Introduced in 1964, the E-2 Hawkeye — also known as the "Super Fudd" — is a uniquely shaped airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. Over the years, it has received a series of upgrades and remains in both service and production today with a price-tag of nearly $200 million per unit. The Hawkeye is primarily used by the U.S. Navy, but has been featured in nine national militaries. The "C" is the most modern variant, equipped with upgraded electronics and surveillance/search radars.
