USAF and USA to recieve new C27J (Spartan)

If the rumors are true, the USAF got its way - and the Army got more tactical flexibility. The GMAS team's C-27J "Baby Herc" will replace the U.S. Army's 43 C-23 Sherpas, and fill some roles currently flown by the C-12 (based on the Beechcraft King Air twin turboprop) and C-26 Metroliner (based on the Fairchild Metro 23 twin turboprop) aircraft.
