Grumman E-2C Hawkeye   9.75"   13.5"

In November 1995 Taiwan received four E-2T Hawkeye (E-2C export version for Taiwan) aircraft from the U.S.. The first aircraft was U.S. serial 151709 and newly numbered #2501 and sent to Pingtung along with the other three. In 2008 the first 4 E-2Ts were approved to be upgraded to Hawkeye 2000 standards (E-2K) and carried out in two batches of two aircraft. The first batch left for the U.S. in 2010 and returned in 2011 so the second pair left and returned in early 2013.

Grumman E-2C Hawkeye

Designed as a replacement for the E-1 Tracer, the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye was first flown in 1960. This all-weather tactical Airborne Early Warning aircraft is the only aircraft-carrier capable aircraft to carry a large rotating dome, which houses the antennas for its long-range radars. Used primarily by the US Navy, the E-2 provides surveillance and airborne early warning of anti-ship and enemy aircraft attacks. Sometimes called "The Hummer" because of its distinctive engine sounds, the E-2 is one of only two propeller airplanes that currently operate from aircraft carriers. The E-2 is still undergoing upgrades, with the modern E-2D taking its first flight in August 2007.
