E-2D Advanced Hawkeye Delivered to the Squadron 12 September, 2019

The U.S. Navy Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron 120 (VAW-120), also known as “Greyhawks”, receive the first improved version of E-2D Advanced Hawkeye airborne early warning surveillance aircraft with aerial refuelling capability. The upgrades installed to support aerial refuelling include electrical and lighting upgrades and long endurance seats that will enhance the field of view in the cockpit and reduce fatigue over longer missions.

The aerial refuelling capability will allow the E-2D to provide longer on-station times at greater ranges. With a two-generation leap in radar sensor capability and a robust network-enabled capability and now with aerial refuelling capability, the Advanced Hawkeye will deliver critical, actionable data to joint forces and first responders.
