Photographer's Remark

First flown in January 2010, this is the prototype transport designed to replace Japan's C-130 and C-1 fleets. 30 C-2s are planned with a 37.6t payload and to keep costs down it shares some components with the P-1 maritime patrol aircraft, although very different in appearance
