Hi Guys, I know there's been a thread discussing Japan new Tarsnport the Kawasaki C-2, but try to find it, seems it's been inactive for sometime. So I try to put this thread on the new Kawasaki XC-2. The idea that I would to ask, whether do you think C-2 will be a visible alternative in the world market for C-130J or the Planned further development of C 130 or even the A-400. From what the Japan Times stated, KHI seems also try to market this in CIVILIAN Vertions. This seems KHI idea to try to marketed the aircraft but still circumspect the Japanese ban on selling military/lethal products abroad. I personally do not have good knowledge on the extent of Japanese ban on exporting military products. However a Cargo plane like this can be viable to sell it under civilian regristartions, then converted back to military use. For me it seems this plane provide viable alternative and can be a good choices for some nations that wants more than C-130 but can't afford C-17 or does not want a turboprop like A-400. Provide them to world market will potentially push down the costs quite significantly then will made this viable for C-130 replacements or even alternatives from A-400.
