AMMAN (BNS): Jordan has inked an agreement with Europe's Airbus Defence and Space and US's ATK to convert one of its two C295 military transport aircraft into a gunship.

Under the agreement, Airbus and ATK will cooperatively work with the King Abdullah II Design and Development Bureau (KADDB) of Jordan in converting the aircraft operated by the Royal Jordanian Air Force into gunship configuration.

The new configuration AC295 will join two AC-235 gunships that were delivered to Jordan by ATK in May this year.

The AC295 gunship configuration will be based on the AC-235 light gunship which includes integrated mission and fire control systems, electro-optical and radar sensors, Hellfire missiles, ATK's side-mounted M230 30mm chain gun, an integrated defensive suite and 2.75 inch guided rockets, Airbus Military announced.
