Development of the C-2 began in 2001 and had its first flight in 2010.


The aircraft, which was developed and manufactured in Japan, can carry heavier loads and perform tasks such as international cooperation thanks to its increased cargo space. The first flight of the twin-engine shoulder-wing aircraft took place in 2010. The C-2 is capable of transporting troops, dropping supplies and performing medical evacuations, even in hostile environments. Even compromised runways, such as those caused by grass, snow or mud, can be handled by the aircraft.
