Comments:
When the acquisition project of these planes started in 1998, CASA was still an independent company, the C-295 has just made its maiden flight and its ASW version did not exist even in the dreams of the CASA/EADS/Airbus Military engineers and the P-8 Poseidon was not even on the drawing board.

The planes have AMASCOS which ties together multiple sensors – radar, FLIR, ESM, acoustic system, AIS, MAD, SLAR radar, IR/UV scanner – to detect, identify and track threats, maintain real-time tactical situation awareness, manage NATO and national tactical datalinks and deploy onboard weapon systems.
