Peru has ordered two C-27J tactical transport aircraft from Alenia Aermacchi in a 100 million-euro deal including logistics, the firm announced Nov. 25.
The aircraft has been selected by the Peruvian Air Force after a three-year Peruvian Ministry of Defense selection procedure, and the contract will be signed “as soon as administrative procedures are completed,” said Alenia Aermacchi, a unit of Italy’s Finmeccanica.
During tests, the aircraft undertook troop and civilian transport, materials and medicine transport, medevac operations, airdrops, search and rescue, humanitarian, homeland security and civil protection missions.
The C-27J has already been ordered by Italy, Greece, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Romania, Morocco, Mexico, the US, Australia and by an undisclosed African country for a total of 74 aircraft. The aircraft has also been selected by Slovakia and the contract is under negotiation, said Alenia Aermacchi.
