A Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) E-2C Early Warning Aircraft was damaged during a landing incident at Tengah Air Base. No one was injured in the incident. In 1987 four Northrop Grumman E-2C Hawkeyes were delivered to 111 Squadron to provide Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEW&C) for RSAF.
The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) E-2C Hawkeye is capable of providing air and surface surveillance, as well as tactical control of air assets. The aircraft were acquired from the US. Together with the Defence Science and Technology Agency (DSTA), the RSAF upgraded the entire computer and software systems of the E-2C. State-of-the-art equipment was adapted to the harsh military environment and millions of codes were rewritten. The RSAF and DSTA also designed and enhanced the interfaces between the various E-2C subsystems.
