Help Identifying Type

Thu May 10, 2007 12:10 am

Can one of you immensely knowledgeable types here please help me identify this plane? It was shot at Al Ain Air Force Base. I think if it was civilian it would be a Cessna Caravan, but as a military plane, does it have another designation? Many thanks!

It's a Caravan. Maybe Jordan have a special designation, but AFAIK Cessna doesn't.

Military
U-27A A military offering of the 208A.
C-98 The Brazilian Air Force designation for the standard U-27.
C-16 The proposed American Army designation for an armed version of the U-27 that was intended to be used in the Central America for counter guerrilla/insurgency warfare. However this aircraft was rejected due to the aircraft's vulnerability to ground fire.
