MADRID (BNS): The Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Ghana has signed a contract with Airbus Military for the acquisition of two C295 aircraft.

"The C295 will enable the Air Force to move troops and other security agencies across the country and within the West African sub-region," Minister of Defence Lt Gen. JH Smith, was quoted as saying in EADS news release.

The aircraft will also be used for medical evacuation, paratrooping, training and humanitarian operations including assistance to organizations such as National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and the peace mission of the United Nations.

The aircraft are to be delivered from the beginning of 2012.

The C295 is a multifunction aircraft that operates into short, unimproved runways. It is extremely effective in operating in austere, remote airfields, and in adverse weather conditions and has exceptionally low fuel-consumption.
