Vietnam's C295 scheduled for service in 2015
The purchase contract - thought to be secured in 2013- also includes the supply of spares, maintenance, and training to the air force, which is expected to take delivery of the aircraft at intervals of about six months.
It is also understood that the aircraft are being sold to Vietnam in a basic transport configuration with no additional mission systems included. Airbus production of Vietnam's first C295 is currently under way in Seville, Spain.
