The Northrop E-2 Hawkeye is an all-weather airborne early warning aircraft (AEW). The E-2 was a twin-turboprop developed in the late 1950..s and early 1960..s for the USN. The E-2 is a carrier-capable aircraft and has received major upgrades in their electronics for the E-2B and E-2C with the E-2C also receiving improved turbo-prop engines. The E-2 has been in production since the 1960..s making it the longest production run of any carrier based aircraft. The E-2C variant..
became operational in 1973.

The Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeye was first introduced to the IAF in 1981 when 4 aircraft were delivered. Israel was the first foreign country to obtain the E-2Cs. The aircraft were assigned to the 92 Squadron ..Daya (Milvus) Squadron.. and played a role in the 1982 Lebanon War and other conflicts over the following years. Israel was the first user to install air-to-air refueling capabilities. In 2002 Israel sold 3 of the 4 E-2Cs to Mexico with the remaining aircraft being placed in the Israeli Air Force Museum.
