The C27J Spartan was fashioned from the former G.222, which was then produced under the collaboration of three Italian companies namely Fiat Aviazione, Alenia Aeronautica, and Aeritalia. Widely used by the Italian Air Force, this military transport aircraft had its maiden flight in 1999. After improvements were completed on the aircraftÕs engines and electronic systems, the enhanced plane gained an increase in range by 35% and a faster cruise speed by 15% than its predecessor. Its developers claim that so far, it was the worldÕs only authentic tactical cargo aircraft. It had various roles such as aiding in medical evacuation, performing airdrops, providing cargo solutions, and transporting troops.
