Fort Rucker gets C-12S

FORT RUCKER, Ala. -- Fort Rucker's Air Traffic Services Command last week welcomed the newest addition to its fleet, a new C-12S aircraft. At the same time it welcomed the new aircraft, it bid farewell to its predecessor, a JC-12D. Col. Michael E. Demirjian, ATSCOM commander, said the new C-12S is the only one in the Army's inventory. C-12S is a fully deployable aircraft capable of supporting the warfighter with the latest aircraft survivability equipment. The twin-engine turboprop is a military variant of the Beechcraft Super King Air and Beechcraft 1900. (Source: Army Flier via Dothan Eagle, 01/26/17)
