8 C-27J Spartan aircraft are already delivered and in service with 354 Squadron. A further 4 are going through flight tests in Italy. These last four aircraft have the ability to be refuelled in the air through an In Flight Refuelling Receiver System (IFRRS). At the same time the Avionics Upgrade Programme of the existing 15 C-130B/H aircraft are ongoing at the Hellenic Aerospace Industry which is being combined with deport level maintenance. These aircraft are also getting a new grey coloured camouflage scheme (see here).
