Leonardo has already flown a first C-27J Spartan produced for Slovenia

In addition to supplying the Slovenian air force with a second C-27J, the new order also includes personnel training and logistics services.

“Deployed in the most challenging geographic, environmental and operating contexts, the C-27J Spartan is capable of performing various types of defence and civil protection missions,” Leonardo says.
