The Northrop Grumman E-2 Hawkeye is an American all-weather, carrier-capable tactical airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. This twin-turboprop aircraft was designed and developed during the late 1950s and early 1960s by the Grumman Aircraft Company for the United States Navy as a replacement for the earlier, piston-engined E-1 Tracer, which was rapidly becoming obsolete. Primary Role: Airborne Early Warning And Control.
The Northrop E-2 Hawkeye is an all-weather airborne early warning aircraft (AEW). The E-2 was a twin-turboprop developed in the late 1950Ęs and early 1960Ęs for the USN. The E-2 is a carrier-capable aircraft and has received major upgrades in their electronics for the E-2B and E-2C with the E-2C also receiving improved turbo-prop engines. The E-2 has been in production since the 1960Ęs making it the longest production run of any carrier based aircraft. The E-2C variant became operational in 1973.
JapanĘs first of 13 Grumman E-2C Hawkeye went into service with the AEW Group 601st Hikotai at Misawa in January 1987. A few of these aircraft eventually went to equip the 603rd Hikotai at Naha. In 2005 the 601st and 603rd were re-designated Hiko Keikai Kanshitai Air Warning Surveillance Squadrons but in 2014 the Hiko Keikai Kanshitai was split and became 1 and 2 Hiko Keikai Kanshitai with E-2C 34-3459 c/n A20-953 becoming part of 1 HKK. The E-2C will eventually be phased out by the newer E-2D.
