The E-2D Advance Hawkeye has gone operational with its first U.S. Navy squadron. Airborne Early Warning squadron VAW-125 "Tigertails" became the first unit to become fully operational with the E2-D during a March 27 ceremony at Naval Station Norfolk Chambers Field, according to a Navy announcement.

The Advanced Hawkeye, an updated version of the long serving E-2, can perform a variety of missions, including airborne strike, ground force support, rescue operations and providing communications for drug interdiction operations.

The E-2D features a new radar and computers, more advanced communications and datalinks, and open-architecture hardware and software.
