Nicknamed "Super Fudd" after its predecessor the E-1 "Willy Fudd," the E-2 Hawkeye is a uniquely-shaped airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft. Introduced in 1964, it has received a series of upgrades over the years 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, while the "T" is simply an E-2C operating in the People's Republic of China.
