MADRID (BNS): Airbus Military has delivered the third and final C212-400 for the Vietnam Marine Police.

With this delivery, the company has ended production of the C212 at the Airbus Military final assembly line (FAL) in Seville, Spain.

From now on operators from all over the world will have a new and upgraded version available, renamed as NC212 that will be produced jointly by PT Dirgantara Indonesia and Airbus Military and assembled in Bandung, Indonesia, a company statement said.

Since its maiden flight in 1971, 477 C212 have been built for 92 different operators. The three countries in which there are today most C212s in operation are Indonesia, USA, and Spain.

Designed in the late 1960s, the airlifter was first delivered to the Portuguese Air Force and the Spanish Air Force in October 1974.

The Airbus Military final assembly line in Seville will now focus on the production of the C295 and CN235 aircraft in both transport and mission configurations, as well as on the increasing activity on the A400M assembly line.
