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.
In November 1995 Taiwan received four E-2T Hawkeye (E-2C export version for Taiwan) aircraft from the U.S.. The first aircraft was U.S. serial 151709 and newly numbered #2501 and sent to Pingtung along with the other three. In 2008 the first 4 E-2Ts were approved to be upgraded to Hawkeye 2000 standards (E-2K) and carried out in two batches of two aircraft. The first batch left for the U.S. in 2010 and returned in 2011 so the second pair left and returned in early 2013.
