Aero India: Embraer reveals C-390 3-view, cockpit, design req’s

Flight’s Andrew Doyle is in Bangalore and this is all he sends me: C-390 pics! (Okay, that’s really all I wanted anyway.)

These Embraer slides shows the dramatic evolution of their jet-powered C-130 replacement concept from relatively simple E190 spin-off to a virtually all-new aircraft with perhaps a common cockpit. And are those CFM56 turbofans under the wing?

[WARNING: Slides are marked "Embraer Proprietary Information", in case you're thinking about emailing them around your company. If the lawyers come after you, just tell them the slides were presented at a very public press conference at Aero India.]

    I had often wondered why LM hadn’t proposed a turbofan version of the venerable C-130.

    The Lockheed C-141 Starlifter had the same fuselage section of the C-130 Hercules and was turbofan powered.
    Might it be considered a sort of jet powered Hercules?
