Notes: This is an Israeli cargo aircraft that has also found use as a special missions aircraft in the Israeli Air Force. Many versions exist, such as EW, ELINT, ESM, reconnaissance, and others. It is also used to deliver special teams behind enemy lines die to its ability to fly low and maneuverable. The rear end of the fuselage hinges to the right for bulk cargo loading, and there are also doors on each side. The aircraft does not have ejection seats and is not capable of in-flight refueling. The Arava is also in service with Thailand and several Latin American and African countries. The two hardpoints are on the fuselage and normally carry machinegun pods or rockets.
