Spain orders two new CN-235

The Spain’s Interior Ministry has ordered two EADS CASA CN-235 aircraft in Maritime Patrol version that will be operated by the “Servicio Aéreo de la Guardia Civil.” These are the first fix-wing aircraft in service with these forces, which already have a fleet of helicopters in their inventory.
One aircraft will be based in the Canary Islands and the other one in the south of the Spanish Peninsula and will be performing missions against drug trafficking, illegal immigration, border patrol missions, maritime search and rescue, etc.
The first CN-235 will be delivered mid 2008 and the second one in the spring 2009. Both will include FLIR (Forward Look Infrared), and FITS (Fully Integrated Tactical System) developed by EADS CASA, which makes these aircraft a very effective tool for the purpose.
