Boeing Delivers Final Peace Eagle AEW&C Aircraft to Turkey

Boeing has delivered the fourth and final Peace Eagle Airborne Early Warning & Control (AEW&C) aircraft to the Turkish Air Force at Konya Air Base, completing the Turkish AEW&C fleet and enhancing Turkeys airspace surveillance and battle management capabilities.

This final aircraft includes upgraded software for the platform and the final element of the ground support segment, the Software Support Center (SSC). Previously delivered Peace Eagles are expected to receive the upgraded software soon.

Boeing worked with Turkish industry partners Turkish Aerospace Industries, Turkish Airlines, HAVELSAN and ASELSAN to complete the delivery of the final aircraft as well as establish technology capabilities like the Software Support Center, updated mission simulator software and mission support center software.

Turkey is currently the only nation in this region with the AEW&C capability. By combining Boeings innovative engineering with the expertise provided by local Turkish industry partners, weve delivered an advanced world-class airborne surveillance system to our customer, said Aysem Sargin Isil, managing director, Boeing Turkey.

Based on Boeings 737-700 commercial airplane, the 737 AEW&C aircrafts advanced radar and 10 state-of-the-art mission crew consoles can track airborne and maritime targets simultaneously. The battle management capabilities allow mission crew to direct offensive and defensive forces while maintaining continuous surveillance of the operational area.

Turkey, Australia and South Korea operate AEW&C platforms.
