E-2D Hawkeye aerial refuelling

The capability to be refuelled in flight will be added to the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye battle management, command and control aircraft, starting with aircraft number 46 of the planned 75-aircraft production run. Production of this aircraft will begin this year and it will be delivered in 2020. Earlier production E-2Ds will be retrofitted with an aerial refuelling capability. David C Isby
