Model Description

This collectable model represents the E-2D Hawkeye, an airborne early warning aircraft – a carrier based eyes of the fleet. The latest version of the E-2 Hawkeye, the D model includes new avionics, upgraded radar and other systems. Painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by skilled craftsmen using a wealth of detail, this 1/48-scale model E-2D Hawkeye makes a great gift for any pilot, naval aviator, aviation enthusiast or history buff.

In U.S. service, the E-2 Hawkeye provides all-weather airborne early warning and command and control capabilities for all aircraft-carrier battle groups. Its other roles include sea and land surveillance, control of fighter planes for fleet air defense; control of attack planes on offensive missions; the control of search and rescue missions and for the relay of radio communications, air-to-air and ship-to-air.

The E-1 Hawkeye – distinguished by the 24-foot rotating dome mounted on its fuselage – entered the fleet in 1964, with the E-2C variant entering service in 1973. The E-2D is a significant upgrade over the E-2C Hawkeye, with a new avionics suite - including the new APY-9 radar - radio suite, mission computer, integrated satellite communications capability, flight management system, improved engines, a new glass cockpit, and the capability for air-to-air refueling. The APY-9 radar features electronically-aimed radar in its radome, replacing the older antenna that was physically rotated by electric motors.

The E-2D Hawkeye is scheduled for fleet deployment in 2014.

Along with deep water missions, the E-2 fleet has served overland as command and control and early warning aircraft. No replacement has been set for the Hawkeye, and it continues to serve worldwide in the U.S. Navy and in a number of foreign military services.
