CASA C-212Spain is the sole operator of two CASA C-212-200 Aviocars serial numbers TM.12D-72 ‘408-01’ and TM.121D-73 ‘408-02’ – both aircraft are operated by Escuadron 408 at Torrejon. The aircraft are easily identified by a circular radome mounted on top of the tailfin. The relatively small size of these aircraft and their endurance of around 5½ hours limits their suitability for operational missions and it is believed that both aircraft have now been relegated to operator training duties to which they are more suited.
There is some evidence that Angola might well also operate the Aviocar in a SIGINT role. It is believed that the aircraft are optimised for COMINT and have a similar external appearance to the Spanish aircraft – which may well indicate their origin.
