The C-27J tactical transport aircraft, designed and produced by Alenia Aeronautica, a Finmeccanica company, has achieved a further success on the international markets, with a 130 million Euro order for four aircraft to be supplied to the Moroccan Defence Ministry.

This brings the total number of orders received to 121, making the C-27J the world’s most successful transport aircraft in its category.

After receiving 39 orders in Europe from Italy, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria and Lithuania, and 78 in the United States for the US Army and the US Air Force, this is the first C-27J order from a non-NATO country.

The C-27J is a multirole aircraft able to perform logistical re-supply, MEDEVAC, troop transport, airdrop operations, Search and Rescue, humanitarian assistance and missions in support of homeland security.
