C-2A (R) Greyhound Stats

 

C-2A Greyhound front drawing

The Grumman C-2A is a carrier-based transport, capable of carrying high-priority cargo and passengers, for Carrier On-Board Delivery (COD).  Litter patients may also be accommodated. Among the high priority items, the C-2A can deliver special stores, jet engines and afterburners. The maximum weight for payload and route support equipment combined is 10,000 pounds. Cargo tiedown is facilitated by a cage system. This system can restrain the cargo during a crash condition of 20 G's forwarded; it also provides restraint from the catapulting and arresting loads encountered during carrier operation. The large aft cargo ramp/door and powered winch facilitate fast turn-around time by straight-in rear cargo loading and unloading.
