Bangladesh is set to acquire a single Airbus C295W medium airlifter for its Army Aviation.

The aircraft, in transport configuration, will be delivered in the second half of 2017 under a contract that also includes customer support and training, Airbus said in a statement Tuesday.

The C295W is qualified for the transport of troops and bulky/palletized cargo, para-trooping and medical evacuation. It is the first multi-engine fixed-wing aircraft to be operated by Bangladesh Army Aviation.
