: Feb 21, 2018 - : 3:45 am

Brazil has ordered an additional Airbus C295 search and rescue (SAR) aircraft. Once the aircraft is delivered, the Brazilian Air Force will have 15 C295s.

The three SAR aircraft will serve alongside 12 transport-configured C295s that have already been delivered. The first SAR aircraft was delivered last year. During its five-week tour through four continents before arriving in Brazil, the aircraft demonstrated its maritime patrol and search and rescue capabilities in a wide range of environments.

The second FAB C295 SAR will be delivered next year and the third in 2020. More than 200 C295s have now been ordered by 26 countries. In the Latin American region, more than 100 Airbus military transport aircraft of all kinds are in operation.
