Airbus Military has demonstrated the ability of the C-295 to launch torpedos at submarines, improving the aircraft's resume for replacing Lockheed Martin P-3C Orions.

So far, the 82 C-295s sold to 12 operators have functioned as transports or surveillance aircraft. The torpedo demonstration shows the aircraft can be adapted to the maritime strike role against sub-surface targets.

In a statement released on 7 May, Airbus Military described the torpedo launch as an "important milestone" for the C-295 maritime patrol aircraft programme.

"It is also a significant entry for Airbus Military into the market of antisubmarine warfare aircraft," the statement adds.

An Airbus Military spokeswoman said she was unaware if the C-295 required additional launch tests. "There might be more," the spokeswoman told Flightglobal.com.

She also declined to answer whether existing or new customers have purchased the torpedo launch capability. "That is not something we are commenting about on behalf of potential customers."

Torpedos for the C-295 are installed on two under-wing pylons. The aircraft is also adapted with a store management system, which is linked to the fully integrated tactical system, a mission suite also developed by Airbus Military.
