Alenia Aermacchi has signed a contract with the Peruvian Ministry of Defense to supply two C-27J Spartan tactical airlifters.

The contract has a value of around 100 million euro inclusive of a substantial logistic support package, technical assistance, training for pilots, crew and ground engineers and a set of special equipment that have been chosen by the customer.

Giuseppe Giordo, Alenia Aermacchi CEO, said: “The choice by the Peruvian MoD is a confirmation that, when an air force has a stringent airlift requirement in terms of performance and capability, the Spartan is the only solution able to guarantee an excellent value for money”.

During the operational evaluation run in Peru before the selection, the C-27J demonstrated its capability to perform a variety of missions including transport of civilians, troops, materials and medicines, logistical re-supply, MEDEVAC, airdrop operations, search and rescue (SAR), humanitarian assistance and operations in support of homeland security and civil protection, with the capability to operate on a large number of airfields where its competitor is unable to land.
