Alenia North America has won a 285 M USD contract to deliver to the Afghan AF 18 refurbished G-222 previously operated by the Italian AF.
Here below the news (only in Italian).
|Quoting A342 (Reply 2):
Actually, quite a few G-222s are currently stored - ten in the USA (C-27A), three in Thailand and maybe also a few in Venezuela, since they suffer from an embargo. I wonder if Alenia could buy these aircraft, refurbish them and sell them to interested parties.

For the purpose of this contract Alenia will use the G-222 (former Italian Air Force) still parked @ PSA apt/afb.
