ATRs And C-27Js

Mon Sep 27, 2004 1:29 pm

Is the C-27J an outgrowth of Alenia's ATR program, or is it just a matter of both being high-wing, twin turboprops? I can't find enough C-27 specs to decide.

The C-27J is an outgrowth of the C-27A, also known as the G.222. I believe this design predates the ATR design by quite a bit. Many of the similarities come from the high wing with fuselage podded landing gear design.

Is anyone able to provide a pic of an C-27A?

Now that I've seen some of the comparative numbers, I guess the planes reflect their missions and the solutions of the same group of engineers, but have little if any hardware in common.

Thanks for the G.222 steer, spacepope.
