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 May 1993 Taiwan signed a contract for two E-2T Hawkeye (T for Taiwan) that were the
equivalent of the E-2C. In 1999 the RoCAF approved the acquisition of two more E-2T. Some
parts from four retired E-2Bs were used that wouldn't affect their E-2C standards. The first two
aircraft were received in October 2004 with 2505 and 2506 arriving on May 19, 2005. On May 26
both aircraft flew to their home base at Pingtung's 439 Wing. January 1, 2000 the E-2Ts were
reassigned to the Pingtung 2nd AEW Squadron 20th Group.
