H.-P. Grolleau - 'Transallito' /Military/
The CN235-200 and CN235-300 are gradually replacing the Transall in French service, taking a leading role in the utility, tactical airlift, medical evacuation and paradropping roles.
Eight patients can be carried in the CN235, and the aircraft’s ability to land on and take off from semi-prepared runways means it can take casualties direct to medical facilities from austere locations.
The CN235-300 cockpit's flight management systems offer global navigation satellite system capability and an enhanced ground proximity warning system with a 3D database.
