History

As replacement for the C-123K Provider and as support of the C-130 Hercules the RTAF bought in 1994 six Alenia G.222 they where delivered in 1995 and 1996. The G-222 is called transport aircraft No. 14 in the RTAF-Service and used by the 603 Sqn. of the 6. Wing at Don Muang. The G-222 or tripple two is known in the RTAF as trouble two. The maintenance is complicated, besides the costs of the “small Hercules” lie far more higher than those the real Hercules. Today only three planes are operated.

Geschichte

Als Ersatz für die C-123K Provider und zur Unterstützung der C-130 Hercules kaufte die RTAF 1994 sechs Alenia G.222 die 1995 und 1996 geliefert wurden.  Die G-222 werden als Transportflugzeuge Nr. 14 von der RTAF bezeichnet und von der 603 Staffel 6. Wing in Don Muang betrieben. Die G-222 oder tripple-two wird von der RTAF als trouble-two genannt. Der Unterhalt ist aufwändig und kompliziert, zudem liegen die Kosten der "kleinen Hercules" weit höher als die der richtigen Hercules. Heute werden nur noch drei Maschinen betrieben.
