The Japanese Ministry of Defence (MoD) has displayed the newly designed and produced Kawasaki C-2 transport aircraft at the Dubai Airshow, and hopes to export the aircraft to the Gulf region.
On 14 November, Colonel Tokukazu Omine, the C-2 programme manager for the MoD, told Jane’s that Japan anticipates strong interest in the C-2 in the wider Gulf region, particularly from Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) members.
“We have not yet decided to which countries we can export and not export, but once we receive a request from a certain country we can then decide to export or not based on our security values,” Col Omine said.
